Boniface East Hall, located in the 1959 east wing of the Benedictine Center, serves as a traditional residence hall for women. It is named after Benedictine Sister Boniface Timmons, who arrived in Bismarck in 1892 to be an administrator at CHI St. Alexius Health. She later became an administrator at CHI St. Alexius nursing school when it opened in 1915.

The former Boniface Hall on the CHI St. Alexius campus was the residence for nursing school residents and housed the first Mary College students. As a connecting link to this heritage, "south campus residence hall" was designated Boniface Hall in 2000 when the university purchased Annunciation Priory, now named the Benedictine Center for Servant Leadership.

I was born and raised outside of Mandan on a small farm. I met and married my husband, Thomas, while we both lived in Atchison, KS. We have a daughter and enjoy living and working at the University of Mary. Meeting and interacting with students is a source of inspiring energy for me. I love working on the residences life team. I love the university’s focus on excellence, community, and pursuit of Christ.
