Meet the Residence Life Staff

Jamestown Community College’s Residence Life staff create a warm, positive community in the residence halls. The Residence Life director works with residence directors and student resident assistants to provide a supportive environment and fun programming. You can go to them with any ideas, questions, or concerns.

Tyler Silagyi, Director of Residence Life

My name is Tyler Silagyi, and I am the director of Residence Life. I grew up in the area my whole life and came to JCC after graduating high school. Over the course of three years at JCC, I worked in Residence Life as a resident assistant and received two associate degrees. After JCC, I transferred to Fredonia and completed my bachelor's in business management. Currently, I am working toward my master's in higher education administration. My passion to help those around me and to see others succeed is what fuels me to be the very best residence director that I can be.

Joachim Ogodi, Residence Director

Hey there, I’m Joachim Ogodi and I’m the residence director for Hillside Suites North. I was born in Germany to a Nigerian mother and Congolese father. I came to the US when I was seven and have been raised my entire life to value the transformative power of education. I’ve worked in very diverse educational environments from charter schools, to non-profit organizations, to colleges and universities, and I hope to bring all my experiences to this position. I consider music and education to be my primary passions and hope to do my best to expand access to both through my work at Jamestown Community College.
