Richie’s college search was about more than just finding a school that offered his major. He knew he wanted to find a place he could call home for the next four years – both inside the classroom and out. Since arriving on campus, Richie has explored RWU’s student government, Rugby team, Inter Class Council and earned a spot as an Orientation Advisor. Already interested in Biology, he tacked on a second major in Chemistry and added a minor in Arabic to explore a language with some family ties. One of Richie’s most memorable experiences so far? An alternative spring break trip with RWU’s Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC) to El Salvador, where he shadowed social workers and helped out in a clinic that provides essential care and vaccinations.
