Hope Chitwood ’11, B.S. in Business Administration: Management
“I am so thankful I participated in campus activities. I was RSU’s first ever homecoming queen! I was in Alpha Sigma Alpha and the Honors Program, volunteered at a local elementary school, and worked in Health Sciences Department. I don’t take it for granted that RSU provided me with the opportunity to get involved and grow with the campus and community. I’m thankful for my experience and I would do it all over again.”
