Alumni, Emeriti, and Friends
Rie Rogers Mitchell came to the University of Utah as a sophomore after one year at Mills College in Oakland, CA. She selected the University because of its wide and varied curriculum, and her grandmother, who had received a teaching diploma from the University in the 1890s, spoke so highly of her experience there. Rie received a B.S. degree in social science and a M.S. degree in counseling/educational psychology at the College of Education.
