Tatum Hansen 


Hello! I’m Tatum and I’m the new RSA President. I'm majoring in Politics and Government with an emphasis in US politics and minoring in Spanish. Outside of studying and RSA I play guitar, drum kit, I am apart of Taiko Club, Beekeeping Club, and I work at Security. I also love American Sign Language and hope to continue studying it some day. I was a part of the Todd/Phibbs RHA last year and I am really excited to have a larger role on campus and to help improve the experience of living on campus.

Director of Business Services

A.J. Oto


Hello, my name is Anthony-Joseph Oto but I usually go by AJ. I am currently a sophomore at the University of Puget Sound majoring in biochemistry. I am from Livermore, California, a town near San Francisco. Some fun facts about me are that I earned my first degree black belt in Shorin-Ryu Shorinkan when I was ten years old and my second degree black belt when I was sixteen. I also did hip hop dance and theater throughout high school. I came to the university because of the small community and ability to really connect to the teachers which I feel I have achieved. I love it’s beautiful campus, and even kinder students and staff. I am very excited to be this years RSA director of business.
