Miguel Olivera

Graduate Hall Director

Amanda Allison

Miguel finds himself traveling all the way from Dearborn Heights, Michigan to the lovely city of Valdosta. He graduated from Central Michigan University in May 2015 with a Bachelor’s degree in English, with a concentration in creative writing. Miguel is working towards a Master’s degree in Higher Education and this is his first year at Valdosta State. He looks forward to spending this year working with the students of Lowndes Hall. At Central, Miguel was a Resident Assistant, the Risk Manger of his fraternity (Phi Kappa Tau), and a senator in the Student Government Association.

When not at work or studying, Miguel can be caught reading, writing, playing a card, board, or video game, or listening to his stand-up comedy channel on Pandora. He hopes to write the next great American novel, or at least a pretty decent one.
