ALEX BALL

Sophomore business management major from Romulus, Michigan

Alex says he knew where he was going to college after he attended a Warrior Friday and “saw a close-knit campus community made of amazing people who seemed to have a real pride for RC.” He didn’t waste any time getting plugged in once he enrolled. Alex is a member of Delta Nu, a resident adviser, a peer adviser for New Student Orientation and a junior mentor for RC’s junior scholars program. He’s also taken advantage of opportunities presented through campus ministry events such as Shack-a-thon, helping out at the community gardens of the Micah 6 community in Pontiac. “I want to be an inner city farmer. Most people in heavily urbanized areas don’t have the same availability to fresh food as others do. I want to help fix that problem,” Alex said. He also is a student assistant coach for the men’s varsity basketball program and recipient of the Craig Meyer Memorial Scholarship.
