Ryleigh Waiter Profile


Hi everyone! My name is Ryleigh Waiters, and I am delighted to serve the Lancer Nation as Director of Student Life. A recent University of South Carolina- Columbia graduate as of May 2020, I am excited to remain heavily connected with UofSC, while also serving the area in which I was born and raised. I graduated with leadership distinction with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and a minor in psychology. My avid involvement in visitor affairs during my time in college really blossomed a love for higher education and working with student populations. In spare time, I enjoy yoga, time with loved ones, and bonding  with my four pound pup, Winslow.
