Hello, my name is Olivia Moscato and I’m from Bolingbrook, Illinois. I am majoring in psychology with a minor in criminal justice/ criminology. I fell in love with SIU Carbondale since I first visited the campus. I hope to be a useful resource and to help everyone feel welcome.

Hello, I am currently studying Business Management with a specialization in Entrepreneurship and a minor in Public Administration. I myself am a first-generation student, involved in the American Marketing Association and Saluki Ambassadors. I'm always seeking adventure and spend most of my time outside. I want to help other first-generation students find their way through their years at SIU.
