When you walk into student central this semester, you’ll see a lot of friendly faces ready to help with whatever you need. One of those faces is Matt DelFuoco, an enrollment associate. He’ll be able to help answer questions and point you in the right direction on financial aid, registration, advising and more. Beyond the friendly face and the smile is a person you might find is just like you.
DelFuoco, a Syracuse native, attended and recently graduated from both Syracuse University and OCC, majoring in music. He’s an avid trombone player and loves both comic books and tattoos. Once, DelFuoco even opened for Justin Bieber before he became famous in 2009 at an event in Clinton Square. “That was a unique moment,” DelFuoco says, “And I didn’t even know it at the time.”
He’s someone who values building relationships with people above all else. “I really love interacting with people and trying to help them answer questions and resolve issues.” It makes coming to work every day easy for him.
DelFuoco is also trying to build a better future for himself. He’s attending Syracuse University’s graduate program for communications at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. It’s a field that has always fascinated him and he hopes to get a job in the field when he completes the program.
But that doesn’t mean we’ll be losing DelFuoco’s friendly face from student central. He plans to stick around helping the students and serving the community while he completes graduate school.
Matt DelFuoco has served as an enrollment associate in student central since July 2017.
