#uga19 graduating senior Kyle Arnett has been an RA in Russell Hall, Creswell Hall and University Village. He says those experiences taught him social skills that he didn’t know he needed as well as how to comfortably handle life-threatening situations. We wish Kyle well on his next adventure as a software engineer at the Savannah River Site and with his pursuit of a post-graduate degree online through Georgia Tech. Good luck, Kyle, and GO DAWGS.
