  1. Well Sam you done it , what can I say but congratulations. Reby is now at Aberdeen and hopefully will realize that dreams can come true .

  2. Ciao Samuele, congratulazioni! My son (also an Italian) was inspired by your story as he approaches college application here in NYC. How can he connect with you to learn more about your experience? All the best. Michele

  3. Samuele, It was very inspiring to watch you tutor our students for the past 3 years at the Late Night Breakfast/Study Sessions. As an Italian-American, I was very proud to walk in the Commencement Ceremonies with you this past Saturday! Enjoy New York and your new adventures!

  5. Dear Sam,
    This is your family from Italy. You have faced many problems during the past three years and we were very worried about it: every days you were in our minds and we tried to do all our best in the aim to support you but sometime it was not so easy. Determination has really helped you in reaching this high level: you have been more stronger than the problem. Life is not easy, but we can success if we want! You did it!!
    We are very proud of you and we wish you all the best in your life, school, work and love!
    We miss you..and we always love you!

  6. The field of sports requires a team effort. And it took a team of academic specialists to launch the BS in Sport Management degree program. My role was to develop and get approved some of the initial courses in this degree program. However, it has been the chairpersons, faculty, and students who have made the BS in SM degree program such a glowing success at FSC. One more point, my father’s parents came to the USA from Naples in 1902. Though I have always considered myself 100 percent American, it is great to now see the Italian flag flown with that of other nations at our college. Just keep the USA flag flying the highest!

    In 1987 I was hired at and in 2015 I retired from FSC. These 28 years at FSC have been extraordinary for me.
