What he does...

Great DaneJosh's transition from Long Island to Albany has been relatively easy. He has found some great friends and loves living in the tower on Indian along with other students in the Project Renaissance program.

Great DaneThe diversity here at UAlbany is very similar to what Josh experienced back home. So far, he has found his professors to be very nice and he is enjoying his freshman year.

Great DaneJosh feels that all prospective students should know that Albany is a very windy place. Also, the food isn't like your parents' home cooking. But these are both things that you adapt to quickly and they don't interfere with a great college experience at all.

Great DaneIn ten years, Josh would like to be a historical preservationist. "It combines my interest in history and architecture. If I could work to help preserve old landmark buildings, it would be really cool."
