Rock Solid Regent – Marian del Barrio

11/07/2016 10:37 am

Maria Del BarrioOur ROCK SOLID REGENT for the week is Marian del Barrio. Marian is a freshman mathematics major. She was nominated by Dr. Deepshikha Shukla, Assistant Professor of Physics. She is from Madrid, Spain and will be studying at RU for one year.

Dr. Shukla shared that Marian is a perfect representation of an exemplary student. As an international student, not only has she adjusted to our system of education seamlessly, she also continues to excel in her coursework. She is currently one of the top students in her Math and Physics courses. This is not an easy task taking into account the pressure and strain of adjusting to cultural differences. Even though this is her first semester at RU, her peers sing praises of her demeanor and her willingness to help.

Marian plays basketball and is a member of the Robotics Club, Math Club and the Spanish Club. She has also served as a volunteer for a STEM outreach program at the Washington Park Community Center. Marian enjoys studying at RU because faculty, students and staff members are always willing to help you with any issues. At the end of the academic year Marian will return to Spain to continue her studies in Physics and Math. She is a great ambassador for RU and definitely a ROCK SOLID REGENT!
