Hey hey hey! I'm Jake Ryan, and I'm the Resident Director for Landen. I grew up a couple hours south of Bolivar in Northwest Arkansas with my parents and three brothers. In the spring of 2013 I graduated from Union University with a degree in International Business Administration. Last October I was blessed to marry my best friend and the most incredible girl I know, Claren. Less than a week after we married we loaded down our Honda Civic and travelled across the country to Butte, Montana where we worked as college ministry interns at Montana Tech. God has blessed us incredibly through that move and through our time in Montana, more so than we'll ever know. We really enjoyed our time in Butte, and will always love that city and the people that call Butte, Montana, and the entire Northwest, home; however, we were hoping to get back down South, closer to home. Through a weird series of events I was offered the Resident Director position here, and I couldn't be more excited about what God's going to do here at SBU.
