Emmanuel Ayiku

Residence Coordinator


This work is an opportunity to serve the next generation of leaders.

Being a part of students’ journey through college brings me so much joy. I love getting to know them as individuals and helping them overcome barriers.


You have to make time for the things that matter to you. It’s easy to feel lost in such a big university, so you have to intentionally go out of your way to make a difference in someone’s life. -Emmanuel

The best spot on campus

My favorite spot is sitting by the big parking lot by the levee and watching the sunset. No sunset is ever the same!

My passion

Helping people to find their purpose in life. I believe everyone has a gift to serve their generation, and getting to witness student start to find their gift is very rewarding.

Advice I don't leave home without

"The greatest fight that a human will ever have is between the person they are now and the person they are capable of becoming."
