Haley Davis traveled a meandering path from her original childhood home in Chicago to her new home in Northeast Texas. She has lived in six states, and she's happy that her wanderlust led her to Texas. As the assistant director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at A&M-Commerce, she enjoys helping students make the most of their college experience through service and leadership opportunities.
How can I help you?
Considering joining a fraternity or sorority? My job is to offer support and advising for fraternity and sorority members on campus. Our mission at Fraternity and Sorority Life is to provide high-quality student development programming that contributes to the academic mission of the university by facilitating opportunities for scholarly success, community service, campus leadership, and fraternal friendships in a safe, inclusive and nurturing environment. I make it my personal mission to go above and beyond that each and every day.
A Conversation with Haley
What would you tell a student who is thinking about attending A&M-Commerce?
There is so much to see and learn at A&M-Commerce! Take advantage of all the opportunities that are presented to you. Get involved. Meet people. Step outside your comfort zone. I promise; it will all be worth it!
What do you like most about your role here at A&M-Commerce?
I really enjoy the relationships I have built with students. This opportunity to be a part of their journey through life and leadership is so much fun! Each day is different from the next, and I love continuing to learn more about our community.
You mentioned that you have lived in six states. Tell us about that journey!
I was born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. When I was eight, my family moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming. Four years later, our next stop was Des Moines, Iowa. Eleven months after that, we moved to Providence, Rhode Island, then back to Illinois where most of my family resides today. I completed high school there and attended college at Drake University in Des Moines. After graduation, I worked at Iowa State University in the Office of Admissions. My journey to Texas was kick-started by the desire for change. I love traveling and seeing new areas of the country and the world.
Tell us about your family.
Family is one of the most important things to me. Because we were such nomads when I was growing up, my immediate family is very close! My mother, Stephanie, works in healthcare, and my father, Rodell Sr., works in athletics. I have two brothers, Kevon Sr., and Rodell Jr., two nephews and a niece. I also have a very large extended family. My maternal grandmother has eight siblings, and my paternal grandmother has seven, so I have many aunts, uncles and cousins all across the country. We do our best to stay as connected as possible.
