Samantha is a prime example of a student that has utilized all that UAlbany has to offer.

She is a former member of Albany Student Television and Middle Earth Peer Assistance Program. She has also worked in the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center since its establishment in 2009.

She is a member of Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and the Presidential Honors Society. Samantha also received the President’s Award for Leadership- Great Dane Award and the Arlene E. Ray Memorial Scholarship Award in Spring 2012.
Samantha is a self-proclaimed “diehard Leo” and “perfectionist,” and she thoroughly enjoys maintaining a jam-packed schedule. She is excited to serve the UAlbany community for the 2012-2013 school year as Programming Director, especially because managing large-scale events is her passion and, ultimately, her career goal.
She is open to any and all suggestions that her UAlbany peers may have for her regarding the events for this year! Please feel free to stop in her office in CC 116 or email her at SArpino@ualbanysa.org.
