Michael Rizzi, student
I fell in love with the campus.

Michael Rizzi can’t survive without his calendar.

“I live on my Outlook on my computer,” he says. “I’m very organized, to the point where everything has to be scheduled in because if not it would be all thrown up in the air.”

In addition to his 3Year Honors Program in Business Administration course work, Michael is a resident assistant who watches over 30 resident students in New Castle Hall and is an admissions tour guide. He also works with the campus programming board and is involved with the Relay for Life.

“It’s something you can look back on and be proud of,” he said.

The tour guide position is fitting; it was the tour that clinched the Pompton Plains, N.J., resident’s decision to come to SNHU.

“I fell in love with the campus,” he said. “Everybody was so friendly and so nice and it just felt like a perfect fit for me.”

And even though they make fun of his Jersey accent, he’s really bonded with his classmates.

“Those are 30 of my best friends,” he said. “If somebody doesn’t understand something, everybody works together to make sure everybody’s on the same page. You look forward to going to class every day so you can see them.”
