Handy Hints and Tasty Tips


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:

Who Am I?   Where Am I?

Hi!  My name is Nadia and I am one of the two ARMs in Centennial.  This is going to be my second year as an ARM and I couldn't be any more excited! I am looking forward to interacting and helping out my residents as it also helps me grow and learn new things about others. I am hoping to help as many people as I can and get them 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. If there is something I don't know, I will make sure I do my best to get an answer for you! 

I am currently a junior and majoring in biochemistry. For fun, I like to travel, eat, and participate in athletic activities.  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.

Hello! My name is Melanie Jones and I'm a junior music education major with a percussion primary. I am from Stamford, where I currently teach the percussion program at Stamford High School. I have also taught at various other music programs around Fairfield County. I'm a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success, WCSU Percussion Club, and National Association for Music Education. I'm a Kathwari Honor's student as well!

When I'm not in class or teaching, I absolutely love being outdoors, eating Panera, watching Thoughty2 videos on Youtube, and listening to music. When I graduate, I hope to attend graduate school in Australia and live there for a few years.

 This is my first year as an ARM and I'm super excited to get to work with everyone in Centennial! As an ARM, I want to enable everyone to feel confident in their academic abilities. I love helping people as best as I can and I hope to provide useful solutions to any challenge. We're all here to achieve the same thing and I'm here to help!

Hi, my name is Samantha Feliciano and I am a junior music education major with a focus in classical voice. Although, I study opera and teaching methods in hopes to become a choir director I have a true passion for jazz music as well as art! I am a member of the Opera and Jazz clubs on campus as well as the National Association for Music Educators and the American Choral Directors Association. When I’m not practicing or working with residents I enjoy going thrift store shopping, expanding my record collection and hanging out with my friends!

I hope that as an A.R.M I am able to help my residents find all of the resources, support and motivation they need to have a success semester! I may specialize more in the music field for tutoring, however I can help you move forward in any of your areas of need. Even if I may not be at my door I am always available when in need of answers, don't be afraid to come to me with anything you need and I will be there for you to make sure you reach your goals.

Hi, WCSU! I am a junior studying Music Education. I am primarily a singer and secondarily a percussionist.  I'm also a member of Martini Glass Acapella, a member of the WCSU chapter of the National Assoc. for Music Educators, a member of WCSU chapter of the American Choir Directors Assoc., and a member of the university radio station, WXCI 91.7FM.  Aside from that, I also really enjoy doing my nails, playing video games, and hanging out with my friends. 

For me, being an ARM means helping people to the absolute best of my ability while also providing support and encouragement.  Never ever hesitate to ask me any questions no matter how big or small. And be sure to stop by my room and say hi! 
Jamie Maitland 






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!

With all my roles on campus I can be very busy at times but I will do my best to make as much time for you as I can. Come see me during my office hours!
