Kristin Scriven is incredibly excited to serve as Preston Residential College's Graduate Assistant for the next two years. A proud Hoosier at heart, Kristin originally hails from Fort Wayne, Indiana but spent the last five years living in downtown Indianapolis where she attended Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). From there she graduated with a B.A. in Communication Studies and a B.A.J. in Journalism with a focus in Public Relations. While at IUPUI Kristin was heavily involved in Greek Life, Housing and Residence Life, Summer Orientation, Independent Student Research, and various other student run organizations.
Kristin is pursuing her Master's Degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs here at the University of South Carolina and has already fallen in love with Columbia and the great state of South Carolina. A true midwesterner, Kristin says "ope" often, eats ranch dressing with everything, and grew up in a town surrounded by cornfields and barns. When not in class or working, she enjoys visiting local coffee shops, exploring around town, or watching Netflix. Kristin is the textbook definition of "night owl" and is very passionate about donuts, gender equality, the Oxford comma, and supporting students in higher education.
