College East RD

About Matt:
My name is Matt Richardson.  This is my 5th year as a Resident Director.  I work full time as a middle school science teacher in Hudsonville.  I graduated from Hope in 2009, where I met my wife, Brie (through Res Life).  We have no children yet, but many nephews and nieces who we love to spend time with.  

Why we love College East:
“College East is a great place to live while at Hope because you have the upperclassmen feel of independent living while the close community of a residential hall.  College East is always filled with students who are involved and impacting Hope's campus in a positive way.  We have a great year ahead with three awesome RAs: Daniel, Teagan, and Molly.”
