Close to the heart of campus, Twain is adjacent to volleyball and basketball courts, and expansive lawns for lounging and relaxing. Together with the RFs, the Twain staff work hard at creating an inclusive, welcoming, warm, supportive and safe environment for everyone. This effort takes a variety of forms, from dinners at the RFs’ apartment to house concerts, fireside chats hosted by the staff, and trips exploring some of the natural and cultural wonders of our area. Informally, residents regularly roll out to support each other in theater and sports, concerts, and other parts of campus life.

When not out and about, you’ll find Twainiacs in the East Lounge relaxing playing pool or table tennis, video or board games, or watching movies on the big screen. North Lounge is typically quieter, hosting study groups, quiet conversation, and impromptu piano performances

Along with her team, she is responsible for applying best practices to prevention and intervention efforts for all Stanford students, which includes education and training, resource coordination, assessment, and supporting policy and protocol development and implementation. Carley completed her undergraduate degree in sociology and graduate degrees in public health and social work at the University of Michigan. She discovered what would become her professional passion as a peer educator for the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center at UM. During her graduate programs, Carley worked to improve health outcomes of older adults by reducing social isolation with the Luella Hannan Memorial Foundation in Detroit. She also did outreach and testing recruitment at local bars and clubs with the HIV/AIDS Resource Center (HARC) in Ypsilanti, MI.

Christian Jaskulski is an Account Executive in Stanford Athletics Ticket Sales and Services, blending his passion for athletics with his background in marketing and business. Prior to joining Stanford Athletics, Christian worked in business and recruiting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and also coached high school football. Christian began coaching high school football after his own collegiate football career, and although he’s shifted roles within the athletic realm, he is passionate about inspiring young adults through outside-the-classroom experiences. He deeply appreciates how intellectual growth is supported by involvement in extracurriculars and vice versa. During his time in college, Christian was a contributor to campus life in collaboration with his Residence Assistants to help create activities in the hall to help build a better sense of community. Although they are loyal fans to the Packers, Bucks, and Brewers, Carley and Christian are avid general sports fans and enjoy watching games in-person--especially supporting the Stanford Cardinal!
Carley and Christian were both first-generation college students who found communities on their respective campuses that helped them flourish. Because of these experiences, they have a passion for creating a living and learning residence in which all residents, RAs, and RFs co-develop a community of care.
