Susan grew up in Brooklyn New York where she attended a very large New York City high school. From there she went to what was then a small state college in Buffalo New York. She learned to love the small school atmosphere of her college and now appreciates the fact that Alfred University still offers that same nurturing experience that she once enjoyed.
Susan is a news junky who loves politics and she pursued these interests when she selected her activities as a college student. She was involved in student government and Model United Nations to mention a few of the groups she joined. She urges everyone to get involved in some of the many clubs and organizations and to take leadership roles at Alfred University.
