As the first person in her family to attend college, Niimo knew that giant lecture halls and anonymous campus life weren’t for her. An Open House visit to RWU showed her how the University could help her unlock her potential, and today, Niimo is one of the first faces to welcome new students to campus as an Orientation Advisor. She’s also on the executive board of the Multicultural Student Union, and is involved with Interclass Council, the Campus Entertainment Network and the Hollerin’ Hawks. Niimo even finds time to volunteer as a mentor to younger students through College Crusade Rhode Island. Niimo is setting a positive example—for her younger siblings and for students around the state. What will you do?
