Tour Guides - Russell


Name: Russell

Major(s): Secondary Education, History

Minor(s): Leadership Studies

Graduation Year: 2013

Hometown and State: Park Ridge, New Jersey

Two Words of Advice: Live (your) life!

My Personal Motto: “First impressions, lasting impressions!”

URI is Unique Because: of the Leadership Minor and all of it’s different clubs/organizations it offers

My Goal: graduate with a 3.7 or higher

My Favorite Food on Campus: the make-your-own panini’s at Butterfield

My Best URI Moment (so far): receiving my letter of acceptance to the school // Leadership Institute

My Biggest Surprise at URI: Going to a small high school, I thought that URI would be so big you would never “run into anyone” you knew, but I see so many people around campus each day.

Favorite Place on Campus (and why): the quad (always run into people, and a great place to just sit back and relax)

On the Weekends I: take a break from it all, sleep in, and hang out with friends

My Favorite Class (and why): EDC 312, because I was able to actually go out into the field and observe a middle school class

I Selected URI Because: The campus is beautiful , and the school’s proximity to the waterfront.

I Am Involved In: URI 101 Mentoring, Phi Eta Sigma President, SMILE Mentoring, Leadership Institute, URI Sailing Team, Leadership Ambassador, TOUR GUIDING! :)
