Victoria Leith, Sedona Hall RD

VICTORIA LEITH

Oversees: Sedona Hall, with Kris Hayes

Age: 22

Hometown: Ventura, Calif.

GCU experiences: Moving to GCU and starting this position was my first time in Arizona. The two months have treated me well and I am so happy to be here. I will be starting my master's degree in leadership this year.

Q: Since you love to bake, what goodies will you be sharing with residents of Sedona Hall? And how do we get some?

A: Sedona will never go hungry. It will run out of running water before it ever runs out of cookies. I love to bake. If you want a cookie, just ask. I tend to run out of chocolate chips, though. I need to set up a tab at a local grocery store for all the chocolate chips I buy.

Q: Being new to the area, what places do you frequent in the Phoenix area?

A: La Grande Orange on 40th Street, just south of Camelback Road. I could not be more passionate about this topic. I could live there. A week hasn't gone by that I haven't gone at least once. It's a coffee shop/grocery/pizzeria/restaurant/place that sells wine AND baked goods. And it always smells incredible.

Q: You like to run. Treadmill or neighborhood track?

A: When it's not blazin' hot, I prefer to run outside. I'm a California girl! The treadmill will have to do for now. I have claimed one all to myself in the Rec Center. I get territorial when people are on it. Don't they know it's mine?

Q: What is unique about the culture or community of your residence hall?

A: Sedona is starting from ground zero. Kris (my co-RD) and I get to create legacies, traditions, friendships... The way we run things in Sedona this year will set the tone for years to come. No pressure, right?

Q: Why take a job as a residence director? What’s rewarding about your job?

A: I've been blessed by incredible role models throughout my life and college experience. I hope to be half the influence to my students as my mentors were to me. I want to walk through life with them and what better way to do that than live with them? I want to be there from move-in day to graduation day in the laughter, tears, mourning, joy, praise and sadness. I am eager to watch my students blossom from curious freshman into the men and women God will mold them into.

Bible Verse

Where then are the gods you made for yourselves? Let them come if they can save you when you are in trouble! For you have as many gods as you have towns, O Judah. (Jeremiah 2:28)
