There is a new face at Briar Cliff this year who is running campus activities and coordinating Noonan Hall, but he is not an unfamiliar person to the university.

Kyle Wonders, a 2007 BCU grad, says he has been waiting for a position to open here on campus for quite some time. 

“I love this school and still have a lot of friends in the Siouxland area,” says Wonders. He was also a part of the first varsity football team.

While at BCU Wonders participated in football, track and was a RA for two of his years on campus. He then graduated with his degree in history and political science. He started his masters in political science but decided to change to something else. 

“I am planning on finishing my masters here at BCU,” says Wonders. “My goal is to stay in higher education and keep moving up. It’s an area that I really love and I see no reason to quit something that you love.” 

Since he graduated, he has been in a masters school for one year, worked as a hall director at Grandview for a year and then went to Iowa Western Community College to be a residence life coordinator for two years. 

Wonders will be in charge of the residential life in Noonan Hall, bringing in entertainment to campus and help in the planning of homecoming. 

“A lot of the stuff for homecoming was done when I came in,” says Wonders, “but things are going extremely well. I’m still trying to figure out everything they already have planned for this year and until that gets ironed out it is hard to say what will be new this year.” 

Wonders plans on waiting until next fall to start the masters program. For now, Wonders aims to work for a while and settle in to his role as hall director.

“Being back on campus is almost the same as when I was here [five years ago],” says Wonders, “but it is completely different at the same time. I love the atmosphere here, between the beautiful campus and the great professors, it is just great to be back and to be apart of BCU again.”
