Dimitris (Dimitri) Angelis
Graduate Assistant
He/Him/His

Dimitri started at West Chester University as an undergraduate student in 2018 after a few years of community college without any idea of what he wanted to do. With the help of his advisors and professors, he realized he wanted to go into the field of student affairs to help students like himself find their way and navigate the college experience. Dimitri is excited to work with first-year students and orientation leaders through his graduate assistantship in the Office of New Student Programs and is excited to learn more about the field as he starts in the Higher Education Policy and Student Affairs master’s program this semester.
