The town of Somers is so far north in Connecticut, it could almost be considered a suburb of Springfield, Massachusetts, which is less than 10 miles away. Despite a lot of collegiate options in Massachusetts, and several more throughout Connecticut, Cullen Roberts set his sights on Western Connecticut State University. "Cost and location were major influences," Roberts says. "Also, I was able to play lacrosse while getting a quality education."

Roberts says he always had an interest in psychology and "after taking an industrial organizational course, I explored career opportunities because I could see myself within that field of work." 

Once on campus, Roberts made some important connections. "Many of my professors were large influences on me, as well as my lacrosse coach, Ryan Cavanagh, who pushed me day in and day out. Adjunct Instructor Dr. David Rentler was my professor for industrial psychology and not only did he teach me about industrial organizational psychology, but he also gave me valuable information on what I needed for a future career."

Asked what he will remember most about his Western experience, Roberts says, "Being the first team in men's lacrosse history to defeat Eastern during my senior year."

After graduation, Roberts plans to pursue a master's degree and doctorate in industrial organizational psychology.

Roberts' advice to new students entering WCSU is: "Stay in touch with the Career Services Office because their services are not only underused, but also extremely beneficial."
