Campus life programs and residence halls have a new manager at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture.

Erika Arambula coordinates student housing, activities for students who lives in the three NCTA residence halls, and supervises a team of 12 residence assistants. She joined the NCTA staff in early March.

“We welcome Erika to our student services team and value the three and half years of experience she has with residence life during her college career,” said Jennifer McConville, NCTA associate dean

The 2013 graduate of Yuma High School in Colorado majored in sociology at the University of Wyoming.  She also holds a minor in graphic design.

“I am enjoying getting to know the students who live on campus and the RAs, and will be working with the Curtis community this summer as we prepare for the fall semester,” Arambula said.

Her hobbies include photography and drawing.

Rural life is part of her background with a parent working in agriculture.

“I grew up on old western movies, and lived in an agricultural town,” Arambula says with a chuckle.

Her office is located at the NCTA Welcome Center in the Nebraska Agriculture Industry Education Center.  Similar to the traditional “house parent” who lived on campus since the institution started as a high school, Arambula resides on an apartment in one of the dormitories.

“As a recent college graduate, I can relate to students and like living among college residents,” she said. “I have enjoyed working in higher education and on the administrative side of campus. I can switch from being laid back but also to being energetic.”
