Honors Resident Advisors

Joe Barton William Josef Barton IV
Resident Advisor – The Shire (Middle Earth Honors Hall)

Hi everyone! My name is William Josef Barton IV, but you can call me Joe! I’m originally from Walnut Creek, California, but I grew up in Arizona; Incline Village, Nevada; and Marin County, California. I am a fourth year double major in Political Science and Economics, with a minor in Spanish. I’m really looking forward to being the RA for The Shire! Middle Earth is absolutely the best. Currently, I’m in the process of applying to law school and am conducting research on counterinsurgency with Dr. Sereseres. I’m the Wing Commander for Air Force ROTC at UCLA & UCI, and will be commissioning as an officer upon graduation. I am also a devoted Eagle Scout, so feel free to test my Boy Scout knowledge. I enjoy Ultimate Frisbee, Netflix, working out, and memes. I love my family and I love my puppy, Indy! Please come introduce yourself to me at any time. I would absolutely love to hear from you!

Lani Nugent Lani Nugent
Resident Advisor – Arroyo (Mesa Court Honors Hall)

Hello there! My name is Lani Nugent, and I am beyond excited to help you have an awesome time here at UCI! I’m a second year Cognitive Science and Education Science double major with a plan to get a masters in teaching later on. UCI has been an incredibly special place for me to grow as a person because the people you meet here are some of the most supportive and caring ones you’ll ever know. Helping others find where they thrive is something I’ve realized I love doing, so I worked as an orientation staffer this past summer and will be the RA of Arroyo in Mesa Court this year. I enjoy making new friends, watching movies, singing karaoke, learning how to cook, and going to Disneyland. Please know that the RA’s and I are all here to help you succeed and make the most of your time here, so don’t hesitate to ask any of us for help. I can’t wait to meet you all, so I hope to see you around very soon! :^)

Kathryn Reyes Kathryn Reyes
Resident Advisor – Loma (Mesa Court Honors Hall)

Hello CHP! My name is Kathryn Reyes and I’m the RA of Loma this year. I’m a fourth year Biological Sciences major originally from the Bay Area, but I call Irvine my home away from home. On campus, I am on the board of a pre-health fraternity, Delta Epsilon Mu, and I conduct research at the Pediatric Exercise Research Center. I also volunteer at the UCI Medical Center. I enjoy working out, but I also love grabbing a bite to eat and hanging out with friends. I’m excited to be a part of your journey at UCI and with CHP and to make your first year unforgettable! My goal is to make my residents feel like Irvine and Loma are their homes away from home too, so don’t be afraid to talk to me if you need advice or a listening ear. I’m here for you!

blank Royal Siu
Resident Advisor – Houses 1006, 1010 & 1012 (Arroyo Vista Honors Houses)

Greetings everyone! My name is Royal Siu and it is my pleasure to serve as the CHP RA of Arroyo Vista for the second year in a row. (P.S. If you enjoy board games, feel free to stop by. We usually have weekly board game nights on Fridays.) I am a fourth year Pharmaceutical Sciences major with plans to go to pharmacy school. I really enjoy gaming and technology and I built my own desktop for this purpose. Other than that I am half Vietnamese and half Chinese and I can speak a bit of Cantonese. If you ever do meet me and know some Canto, please feel free to have a chat with me — I’ll do my best to keep up! I am also involved with the gaming club, Blizzard@UCI, as their VP this year. I am also both a CHP and a Pharm Sci Peer Mentor hoping to educate, foster, and promote the growth of my mentees at UCI. I am always eager to listen; let me know if you ever want to chat!
