Hi Marist!  My name is Matthew Lubrano and I have the privilege of serving as your Student Body President this year.  I am a senior accounting major and Catholic studies minor from Dix Hills, NY.  I've served in SGA since I was a first semester freshman and have loved every minute of it.  My positions have ranged from Senate Speaker to Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Student Life on the Executive Board.

Aside from SGA, I am also actively involved in the Alpha Phi Delta fraternity, as well as the Catholic Students Association.  These wide varieties of activities have given me the most amazing college experiences and I can't believe that this is my senior.  I hope to serve you all to the best of my abilities and make your college lives so much better.  Let's have some fun!!
