I am a recent graduate of the Warner School here at University of Rochester. My undergraduate degree is from William Smith College in Geneva. While there, I had the chance to work with other students and staff in Drug and Alcohol Programming. I was lucky enough at the Warner School to meet Melissa, who invited me to work in the UHS Health Promotion Office. From then on, we have been working together to develop SWARM. I look forward to getting to know and work with students on the bystander concept and alcohol awareness

I graduated from the State University of New York at Cortland where I earned my undergraduate degree in Health Education. This fall, I will be starting my graduate program in Administration of Higher Education with Student Affairs at the Warner School here at the University of Rochester.
I am a graduate assistant in the UHS Health Promotion Office, adding a specialty in college health to my background experience. I am excited about this opportunity with SWARM and being able to reach out to students who truly care about the well-being of their fellow classmates. I look forward to working with you!

I am a Microbiology and Public Health (Health, Behavior, and Society) dual degree. I became involved with the UHS Health Promotion because I wanted to do something to encourage good mental health among my peers. When the stresses of exams, class, and work are overwhelming, students tend to neglect their physical and mental health. Working with the UHS Healthy Monday program has given me the opportunity to remind students of the importance of balancing obligations with fun, while still being successful in the classroom and maintaining an overall positive state of mind. I believe making healthy choices and taking care of your body is the first step to having both a successful and rewarding college experience. I am excited to be part of SWARM.

I am currently a senior majoring on Economics. I decided to get involved with SWARM because I believe that anyone who wants to be an educated member of society must know how to approach the subject of alcohol in a proper manner. On campus I am a brother of Delta Upsilon, a Tour Guide for the Admissions Office, a CA in Riverview, and on the 2013 Class Council as the Senior Week Coordinator.

I am a junior majoring in Political Science with a minor in Legal Studies and cluster in Epidemiology. This coming year, I will be the President-Elect of the newly established Douglass Leadership House, a cultural community living center on campus. I am an active student-athlete participating on the Varsity Football team as well as intramural basketball.
This is my second year working for the UHS Health Promotion Office. I have a firm belief that encouraging people to make healthy life choices through interactive programs and events can really make an impact. I am thrilled to be welcomed back to the UHS Health Promotion office as a member of the SWARM team.
