I Found My Niche at the University of Rhode Island
Student Name: Lucas DeWitt
School: University of Rhode Island
Major: College Student Personnel
“My name is Lucas DeWitt (he/him), and I’m an incoming grad student at the University of Rhode Island. At URI, I’ll be pursuing an M.S. in College Student Personnel, with the goal of working at a university supporting college students. Additionally, my Grad Assistantship is in the Office of Student Involvement, where I oversee the @uri_sea office and help student organizations plan events to connect with our fellow Rams🐏💙
Coming from the University of Iowa, finding a school away from the Midwest was a big draw. I fell in love with the beauty and quirkiness that the state of Rhode Island and the URI campus offers. I also did my entire grad search, application, and interviews from my small Iowa City apartment which made the process of finding the right program stressful at times. The faculty and my now supervisor built a community that is supportive, collaborative, and challenges me to grow. I’m happy I followed my gut.” – @lucas_dewitt
