Casey Butrico '16
I am entering my sophomore year at Gettysburg College and plan to pursue a major in Biology. I am involved in the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, I volunteer as a tutor at a local elementary school, and I am the Co-Leader of the Students for Reproductive Rights group on campus. Volunteering at a local soup kitchen, hosting perspective students, and giving tours on campus are a few of the ways I remain busy at Gettysburg. I cannot wait to be one of the first students to greet the class of 2017 as an Orientation Leader this August!

Taylor Bury '16
Hi, I’m Taylor! I’m a Biology major from York, PA, and part of the class of 2016. I’m hoping to go into Naturopathic Medicine when I graduate, but before that I’d like to study abroad in Australia. Most of the time you’ll see me walking to and from the Science Center, but when you don’t I’ll either be at the gym, attending Student Senate meetings, or playing my guitar at an Open Mic Night in the Junction. I can’t wait to meet all of you, and help make your orientation experience fantastic!

Gettysburg College is a great place to be, and I'm very excited to work with all of my incoming First Year students. Orientation week will be a blast, and this year Paul Hall will be winning Field Day!
Anna Malone '16
Hi! I am an RA on Paul 2. I'm from Western New York (north of Buffalo) and am a sophomore Religious Studies and Philosophy double major with a minor in Music (I play piano). When I'm not studying, though, I like to do all sorts of fun things! I sing in the Concert Choir and am on the Leadership Team for DiscipleMakers Christian Fellowship. I spend as much time as possible hanging out with friends (preferably on Stine Lake) and love going to swing dances. I am particularly fond of Disney Princesses, superheroes, cuddly animals, and Harry Potter. Spring is probably my favorite season, but I do love a good snowfall in the winter. I am super excited to be an RA this year and I can't wait to meet everyone! Enjoy the rest of your summer and I will see you in August!
