4th Main Resident Advisor, jtl244
Hey squidos :-) My name is Jason Ling, and I’m a junior in the School of Hotel Administration with minors in Real Estate and Music. I’m originally from Duluth, Georgia but just spent a fantastic summer in Denver, Colorado and will be in Charlotte, NC next summer for work. This is my second year as an RA for Risley and my third year as a resident. On campus, I’m highly involved with music at Cornell, as the current general manager and former tour manager for the Cornell University Glee Club and a member of the Hangovers, its acapella subset. Furthermore, I’ve held positions in multiple professional organizations, including the President Emeritus of The Wardrobe, a board member on the Cornell Diversity & Inclusion Business Advisory Council, a mentor for Cornell Real Estate Club (CREC), a project manager of CREC Consulting, and a teaching assistant for HADM 1740/2740: Business Computing and HADM 4770: Advanced Business Modeling. After school, I want to work in impact investing through ESG focused Real Estate, promoting sustainable and conscious practices within mixed-use developments that expand affordable housing and hedge against gentrification. I’m connected to a number of professional/business organizations and vocal groups- so if you’ve got any interest in any of these activities, let me know and I can do my best to help you get involved. Beyond music and my professional aspirations, some of my other interests include sustainability, thrifting, hiking, and trying new restaurants around town. I’m so excited to see how this vibrant will continue growing this year. Please don’t hesitate to reach out, be it for a question/concern, a quick hello, or anything else!
