Rich Parez



B.A in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Elementary Eduction, Endicott College; 
M.Ed. in Higher Education with a concentration in Student Affairs, Merrimack College

Favorite place on campus:
Student lounge in the campus center, it is a great opportunity to see all the different clubs and organizations promoting their activities.

Fond memory or experience from your undergraduate years:
Making all the relationships with my professors, faculty members, and other students.

Tips for high school seniors: 
You’re going to be spending a lot of time on campus so I would recommend that you tour campus and sit in on a class to see if you feel comfortable here.

Last great book you read:
Private written by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro

Most played song on your ipod:
Right now it is Rascall Flatts “Life is a Highway” but Smash Mouth “Allstar” is a close second.

Where would you like to travel:
I have always wanted to go snowboarding in Colorado.

One thing about you that may surprise your colleagues:
I love adventure type activities. I have been parasailing, snowboarding, skiing, and sky diving twice. The only activity that I have no interest in trying is bungee jumping.

One great discovery you’ve made on Merrimack’s campus:
The Mendel Observatory is an awesome spot to check out the stars, meet students as well as people within the community.

What makes Merrimack the place to be:
I think that Merrimack offers our students a sense of belonging with our small community.
