Recruitment and Retention Commissioner

Hello Everyone!
My name is Mikie Phouthavong (pronouns: he, him, his) and I will be serving as the ASUCI Recruitment and Retention (RAR for short) Commissioner for the 2020-2021 school year. I am currently a third year Biological Sciences major. Some of my hobbies include: cooking, swimming, hiking, traveling, sight seeing, spending quality time with family and friends, and playing on my switch (ACNH?). I was fortunate enough to serve as an intern for RAR last year and loved every minute of it. I am looking forward to creating long-lasting memories and events for y’all and bringing our anteater community together! :)

Office Hours: Thursdays 4pm-5pm via Zoom ( )
