Mercedes BoykinMercedes Boykin from Belvidere, Illinois is our ROCK SOLID REGENT for the week!

Mercedes is a senior with a double major in sociology and psychology. Prior to attending RU, she was a student a Rock Valley College. Mercedes was nominated by Sanger De Vine, Residence Hall Director. Sanger shares that she is an exemplar student leader. In addition to serving as a resident assistant she also works two part-time off campus jobs while keeping a laser focus on her academic progress. Mercedes enjoys the environment and strong community that RU offers.

She appreciates that her professors know her as a person. She feels like that the student and professor connection creates a great learning environment. She is also thankful that she has been able to make lifelong relationships at RU that probably might not happen at a larger institution. After graduation she would like to continue her education and is currently applying for graduate school.

Congratulations Mercedes on being a ROCK SOLID REGENT!
