Arthur Marrapese IV ’13

Lacrosse and Accounting

Hometown: Orchard Park, New York

I chose UAlbany because… 
I transferred from Saint Joseph’s in Philadelphia. Some of my high school teammates were on the UA lacrosse team. They encouraged me to come.

Why accounting? 
My dad’s advice.

Favorite class
Mergers and Acquisitions taught by Professor Liu. 
(see Dr. Alfred Liu’s profile on page 13)

Marrapese Sports trivia
My dad played Division I football and my brothers played Division I and Division III lacrosse. I was captain of the hockey and lacrosse teams in high school.

What I’m proud of
I was a UAlbany Day advocate last year, representing the student body to meet with New York State representatives at the capitol. I was able to earn the respect of the 40+ kids on the lacrosse team.

What does the future bring?
Admission into the UAlbany MS Tax program and another year of lacrosse.
