College Major: Psychology, Minor: Criminal Justice
Who can explain what the college experience is like at St. Thomas Aquinas College better than an alumnus?
As a Regional Admissions Coordinator and recent STAC graduate, Sam Auguste has the credentials and enthusiasm to share what it’s like to be a student here at STAC from his own personal perspective.
Sam earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and was the recipient of a scholarship award for his academic achievements. Also, a recipient of the Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) Award, Sam devoted three years as a mentor to other students in the program and worked in STAC’s financial aid office. He knows a lot about residential life after living on campus and serving as a Residential Assistant (RA) in the freshman boy’s dorm during his senior year. Among his many experiences during his undergraduate years are his volunteer service on the Midnight Run distributing food to the homeless and being on the Track and Field team.
“My favorite thing about working in Admissions is meeting students and explaining everything STAC has to offer,” Sam says. “I know firsthand how many opportunities there are here to enrich students’ undergraduate experience.”
Sam recruits students in New Jersey, and all other states outside of New York and Connecticut and can answer every question imaginable about the college, campus life, and its programs. He shares the many things he feels make STAC stand out from most other schools. These include career-building from the freshman year on; scholarship opportunities; and networking events with peers, alumni, and prospective employers.
When he’s not working, Sam likes to hike, work out, and try new restaurants. His favorite book series is “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” and if he had a superpower, he’d want to be a mind reader.
