Featured Res Life Tiger
Amberlon Williams, residence life coordinator, is from a small town in the Mississippi Delta, Mound Bayou, MS. Growing up she was the only girl of three brothers, but always had her Shih Tzu "Cuddy" to keep her company.
She attended Mississippi State University, where she received her Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in Clinical Exercise Physiology. Amberlon began her journey in Housing and Residence Life as a resident advisor at MSU. This position sparked her interest in the field of higher education and, more specifically, student affairs.
While completing her master's in higher education at MSU, she served as a residence director for two years for their housing department and also assisted the Dean of Students office at Mississippi University for Women. "My favorite aspect of working within housing and res life positions is having the opportunity to interact with our students on multiple levels. Throughout the good and bad, I am able to serve as a resource to the students," said Amberlon.
Amberlon began working at LSU in Fall 2019 and is now a proud Tiger. She enjoys that wherever she goes, there is plenty of purple and gold. When Amberlon is not at work, she is thrifting! "Regardless of the place, I can find the best deals and the best prices. Dirt Cheap and Bargain Hunt are my second home!" exclaimed Amberlon.
