Sparks Hall









Marissa Hoofard





Hi! My name is Marissa Hoofard, and I am the Sparks Hall Second Floor Girls RA. I am Nineteen years old and currently a Junior Early Childhood Education Major at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. I graduated in 2006 from Lexington High. All through High School I was involved in many different organizations and athletics. I am also very involved here on Campus. I am the Part-Time Health Services Secretary, a Resident Assistant, a member of SNEA, a Student Orientation Drove Leader, a Supreme Court Justice for Student Senate, and I am also involved with Invisible Children, and other organizations. When I am not here on campus I am usually at home with my Dad and little sister. One of the main reasons I decided to become and enjoy being an RA here at USAO are the relationships and bonds that I have made not only with the residents on my floor but with those in the entire building. I feel that Sparks Hall is a fun and enjoyable environment that stimulates friendships and personal growth. I am always here for those that live in Sparks to talk about anything and everything from what classes to take to the stress of classes and anything and everything in-between.

Heather Lindsey





My name is Heather Lindsey! I'm a fifth year senior majoring in Deaf Education with a specialization in Early Childhood Education. I'm a 2003 graduate of Tuttle High School. I'm a member of the Student National Education Association, Grady County and Oklahoma Reading Councils, and the American Sign Language Club. I really like to watch movies, play board games, and shop! My favorite website is icanhascheezburger. com (check it out!). I'm the first floor girls' RA and I really enjoy getting know the residents as well as planning fun things to do around the dorms. I don't really know why there's more time for Facebook than for my textbooks, but I'll figure that out later.








Paulo Kubis





Hello, my name is Paulo Kubis and this is my second year to serve as the RA for the 2nd floor of Sparks Hall. I am from Brazil and currently a junior Business Administration major.

My name is Wesley, but pretty much everybody calls me "Xuxu" around here. I am the 3rd floor RA at Sparks Hall for the second year. I am currently a junior majoring in Physical Education with a minor in Spanish. I am from Belo Horizonte, Brazil and Portuguese is my first language. I came to USAO in 2005 to get a college education and play soccer. I try to enjoy every second around here to make my time in college as much fun as possible. I am also a member of the International Student Association, Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society, and just had my name mentioned in the Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Being an RA is more than a job to me, it is the opportunity to make friends, help people and to be part of the University staff.
