Michael Bock

Senior Resident

Room: Munford 101


Welcome to the International Residential College!  I'm heading into my fourth year at UVa and am majoring in Political and Social Thought as well as beginning my first year of work towards a Masters Degree in the Batten School. I was born in Helsinki, Finland and lived in Kuwait City and Vancouver, BC before moving to Virginia. Among other things, I'm involved with the University Judiciary Committee on grounds as well as initiatives around education policy in the US.  When I'm not on grounds, I love spending time in Dowtown Charlottesville or in the awesome parks and trails in the area as well as traveling to spend time with friends and family.   The International Residential College is home to some of the most interesting students on grounds and I look forward to meeting everyone-please don't hesitate to stop by 101 Munford if you need anything, or even just to say hi.  I'm always up to have a long conversation about anything, everything, and sometimes even nothing.


Scott Tilton

Resident Advisor of Hoxton

Room: Hoxton 106

Hello, my name is Scott Tilton. I am a French Creole from New Orleans (New-a-leunz), Louisiana. However, I am not from the cast of Swamp People. This will be my second year, and I am probably going to major in Foreign Affairs and French. Over the summer I studied on Semester at Sea, but I’ll be glad to return to the IRC as an RA in Hoxton. I am passionate about American football (Who Dat?!) and I enjoy playing the piano. If you are a spicy food fanatic, Francophile, Saints fan, musician, or would just like to, please stop by my room at Hoxton 106 and say hello. Laissez les bons temps rouler (Cajun: Let the good times role!) 

Maddalena Richards

Resident Advisor of Munford 3rd Floor

Room: 344 Munford

Hi Everyone!  My name is Maddalena Richards (don't worry! I go by Lena).  I was born and raised in the incredibly small town of Linden, Virgina, but have been lucky enough to travel around the world.  I'm a third year at UVa studying Media Studies and Government.  Even though I'm an Italian-American and I love to cook and eat Mediterranean food I love, love, love Indian food.  so if you're ever craving some curry come and find me. Besides Indian food, I also enjoy going on adventures-from walking across Charlottesville to driving across the country I'm always down for a trip and have learned so much while traveling.  Since coming ot UVa I have become pretty involved in a lot of media and volunteer groups, so if you have any questions about either feel free to ask me. In short, UVa really is one of my favorite places in the world and I love the IRC so even though I haven't met most of you yet, I'm sure I'll love you too!  If you ever want to eat, explore, or just hang out comve visit room 344 in Munford.



Nour Alamiri

Resident Advisor of Munford 3rd Floor

Room: Munford 332

Hi everyone!  My name is Nour Alamiri and I am a third year in the college.  Being raised as an Iraqi-American in Fairfax, Virginia and traveling to over 20 countries around the world has exposed me to a wide variety of cultures and languages.  And I love it!  Aside from traveling, I love soccer, dance, music, movies, food, and fashion.  I am so excited to be at the IRC for another year, and look forward to meeting all of you!                                                          



Annika Schunn

Resident Advisor of Munford 2nd Floor

Room: 244 Munford

Hello friends!  My name is Annika.  I'm an American-born German living in Virginia. I love learning, food, and adventuring.  I like to fill my spare time with theater, music, and relaxation-my favorite musical is Les Miserables and my favorite play is Shipwrecked!  An Entertainment.  I'm a lover of words and language- I love a good book, poem , play, or even just a well-told story.  I have had my fair share of travel but there are still many places I'd like to see-among them Argentina, Greece, Turkey, Japan, Romania, Poland, Sweden, England, and Spain.  If you've ever been to any of these places, I'd love to hear about it!  I am very excited to be living and working in the IRC, one of my favorite places on grounds, as part of the resident staff.  I'm eager to get to know you, so if you see me around, don't be afraid to introduce yourself and strike up a conversation!


Corinne Conn

Resident Advisor of Munford 2nd Floor

Room: 232 Munford

Hi All! My name is Corinne April, but I just go by Corinne, and I am a global citizen! Literally, I have 3 passports but don’t tell the government! I just want to give you all a whopping welcome to the IRC.  You are seriously staying in the best place on grounds. I was born in Trinidad but have lived in Alexandria VA for pretty much my entire life. I am a Global Development and Public Health major (I'm also pre-med so if you have any questions about life, please stop by!) But I’m really at UVA to get as much of a well-rounded, perspective shaping education as possible, so please come talk to me about anything that makes you passionate. Personally, I’m into cooking, jui-jit-su, tennis, playing music, dancing, video games, and so much more. Come visit me on the 2nd floor of Munford for a cup of tea or just a good time-I’m sure we’ll find something to talk about ;)

Michael Schacher

Resident Advisor of Gwathmey 1st Floor

Room: Gwathmey 121

Hey everyone! My name is Michael and I am from Long Island, New York. I am a rising second year in the College majoring in both Music and Biology, and intend on going to veterinary school following UVA. I love playing almost any sport (top ones being basketball, ultimate Frisbee, badminton, soccer, and volleyball) and love playing my tenor saxophone. Going along with that, I am in the marching band, so everyone should go to the football games (if only to hear the marching band play!) Anyway, I plan on cooking a ton this semester, so feel free to check out the first floor Gwathmey kitchen to see if you can nab some free food. If you need me at all, want to watch a movie, play any sport, or eat some good food, stop by Gwathmey 121. I love meeting new people!
