Welcome to Residence Life and the Hillside Suites! My name is Tyler Silagyi, and along with being the director of Residence Life, I am also a JCC alumnus and previous residence director here at the college. Through this position, I hope to provide our residents with an experience that helps them grow into mature young adults ready to take on their next steps in life.

In Residence Life, we firmly believe that the more connected you are, the more successful you will become! It is my hope that by choosing to live on-campus, student residents will be able to make long-lasting and valuable connections with each other, faculty, staff, and the Jamestown community. Everyone is capable of success, which relies on the choices that each of us make. This is the time to define who you are as a person and who you wish to become. Choose to be great at everything you do and you will find continuous success with every new adventure.

I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC, so get ready for some southern charm. I look forward to working with and getting to know the students at JCC. I want to not only help you become great students, but also adults who can make it once they leave this institution of higher learning.
