Cam Brown - Deputy College Head, Logan Hall
Before university Cam completed an apprenticeship as an Electrical and Instrumentation technician but in 2013 decided to try something new and came to Monash and MRS.
Suffice to say, he thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as after living in South East Flats he became a residential advisor there the following year and then RSA at Briggs Hall in mid 2015.
Growing up in the beautiful, but tiny, rural Victoria township of Willow Grove (according to Wikipedia Logan Hall has more residents) he is a country boy at heart but currently prefers to live in a slightly more populated area. He dislikes coffee and chocolate, but please don’t hold this against him.
During the day Cam works for the University as a Functions and Events officer.
