Hello everyone, my name is Phillip Leidner and I am a new intern for the Office of New Media at SUNY System Administration during the fall semester. I am a public policy major and a business administration minor at the University at Albany. I live off-campus but definitely do miss being in a clean campus dorm! This is my last semester attending the University at Albany; I will graduate in December.
I started my academic career at Nassau Community College in Long Island. After a year there, I transferred to the University at Albany and have been there ever since. My decision to start at Nassau was in hopes of transferring to a school to play basketball collegiality. After (quickly) realizing that was not in my cards, I chose the University at Albany for their prestige and well-known business program. After struggling to adapt to the new school environment and larger classes, I decided to make a change. Two years ago, I changed my major to public policy and am very glad I did so. I have learned far more than I could have hoped for, and throughout this internship I expect my knowledge to continue to grow.
