Eric Weber, psychology major, renaissance minor, 3.47 GPA
Weber is from Eau Claire, Wis. He is the president of Residence Hall Association and a member of the Undergraduate Student Government. Weber is also a member of the National Residence Hall Honorary, Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honorary, Sigma Chi Fraternity and Psi Chi, a psychology honor society. He was a Tommie ambassador, an Ireland Hall council member, and a volunteer for the ‘Lavin Burger’ program in Ireland Hall.
Weber earned dean’s list honors five times and was awarded a bronze pin for contributions to the university’s residence hall experience.
St. Thomas has become a “second home” to Weber and he said living in and being a Resident Adviser in Ireland Hall has been his favorite college experience.
“Ireland Hall is such a fun unique place with really fun, interesting people,” Weber said. “In my time in Ireland Hall, I really learned a lot about myself, but also made relationships that have lasted throughout my time as a Tommie.”
Weber said he’s not the first one in his family to be nominated for the Tommie Award. His brother, Brian, was also nominated for the award when he was a senior.
After graduation, Weber plans to work in the Twin Cities and eventually attend graduate school to pursue a degree in industrial/organizational psychology.
