Dear Residential Student,

My name is Louie Sanchez and I am excited to have the privilege of serving as your Nyack College Director of Residence Life. My staff and I are looking forward to welcoming you to the residential hall, we call “The Bay.” We are committed to all the Lord has for us in the months ahead. I believe that together—students and staff—we can make 2021-2022 a great year! 

The community we build here at The Bay is a significant part of your Nyack College experience outside of the classroom. The Residence Life team has been collaborating closely with other members of the Office of Student Development, which include the Athletics, Housing, Student Engagement and Counseling Service.
