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.

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.
