Emily Casey – President



Class of 2018

Room 116

Washington, DC

IT Management & Arabic


(571) 594-7666

Hi ‘Cats! I’m Emily and I’m so excited to be your new President. As a native of our great country’s capital I’m just an east coast city girl, trying to find a place in this Midwest world. I was born and raised Fighting Irish so when not in class or losing years off my life watching Irish athletics, I can be found in my second home, the Mendoza cafe, attached to my computer, fueling my unhealthy coffee addiction, or trying to decode the gibberish I should understand by now known as Arabic homework. Conversation is my favorite form of procrastination so please feel free to reach out or stop and chat anytime. I look forward to continuing to build the Ryan Hall community and getting to know all of you. Ryan Go Bragh!

Class of 2018

Room 160

Overland Park, Kansas

Political Science & Film, Television, and Theatre




Hey team! Grace is the name and Ryan Hall Fall VP is the game. I hail from the sunflower state, specifically the bustling metropolis of Overland Park (a modest-sized suburb of Kansas City). I have never seen a tornado in person. I drink an unhealthy amount of coffee (median of probably 4.5 cups per day) and I love indulging in a healthy protein-packed meal (@FiveGuys @Chipotle @SDHCarvingStation). I’m majoring in Political Science and Film, Theatre, and Television (and that second major is for real this time) so if you ever want to talk Trump or 30 Rock, I’m your gal. The scar on my chin in the picture was acquired in a bike accident on spring break that may or may not have involved snapchat. Not pictured: fractured elbow. Anywho, get your yelling voices ready for some major pep rally action because we’re about to go OFF! I can’t wait to serve all of you wonderful women this upcoming semester! You know what they say – Go ‘Cats Go Irish

Vanessa Acosta – Vice President (Spring)

Room 157

Boston, Massachusetts

Psychology & Latino Studies


(978) 382-1992

Hey ladies! I’m Vanessa, and I’m beyond excited to be your VP in the spring! Until then, you can find me in the coolest quad in 1B (157). I love all things Ed Sheeran, food, and Netflix in bed. I’m currently a student intern in the President’s Office as well as the Institute for Latino Studies. Coffee is my bff, and like every proper Boston native, I love Dunkin’ Donuts an unhealthy amount. Feel free to stop by if you ever need help with Spanish homework, want to obsess over any kind of food, or just feel like chatting! I can’t wait to get to know you all! Ryan Go Bragh 🙂

Grace Seibert – Secretary

Class of 2019


Madison, WI

Neuroscience and Behavior (Pre-Med Track)


(608) 630-3366

Hi everyone! I am Grace and I am so excited to be your new secretary! Other than secretary, I am also the junior commissioner for the bro-sis commission, on the Ryan Hall Improvement Committee, and played on the Ryan Hall flag football, basketball, and dodgeball teams! Outside of Ryan, I am a member of Timmy Global Health and the American Medical Women’s Association. I hope to go to medical school and become an OB/GYN and basically be Meredith Grey. If I’m not in class, lab, or doing homework, you can probably find me watching Grey’s Anatomy or reading a novel while drinking tea and eating any combination of cheese and bread (cheese curds, cheesy bread, mozzarella sticks, cheese pizza, grilled cheese, etc).

Jenny Moore – Treasurer


Class of 2019

Room 216

Lake Villa, IL

Marketing & Psychology


(224) 545-0936

Hey Wildcats! I’m Jenny, and I am so excited to be your treasurer this year! Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, I’m a big fan of deep dish pizza (it’s better than New York, trust me) and my Chicago teams. I love playing any and all sports, and I hope to work in sports marketing after I graduate. This year, I’ll be interning with the marketing team of Notre Dame’s athletic department which I am super psyched about! I also enjoy traveling, reading, and baking (catch me at FJs on Tuesday nights!). If you ever want to talk sports, Notre Dame, or just chat, feel free to reach out or swing by 216 anytime. I am so looking forward to another great year in Ryan Hall and can’t wait to get to know all of you – Go ‘Cats Go Irish!
