Hi! I'm Garrett Kost and I am excited to be one of your Orientation Leaders this year at Gettysburg College! After already spending one year here at Gettysburg, I caught on quick to the things to do here in town and around campus. I was showed the opportunities to excel and took them! Now I can't wait to pass them on to all of you. As a History major, I usually spend all my time in Weidensall Hall or McKnight Hall for German studies. I am also a minor with Civil War Era Studies department and have worked closely with the Civil War Institute in the past. I have had the opportunity to intern with the Gettysburg National Military Park through the Institute and I grew immensely in my time there. In my spare time you'll probably see me around the battlefield on a run, in the 4th floor of the Library, or at the Jaeger Center. I play club Rugby and hope to help the team on to a great season. Living at the Appleford Inn (Civil War House) I'll be in a living environment that also loves history! Finally, one of the most important things about me is that I am in Army ROTC and can easily say that that is the single most greatest program that has changed my life. When I get to meet you all, I'll gladly explain these opportunities and others when you get to Gettysburg!
Lilianna Mischke is a Sophomore Biology major from Baltimore, Maryland. She is currently taking courses for the pre-veterinary track and is also planning on minoring in Philosophy. She is constantly looking for more opportunities to get involved on campus, but, currently, she is the Volunteer and Activities Coordinator for the Pre-Veterinary Club and a member of GECO and Biosphere and also loves volunteering at the Painted Turtle Farm. In her free time, she's probably running through the battlefields, reading, or soaking in some sunshine and fresh air; walking around town with her friends and finding good places to eat is also a big go-to. She's super stoked for her first year working with the Office of Residential and First-Year Programs and can't wait to meet the class of 2022!

A senior mathematics and psychology double major, Bailey is excited to be back in Huber Hall to serve as the Residence Coordinator for his third year on RFYP staff. Bailey grew up mostly in South Carolina, but has lived in Hummelstown, Pennsylvania since beginning high school. When he is not serving Huber Hall, he is working as a Peer Learning Associate for Abstract Mathematics I (the best course at Gettysburg), conducting research in the Psychology department, serving as co-chair of the Honor Commission, explaining to people that his name shows up as "Jason B. Heath" on emails because he goes by his middle name, or struggling with math homework/research. You can usually find him listening to Imagine Dragons with his trusty, big, blue headphones. Bailey can't wait to welcome our newest community members to Gettysburg College and work with/get to know them this year!
