Meet the RA’s: West Village RA’s Delanie Dugan and Deja Outten

Welcome to the third post in our series “Meet the RA’s”! This series consists of posts that will help you get to know more about some of the RA’s that help make the residence halls great. This post will be about West Village RA’s Delanie Dugan and Deja Outten!

Delanie Dugan

Where are you from?

Delanie (D): Lancaster, PA

What is your major?

D: Art with a concentration in Interactive and Graphic Design and a minor in Graphic Communication Technology

What is one fun fact about yourself?

D: My favorite animal is a goat and I hope to have a pet goat one day and name him “Vincent Van Goat”.

What is your favorite hobby/pastime?

D: Buying too many houseplants and then hoping I can keep them all alive.

Who do you see as a role model?

D: I don’t have one specific person, but I try to always learn something from others – whether it be a professor, friend, co-worker,  or fellow RA. Anyone you get the chance to talk to and get to know you always have the opportunity to learn something from.

What advice do you have for new Marauders?

D: Don’t be afraid to get involved with clubs, events, and organizations. Even with an online environment, MU is still having many virtual and socially distanced in-person events. It may be tempting to go home for the weekend or just stay in your room and binge watch Netflix, but try your best to get to know others and enjoy campus life while still keeping yourself and others safe and following the safety guidelines. These guidelines include wearing a mask and socially distancing.

What are you looking forward to most as an RA this year?

D: Being on campus again and getting to meet the residents on my floor and in West Village A.

What do you plan to do after graduating from Millersville?

D: The big dream: Move to a bustling, bright city and become a graphic designer at a Fortune 500 company and work my way up from there.

Deja Outten

Where are you from?

Deja (D): Downingtown, PA

What is your major?

D: Social Work

Who do you see as a role model?

D: My best friend Jimmeaha is my role model because she is unapologetically herself and she taught me to see my own worth.

What advice do you have for new Marauders?

D: Use your planner! A planner will keep you on track and up to date with assignments!

What are you looking forward to most as an RA this year?
