Meet Your Hall Staff
Hello! My name is Shawn Patrick and I am the Residence Director of Frear Hall. I’m originally from Wisconsin, but have fully embraced Hawai’I as my new home. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and my master’s degree in Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education at Ball State University in Indiana.
Outside of work, I love to hike, relax on the beach, run, SCUBA dive, and spend time with friends. I hope that each resident takes full advantage of all that the University of Hawai’i at Manoa has to offer. If at any time you have questions, concerns, or just want to say hello, please stop by my office located on the first floor. Once again I want to welcome you to UHM and Frear Hall!

Derrick De Soto
Assistant Residence Director
Aloha. I'm Derrick De Soto. I was born and raised in Honolulu. I am entering my final year in UH's Bachelor in Nursing (BSN) program. My goal is to become a Nurse Practitioner in either Pediatrics or Community/Mental Health. I also hold other educational degrees (MA-Sociology & BA-Liberal Studies-Criminology) attained from UH-Manoa. I have previous work experience both as a Hall Director and Resident Advisor in the Apartments + Residential Life departments within UH-Student Housing; however, this will be my first year in the Assistant Residence Director position. I welcome conversation in regards to the residential experience, school, career planning, etc. During downtime, I enjoy working out at the gym, hanging out at Starbucks, and watching TV (i.e. 'Breaking Bad', 'Dexter'). I anticipate serving as a resource to our residents and their families/friends, along with other university personnel. Frear Hall is committed to fostering an environment conducive to learning, overall development, and fun. My office is located behind the Frear Hall Community Desk. I encourage you to stop by if you'd like to chat or have any concerns/questions.
