The undergraduate Dean’s Council at the Gabelli School of Business at Lincoln Center will welcome five new freshmen next week.
Casey Shenloogian, Marek Walker, Michael Wieck-Sosa, Bernard Zhang, and David Sirota, all BS ’19, are the newest members of this student group, which acts as a bridge between Gabelli School students and the administration and faculty—and between the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses.
Dean’s Council members are able to express opinions about what they would like to see happen in the Gabelli School.
Sophomore members include Victoria Cleveland, Dillon Rebock, Anthony Norris, Joseph Gorman, Raisa Masood, Alyssa Suroweic, Sahcha Pierre-Louis, Greg Govea-Lopez, Franchesco Lonardo, Katherine Tracy, Menelaos Alexandrakis, and Madeleine Haig, all BS ’18.
Here are mini-bios of the new members, some in their own words:
Casey Shenloogian is an open-minded individual looking to gain every ounce of knowledge Fordham University has to offer. Shenloogian is unsure of her business concentration; she has a keen interest in history. She grew up in Hasbrouck Heights, N.J.
Marek Walker is pursuing the global finance and business economics concentration. He attended high school in Austin, Texas, where he was the president of his National Honor Society chapter and started a Model UN club. In his spare time, Walker enjoys reading classic fiction novels and riding his road bike.
Bernard Zhang enjoys being involved in event organization. He was involved in student council throughout high school in Clinton, N.J. To relieve stress, Zhang plays computer games, which sparked his aspiration to double major in computer science. Throughout his high school career, Zhang took 17 Advanced Placement courses.
Michael Weick-Sosa, from Portland, Oregon, has chosen Lincoln Center’s healthcare management concentration. In his high school, Weick-Sosa started a Model UN club, played sports, and volunteered. He is very passionate about politics and enjoys watching tennis, theater performances and comedy shows in his free time.
David Sirota, from Brooklyn, plans to opt for the global finance and business economics concentration. He is looking to get involved with the Commuter Students Association and possibly starting a club of his own. Sirota works as a community manager for a startup called OneClass. In his free time, he is a comedian and enjoys running.
