    Meet the RD | Josh Swem

    "I became an RD for the purpose of working closely with college students. I enjoy spending one-on-one time with my staff and students in an effort to help them develop into well-rounded individuals who are prepared to meet the challenges of college. I appreciate the way my residents challenge my own conceptions. They can be very inquisitive, and that is when learning takes place on both ends."

    Community Outreach

    This year Bowdle/O’Bannon has sponsored the Ooltewah Middle School Library. Ooltewah is a Title I school with little funding for beautification and book purchases. We have painted several walls, assisted with landscaping, and helped with minor repairs in the classrooms. Further, we have raised $500 for their library to purchase books.
