Seim Hall is where the Seim Squad resides! Members of the Seim Squad get to know their neighbors, make memories that will last a lifetime, and make the most out of their college experience. The Resident Assistants (RAs) and Hall Director look forward to helping residents create connections in their suites, within their houses, and to NDSU as a whole. The Seim Squad can look forward to the End of the Year Bash in the spring, which is when all of the High Rise buildings come together for an afternoon of inflatable obstacle courses, music, and loads of fun!

Hi there! My name is Logan Staton, and I am the Hall Director for Seim Hall! I was born and raised in Virginia, and the East Coast holds a special place in my heart. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Communication Studies at Bridgewater College (a small, private liberal arts school in Virginia), and more recently, I earned my master’s degree in College Student Development at Appalachian State University, located in the scenic mountains of North Carolina. I am passionate about Dollar Tree (which was founded in VA), stationary, and homemade pimento cheese.
I love working as a Hall Director because I get the privilege of working with students as they adjust to college life. Students typically experience lots of change once they get to college, and I enjoy working with students as they learn how to thrive and succeed during their college career.
My biggest piece of advice to students is for them to explore their passions and get connected to those passions! If you enjoy athletics, you could join an intramural team or attend a sporting event. If you enjoy planning events and gatherings with friends, considering running for a hall government position, which would allow you to do these things for the whole hall! Not sure of ways to get involved on campus? Chat with myself or your RA, and we will happily get you connected with various clubs and organizations on campus.
Three cheers for making this the best year yet- GO BISON!!

Seim Hall (originally the West High Rise) was built in 1972 as the third in a series of nine-story high rise buildings. It housed 293 male and female students in two-story subdivisions alternating between seventy men and seventy women. The West High Rise was renamed Seim Hall in 1984 to honor Norm Seim, NDSU's Housing Director for twenty-two years.
Seim was originally from Pelican Rapids, Minnesota. He entered Moorhead State College in 1941 and earned a two-year teaching degree. Seim enlisted in the U. S. Army after the 1941-42 school year. He served for three years in the Southwest Pacific where he earned a commission as Second Lieutenant. In 1946, Seim enrolled at NDAC and graduated in the winter of 1949-50 with a degree in industrial engineering. In 1962, he became Director of Housing at NDSU. He retired in 1984 after twenty-two years of service to NDSU (It's Happening at State, June 27, 1984, p. 7-8).
