The Proof Is In Our People
Why Michael Chose Rider
"When I visited, Rider made me feel welcome and comfortable. I also recognized that Rider provides some great opportunities for its students. I thought that if I worked for it, Rider could help me reach my goals."
Rider's Impact on Michael's Success
During his four years at Rider, Mike took full advantage of opportunities to build his leadership and professional skills. He served as chapter president and vice president for finance for his fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon; treasurer and finance board chairman for the Student Government Association; technology and web chairman for Relay for Life; and chair of the Appeals Council. As a College of Business Administration honors student, Mike also worked with incoming students through the Freshman Peer Mentoring program. He also gained valuable hands-on, real world experience through a summer internship and six-month co-op at Johnson & Johnson.
"I left Rider confident — confident that I had the people skills to be a personable and caring member of society, plus the expertise in my field to fuel my career and compete with the best candidates."
Prior to the start of his senior year, Mike was offered a full-time job as an external auditor at Deloitte & Touche, LLP. He continues to work there as a senior audit assistant. "I passed the CPA exam and am currently submitting my application for my certification."
Mike received widespread recognition for his academic, leadership and service achievements, including Rider’s prestigious President’s Award, the Center for the Development of Leadership Skills Leadership Legacy Award and the Cassie D. Iacovelli Student Government Award.
