HC: What made you choose to go William Paterson?

RR: I chose William Paterson because it was affordable and close to home.  I knew that as soon as I stepped on this campus, I would love everything about it.

HC: Thus far, what has been the hardest obstacle in college?

RR: The hardest obstacle in college thus far would have to be communicating with my advisor and finding internships.  I barely have time to actually sit with my advisor and talk about my schedule and my career path from here on out and see what internships I can get that are either close to school or not too far from home.

HC: You were recently hired as a Student Ambassador; how do you manage to keep up with everything you’re involved with and school work?

RR: It’s all about organization and time management, and if you have those skills you will be fine. So when I make my schedule not only for class but for my day to day life, I find and make time for club meetings, friends, and school work.

HC: Were you always involved in school?

HC: Where do you see yourself in the next five years?

RR: In the next five years, I see myself just graduating with my Masters degree and working for a huge retail company in New York.

HC: If you could have dinner with someone dead, fictional and alive, who would they be? Why?

RR: If I could have dinner with someone dead it would be Michael Jackson because he was such a great role model and everyone loved him for not only his music, but for being a caring person and really making a difference in people’s lives.

HC: If there was one thing that you could change about William Paterson, what would that be?

RR: There is honestly nothing that I would change about William Paterson.  It’s William Paterson for a reason.  The location, atmosphere, diverse student body, faculty, and staff make up such a great school to attend.

HC: What does being a Pioneer mean to you?

RR: Being a Pioneer to me means being a student at William Paterson University who is ready to make a difference in the world and being a leader for future pioneers, accomplishing many goals throughout your college career.

HC: When you graduate William Paterson, what impression do you want to leave behind?

RR: The impression that I want to leave behind when I graduate William Paterson would have to be that I was a hardworking student who achieved many goals as a student leader on campus throughout my college career.  I want to leave my mark so that in the future when I do decide to come back and visit, people can say “Hey!  I remember you!  You graduated from here!”
