Welcome!

Mr. David Rachau

Academic Adviser

HRIM and RPTM

Here's a little bit about me:

I've been an Instructor/Academic Adviser in the College of Health and Human Development (HHD) at the University Park campus since February, 1995. My main mission is advising undergraduate students who are pursuing their goals in either Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management (HRIM) or in Recreation, Park, and Tourism Management (RPTM).

Prior to working at Penn State, I was Director of The Learning Resource Center at Saint Francis University of PA.

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Penn State University in May 1986, graduating with Highest Distinction from the Schreyer Honors College. In August 1990, I earned my Master of Education degree in Counselor Education, Student Personnel option, also from Penn State University.

How to reach me, if you want to talk about HRIM or RPTM:

Please call 865-2156 on weekdays between 8:00 and 5:00 to have an assistant help you with my schedule. Thanks!
