About Reginald
Hi everyone!

My name is Reginald Smith and I am in my first year of graduate studies classes here at WCU! I'm a masters candidate in the High Education Policy and Student Affairs program, which just started, here at the school.

I was highly involved in undergrad here: a brother in Sigma Phi Epsilon, a brother in Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity, and a brother in the Friar's Society as well as a leadership consultant for two years.

My favorite food is pizza, especially BBQ chicken pizza, and anything spicy! If it doesn't make you cry as you're eating it, was it really spicy?

You can find me usually walking to 7-11 to get the latest soft drinks or sitting down playing a video game after a long day of productivity.

I love to help in any way I can, so feel free to shoot me an email: rs816241@wcupa.edu.

My office is located in the Division of Student Affairs office on the 2nd floor of Sykes, Room 238.

My office hours this Fall semester are:
Monday - Thursday: 9am to 2pm

Have a great day!

About Charles
I have worked for the students of West Chester University for the past 25 years, the last few years as the Director of Student Leadership & Involvement. I am a proud Lynchburg College Hornet where I received both my bachelor and master degrees, but also feel like I am a WCU Ram in spirit after being here so long. Lynchburg provided great involvement opportunities for me and set me on the course towards higher education. I started my career as the Greek Affairs Coordinator for Longwood College (now University) in Virginia and then moved up here to WCU. I have had the privilege to serve both the Association of Fraternity Advisors as National President in 2000 and my fraternity affiliation, Beta Theta Pi, in a variety of roles culminating in serving as the General Secretary from 2006-2009. The student body at WCU is amazing and I encourage you to take advantage of Your Leadership University.

About Nicholas
Hello everyone! My name is N. Sam Pettinati; I go by Sam because my father goes by Nick, my first name. I’m currently an undergraduate Public Health Major with a Spanish minor. Professionally, I aspire to finish my undergraduate degree and continue on to a career in health services, hopefully on an administrative level. Academically, I am still deliberating on whether I will go through the MPH program, or just move forward in my professional career.

I’m an active member of our campus community: I’m a Leadership Consultant through the office of Student Leadership and Involvement, I’m a trip leader for the Alternative Break program, and I’m the web and technology chair of Phi Sigma Pi and the Friars’ Society. In my free time I enjoy volunteering, utilizing any opportunity that arises; I enjoy practicing coding and web development; I enjoy listening to hip hop, rap, R&B, and basically everything under the sun (yes country, yes metal).

I enjoy leadership training and have recently been selected to lead an Alternative Break this coming summer that focuses on community health education, internationally. The trip is available to students, and as the trip leader I decide membership, development, and implementation of program events. I also get to work side by side with community leaders, and stakeholders who will guide our team towards a better understanding of the health education process. If you' re interested or would like more information, you can contact me at np823346@wcupa.edu.
