PASS logo

Each hall has PASS (Peer Academic Support Services) volunteers who are willing and able to help you.  PASS members offer to lend a hand in their best classes where you might need a hand.  You can visit PASS members in any building!  As soon as we have some PASS members identified for this year, you will be able to click on the link on the logo above to see a list for each hall.

Welcome to the ARM Academic Success Spot. As you know, each of your buildings has at least one ARM, or Academic Resource Mentor. But there are lots of you, and they can't be everywhere at once, so we've created this page to provide you with some resources that you can access when your ARM isn't there to help.  

button logoWho and what are the ARMs?

ARMs are Academic Resource Mentors -- peers whose goal is to help you find the information, locate the resources, and connect you to people who can help you in your academic endeavors. They provide academic and life skills programming, too. ARMs have office hours in your halls, when you can see them to get assistance. They are students, just like you! They can also help you touch base with PASS members, student volunteers who offer tutoring or assistance in subjects they do well in.

We're sure you'll see your ARM around in the building, but just in case, here are the ARMs for 2015 - 16:

Centennial

Hi!  My name is Nadia and I am one of the two ARMs in Centennial.  I am currently in my sophomore year and a biochemistry major. I am hoping to help as many people as I can and get people involved with our PASS program.  I also plan on providing the necessary sources, support, and skills to my residents so they can succeed to the greatest they can be.

For fun, I like to travel and participate in athletic activities.  My favorite place to go is Belize, as I go there two or three times a year.  I am currently a softball player at Western and I advise everyone to get involved, whether it's a sport or club.   I hope to have an exciting year with my residents and staff members.

Grasso

Here at WCSU, I am a sophomore studying Music Education.  I am mainly a singer, and I enjoy performing practically very genre!  And when I'm not working, I like to take care of my nails, play video games, and see my friends.

My sincere hope is to provide my residents with the support and skills they need to be the exemplary students I know they all can be.

Pinney

Hi! My name is Jamie Maitland. I was born and raised in Bridgeport, CT. I am going into my fourth year as an ARM and I’m excited to begin this journey. Throughout my years as an ARM I have had the distinct pleasure of helping my residents and also helping myself. I learn something new about myself every year-something that adds to my personal growth.

During my previous years as an ARM I have worked on midtown campus with freshmen. However, this year I am working with upperclassmen in Pinney Hall.  I’m looking forward to adapting my skills so that I can help the upperclassmen. This will be a big change for me, but it’s a change that I’m excited about. I am also going into my senior year as a nursing major and this year I am the secretary of the Student Nurses’ Association (SNA).

I like to read, roller skate, bake cookies, and most importantly hang out with my friends.  I am looking forward to enjoying this year so if you need anything please do not hesitate to contact me. I try to be as positive as I can possibly be (there is enough negativity in the world) and if you need a boost or some encouragement feel free to come to me!

Newbury

Hello Everyone!  I am the new ARM of Pinney Hall (C52).  I am a Nursing and Biology major (yes, both).  I am also an honors student in the Honors Program.  I can help with almost all biology and nursing classes with some chemistry courses, too.  What I don't know, I will find out for you.  All this keeps me busy, but I will make sure to make time for you.  I will also enact the OPEN DOOR POLICY so you can come to my room (when I'm not at the front desk) during my office hours for any needed help!  Let's start the semester off strong!

Pinney

Hello everyone, my name is Qin Lin and and Seven is my nickname (my lucky number as well!) This is my second year being one of the ARMs in Pinney Hall.  I am currently a senior majoring in Financial Accounting and minoring in Finance.

I am also involved in many school organizations: Kathwari Honors Program, Accounting Club, Rotaract Club, and Student Government Association. My goal is to be there for you when you need me, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you need any help or have any questions.

 My favorite word is Hope, which stands for “Hold On, Pain Ends”. There is always hope!
