Meet John Merryfield, UA’s Newest Resident Manager!

My name is John Merryfield, I am the new resident manager assigned to our undergraduate tenants staying at University Apartments this year. This is my second year staying in Eagle Heights after moving here from Morehouse College in Atlanta Georgia. I am an East Asian History Ph.D. student specializing in post-war Japan.

During my free time I enjoy watching anime and playing video games and hockey. Other than sharing dinner with friends here at Eagle Heights, my favorite part of living here is running on the picnic point trail to clear my head. I am looking forward to being a resource for our residents in transition and building a warm and hospitable community with you.
