More About

Mitchell received his B.A. in political science from the University of Mississippi in 2018, and he is from Senatobia, MS.  While at Ole Miss, he was involved with his academic department as President of the Pi Sigma Alpha chapter.  In addition, he contributed for a new undergraduate magazine, the Mississippi Political Review.  As he finished his time at the University, he completed a senior thesis that compared Republican Senate candidates’ timing of campaign announcement to their political experience, titled “Exploring Announcement Dynamics in Select Republican Primaries.”  He’s excited about the University of Georgia, new people, and new places.

While he’s excited about the study of politics, he also treasures traveling to new places while trying new food and meeting new people.  Colorado, Maine, and Portugal are some of his favorite places.  He enjoys hiking, fishing, kayaking, and wakeboarding—anything in the great outdoors—as well as playing tennis and volleyball.  If he’s not out exploring, he’s tasting new coffees and reading dystopian fiction, theology, or John Grisham books.
