Bio: Hey everyone! My name is Matt Wenz, and I grew up in New Hope, PA. I am a May 2017 graduate of Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA with a degree in American Studies. While there, I was fortunate enough to be involved in a number of student leadership opportunities, including Residence Life, Student Activities, Academic Advising, and Admissions tours. When I spent more time with these offices than in a classroom, I realized that working with students and student leaders was the perfect career path for me. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue my studies at UConn, where I hope to enter into a career that will allow me to help students in the same way my incredible mentors helped me throughout my undergraduate experience.
Outside of the classroom, I love watching way too much Netflix, cooking and eating with friends, looking for new coffee shops to visit, and trying to find a concert to go to. I can’t wait to begin the HESA experience!
