Archer Hall Director

Ryan Poynter, from Somerset, Kentucky, has been director of Robinson-Cook Hall since August 2013.

Ryan will be graduating in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in English with an emphasis in creative writing as well as in Journalism and Public Relations. He plans to go on to pursue a master’s degree. During his time at the UC, Ryan worked with residence life in Siler and Mahan Hall.

Ryan has been involved in many ways here at UC, from helping lead Fuge Camps to playing intramural sports. He has participated in Baptist Campus Ministries in life groups and served on the worship team as part of United Campus Worship.  He also has written for The Patriot (UC’s student newspaper). Ryan attends Cornerstone Community Church.

Ryan met his closest friends by either working with them or serving them as an RA. His favorite memories at UC all spring from experiences with those friends.

To Robinson-Cooke residents, Ryan says, “Get involved! House Council is a great way to do that. Planning events and then seeing residents come and enjoy them is incredibly satisfying. Or, if that isn't your flavor, you can still get to know the folks you live next to. Rob Cook is blessed to have suite-style rooms. You'll probably see your suitemates every day, so you have an incredible opportunity to get to know them and build friendships.”
