Why did you choose Siena College?

I chose Siena because the moment I stepped on campus it just felt right. The environment here is that of a warm and welcoming community, the students all know one another and the professors know your name.

Why Marketing?

I chose Marketing as my major because with the help of my adviser, I discovered my true passion. At Siena your academic advisers assist you with everything from what classes to take next semester to deciding which major fits your best.

What has been your most meaningful experience at Siena?

My most meaningful experience at Siena has been the opportunity to give tours for the Admissions Office because it gives me the chance to witness the next freshman class fall in love with campus just as I did only a few years ago.

What was your favorite marketing course and why?

My favorite class has definitely been my Introduction to Marketing Class with Professor Scardillo. He is such an easy-going professor that it didn’t even feel like class but more of a conversation about marketing. Most of your classes at Siena will be an interactive conversation instead of sitting back and listening to a lecture for 3 hours. This allows professors to truly get to know their students.

What are your plans for the future?

I plan on graduating from Siena in 2018 and I working for Apple in marketing for their retail stores, either in California or traveling globally opening new locations. If not Apple, definitely another tech company since that is the particular area i’m most interested in.
