Trent Anderson

My name is Trent Anderson, and I’m a senior at URI with majors in Film/Media and Public Relations. Aside from working for the Harrington School, I’m also an Orientation Leader for first-year students and I’m heavily involved in the Center for Student Leadership Development. I hope to eventually work in Public Relations within the entertainment industry out in Los Angeles.

Why the Harrington School?
The Harrington School is one of the most rapidly developing schools at the University. There are so many friendly and helpful professionals who act as our guides, and there is a limitless supply of resources and networking opportunities here that set us up to succeed both during our undergraduate years and beyond.

Alyssa Botelho

Hi! My name is Alyssa Botelho and I’m from Fairhaven, MA. I’m currently a freshman double majoring in Film/Media and Management. In my free time, I love going to the beach, hitting the gym, watching Netflix, and making short films! Upon graduation, I plan to grow my wedding videography business and become your favorite film director in the industry.

Why the Harrington School?

In my college search, I had three things in mind. I needed a school that would fuel my passion, equip me with real-life skills, and provide me with the connections that will launch my career. The Harrington School does all of those things, and more. The faculty are skilled, the courses are engaging, and the students are super outgoing! The Harrington School was the perfect choice because it’s the school that will bring my dreams to fruition.

Brianna Creech

Hi! My name is Brianna Creech and I am from Thomaston, CT.  I am currently a sophomore double majoring in Film/Media and Public Relations. Besides being a Harrington Ranger, I am an honors student and member of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and an active member of Greek life.  When I’m not studying, I love to practice yoga, take hikes, and watch any and all types of films. When I graduate I would love to be a PR representative for a major production company or create the next original Netflix series.

Why the Harrington School?

I chose the Harrington School when I decided to go into film.  I’ve always loved stories and how filmmakers are able to recreate them on screen and URI is giving me the tools to be apart of that creation in the classroom. The faculty has also shown me so many different paths of film that i’m interested in and is preparing me to be apart of every single one of them.

Sara LiVecchi

My name is Sara LiVecchi and I’m from North Caldwell, New Jersey. I am pursuing a dual degree in Communication Studies and Writing and Rhetoric. This semester, I am beginning my junior year. On campus, aside from my position as a Harrington Ranger, I am the Student Director of Personnel for the Intramural Sports Program. I’m proud of the involvement I have on this campus. This past summer, I had the time of my life as an Orientation Leader. I’ve been a URI 101 Mentor, a Civic Engagement Leader, a TA, and a peer leader for the Women’s Center. When I’m not working in Mackal or out on the North Rec Fields, I’m probably in the yoga studio in Fascitelli or on my couch watching Netflix (currently House of Cards!).

Why the Harrington School?

I’ve always known that I have a passion for writing. I felt the courage to pursue my passion when I found URI’s Harrington School during my college search. The Writing and Rhetoric major is unique as it’s both creative and technical. After adding on the Communication Studies major to my academic repertoire, I began to diversify my skillset even further. I love the Harrington School because it’s given me the tools to more successfully harness my innate creativity.

Jessica Pace  

Hi there! My name is Jessica Pace and I’m from Long Island, New York. I am a senior pursuing a double major in Journalism and Communication Studies. As well as being a returning Ranger, I’ve interned with WJAR NBC10 in Providence and News 12 Long Island two summers in a row. On campus, I’m also involved in Greek Life as well as being Video Editor/Producer for URI’s 5 Cent Cigar News. If you see me on campus, I’m probably reporting on the latest news with Dunkin coffee in hand. I have a passion for telling people stories that are exciting and intriguing. My plans for the future is to bring you a familiar and friendly face to the screen- as a dedicated reporter.

Why the Harrington School?

As a student, I am so lucky for the opportunities the Harrington School has brought me. Every single Harrington School class I have taken has honed my skills for my dream career. The amenities allow students to get true hands on experience, which is extremely valuable while exploring your own major and solidifying one’s path. At the Harrington School, students not only learn, they practice and do what is taught. I feel myself growing professionally with every passing semester, and most definitely feel prepared to dive into my career.

Kate Rogerson

Hi! My name is Kate Rogerson, and I am from Weymouth, Massachusetts with a double major in Journalism and Public Relations. As well as being a Ranger, I am involved in Greek life on campus, write for the school paper and play intramural sports. Three things I love the most are Patriots football, country music, and spending time at the beach. I hope to have a career in sports media.

Why the Harrington School?

I chose URI because the Harrington School offered not only a variety of classes and integration of majors, but also the fact that as soon as you are a freshman you can jump right in. The Harrington School of Communication and Media provides access to many different outside resources and alumni mentors to get your dream job off on the right foot.


The first class of Harrington Rangers for the 2012 – 2013 year provided essential support for the very successful Ignite: Harrington event on September 27.They were involved in helping plan and execute the marketing campaign, including distributing flyers, speaking to classes, sending emails, and posting promotional information on social media, which resulted in a standing-room only audience. In addition, they all assisted during the event from working the entrance, to helping manage the crowd, to the clean-up after the event. Also,Colby Blanchet produced a promotional video, and Colby,Ashley Kuhar,and Julianna Kurucz introduced the speakers, one of whom is Ranger Kari Lukovics.

In addition to Ignite: Harrington, the Harrington Rangers were also present at the launching of the HUB@LLRC with senator Jack Reed.

The Rangers play an important and vital role in Harrington School events.
