the Mods, Warkentin Court features apartment-like modules that encourage and foster community living. Each mod houses seven to nine students. Each one has a lounge area with cable TV hookups, a large bathroom and five bedrooms, each with personal phone lines and Internet ports. Second- and third-story mods have balconies overlooking a center courtyard. Warkentin Court, reserved primarily for returning upper-level students, features 24-hour inter-visitation.
Warkentin Court has one professional staff member, the resident director, who lives in the hall with the residents. S/he is in charge of ensuring the safety and well-being of each resident. The RD is aided by two Resident Assistants.
Meet your Resident Director:
Amber Chalashtari: Amber is originally from a rural community in eastern Colorado. She graduated from McPherson (Kan.) College with a Bachelor of Arts in interior design. She will complete her elementary education degree here at Bethel in spring 2013.
While at McPherson, Amber was a resident assistant for two years. Following graduation, she worked at The Great Indoors in Colorado as a kitchen and bath designer, before returning to Kansas to work at McPherson College for four year as an admissions and financial aid counselor. She has been an RD at Bethel since 2006. Amber is married to Jason and they have three boys.
Every year is a new and exciting adventure, says Amber.
No two years are the same. There is the thrill of getting to know the new students and the joy of seeing students move on to the next phase in their lives. I truly enjoy being a part of students’ lives.
