Magers Hall Resident Director
Greetings, my name is Jayme Baumann! I grew up in the Rio Grande Valley area of South Texas, but I moved to Beloit, Wisconsin as a teenager. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh with a Bachelors degree in Political Science and International Studies in May 2023. During undergrad, I was a Community Advisor for three years. I was also involved in the Oshkosh Student Association, the campus wide student government, as the LGBTQ+ Advocacy Senator for a year and the UW-Oshkosh Model United Nations Team for four years.
During my free time, I like to read and binge watch whatever seems good! My favorite genre of books is horror or fantasy, but I love drama and comedy movies the best. I also love exploring things whether it be trails, shops, or museums. I’m looking forward to the new year and I’m excited to meet everyone so please come by my office and say hello!
