Rita attended Ball State University where she received her Bachelor's Degree in Journalism Education with a minor in Leadership Studies. At Ball State, Rita was an RA in the honors community for two years and loved every minute connecting with residents, and seeing them make the most of their college experience. While at Ball State, Rita was very involved on campus. She was a member Epsilon Sigma Alpha service sorority, NRHH, served as an RA class mentor, and sat on the Student Staff Advisory Council. Rita also worked as a Summer Assistant where she worked with conferences and orientation groups visiting campus.

In her spare time, Rita loves to be active and try new adventures. Her favorite new activity is utilizing VSU’s ropes course and zip line. She also loves watching Netflix, going to movies and just hanging out with friends. Rita is an avid Mexican food fanatic and can point you towards all the great places in town.

Please feel free to stop by her office in Reade Hall and chat! Visitors are welcome anytime.

Hannah took a year break from the Housing department by working as a Graduate Assistant for the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences during her first year.

After graduation in spring 2015, Hannah will adventure away from Valdosta in pursuit of her PhD with hopes of becoming a University professor.
