Involvement while at Siena: SAAC, Football, Men of Distinction, Meaning of Color (unity of Us)
Current Position: Chase Bank Accountant Specialist
Why you chose Siena: “The size of the campus and intimate feel when on it. The class size was great and the potential success on the football team”
Words of wisdom to future/current students: “The city of Adrian does not speak for the campus. Siena Height’s campus has so many things to do. As a student, you must allow yourself to find new opportunities or clubs outside of your initial reasoning for attending SHU. You have to go find it or sometimes it finds you as you walk through the UC. Be open to hearing about new things from upperclassmen. Also remember that it is and will forever be SHU versus EVERYBODY!”
