Becky Nantz

Archer Hall Director

Becky Nantz, from Knoxville, Tennessee, has been director of Archer Hall since June 2009.

Becky served as a resident assistant in Gillespie Hall for two years before graduating in May 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Art. She spent one year as graduate assistant before making the transition to residence hall director.

Becky currently attends Main Street Baptist Church in Williamsburg, but she also enjoys visiting other local churches to watch special programs by UC students. 

Some of her favorite UC memories are from Archer Hall parties. At one of the Christmas parties, Archer residents made gingerbread houses as a charity fundraiser.  Residents loved the Christmas party so much that they spent over three hours building the gingerbread houses; moreover, their fundraising goals were met. 

Archer Hall is a place many students call their second home.  Becky says that “Archer has been my home for five years, so I strive to make it a comfortable, safe, and enjoyable place for all the women who live here.”
