Current Department Spotlight

Brandon Sousa '15


Brandon Sousa is currently a senior who is double majoring in Biological Sciences (B.S.) and Psychology (B.A). Brandon is also obtaining minors in Leadership, Sociology, and Chemistry. He is currently a second year Resident Advisor (RA) for first-year students and  serves as the Historian and Fundraising Chair for his fraternity, Theta Chi.  Throughout studying all of these topics, Brandon has been able to learn that human behavior is very dynamic, incorporating biological, sociological, and psychological aspects.  As a result, Brandon has developed a greater awareness for diversity within communities. This has contributed his success of relating to others within the college community.

Brandon has always been curious about human behavior and has recently decided to venture into the career of Student Affairs and Higher Education.  He plans to work with first-year college students in assisting them with their transition to college.  Currently, Brandon is working with graduate students to implement a mentoring program that matches undergraduate psychology students with graduate psychology students in hopes that they students can further explore the field of psychology.

Brandon is an active member of the Resident Advisor Board and Resident Advisor Training Committee. He plans to further his involvement with first-year students by becoming a URI 101 Mentor in the fall of 2014.  Brandon hopes to empower first-year students by motivating them to get involved on campus. He plans to encourage students to take advantage of the many opportunities and resources available to them on campus. 

Over the past four years, Brandon has continued to do well in his classes. He has been recognized for his efforts by making the dean’s list every single semester of his college career.    He is a huge advocate for personal development and is a member of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA).
