Former SROP scholar feels at home at the University of Iowa

Chad Rhym grew up running through the hallways of the psychology building at the University of Georgia, where his mother is associate dean of arts and sciences.

"When I was 6 or 7, I would meet deans and I didn't know they were deans. I remember seeing those deans riding away on motorcycles," Rhym says. "I also remember my mom going through the tenure track process when I was 14 or 15."

Given his exposure to higher education from a young age, it's no surprise that Rhym is pursuing his doctorate in sociology. The native of Athens, Ga., chose to pursue his graduate studies at the University of Iowa after a spending a successful summer on the Iowa City campus as part of the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) in 2018.
