to

an

unclassified

academic

staff

status.

Some

of

the

first

professionals to be hired at this time included Bob Massey,

Ray Du Vall, and David Aronson (Hogue, 1986).

According to Dr. Reid Horle, who eventually became the

coordinator of the College Student Personnel program and

worked closely with the hiring of head residents, once younger

individuals with their Masters Degree began to be hired the

emphasis

on

programming

in

the

halls

really

blossomed.

The

head resident title was soon changed to hall director and dormitories began to be referred to as residence halls.

At

the same time, the Student Development Theory essentially became the central focus of the housing operation (Horle, 1987).

Currently the University exclusively employs individuals

with their Masters in College Student Personnel, or a similar

degree,

as

hall

directors.

They

are

responsible

for

overseeing

the operation of their halls, for implementing both educational and recreational programs as well as working with a "quarter

time" assignment in a specific housing related area

(Koehler,

1987).

The

position

is

a

three

year

maximum

term.

Without a shred of doubt, the role of the current day hall director differs drastically from that of the housemother

of

yesteryear.

But

quite

fortunately

one

thing

that

has

remained the same throughout for the students residing in

the the

years is the care and concern

halls.

One

can

only

hope

that will never change!
