Valerie Barbosa Communications

Hometown
Somers, CT

Favorite memory at Saint Rose?
I started out in Music Industry and switched majors to Communications. I met so many musicians thru the Albany DIY community and attended many shows that I will never forget. One in particular had Saint Rose bands: Laveda, Pacer Test, & Waitress and took place February 2020 right before the Covid shutdown. That was the last house show I’ve been to and one of my favorite memories. I also had the opportunity to play at the Linda in Albany, have my music released thru the school record label, and front my band, This Strange Paradise.

What are your future plans?
I want to save up and be able to travel. For now, I hope to find a broadcasting job in New York but will definitely move out of state for a new environment and new chapter within a year or two.

Kiyonna Friday Communications

Hometown Albany, New York

Favorite memory at Saint Rose?
I find it hard to determine my favorite memory at Saint Rose because there have been so many different events and clubs provided on campus. I loved dancing on the Saint Rose K-pop team, helping SRTV set up for their weekly news reports, writing for The Saint Rose Chronicle, giving a helping hand to the Student Events Board and The Radio Club, and last but not least, hanging out with The Geeks of the Roundtable and Identity. All these clubs helped me grow as a student and as a member of society. I can honestly say, without them, I may not have become the woman you see today.

That being said, if I have to choose, my favorite event was the annual Drag Show hosted by Identity. Although it was my first performance and my nerves had gotten the best of me, causing me to completely forget my routine, everyone one was so supportive! I ended up placing second in that performance but it was the support, fun and new found confidence that touched my heart and will always stick with me.

Hometown Albany, New York

Favorite memory at Saint Rose?
I find it hard to determine my favorite memory at Saint Rose because there have been so many different events and clubs provided on campus. I loved dancing on the Saint Rose K-pop team, helping SRTV set up for their weekly news reports, writing for The Saint Rose Chronicle, giving a helping hand to the Student Events Board and The Radio Club, and last but not least, hanging out with The Geeks of the Roundtable and Identity. All these clubs helped me grow as a student and as a member of society. I can honestly say, without them, I may not have become the woman you see today.

That being said, if I have to choose, my favorite event was the annual Drag Show hosted by Identity. Although it was my first performance and my nerves had gotten the best of me, causing me to completely forget my routine, everyone one was so supportive! I ended up placing second in that performance but it was the support, fun and new found confidence that touched my heart and will always stick with me.

Christopher Ruckert Adolescent Education/History

Hometown
Mastic Beach, NY

Favorite memory at Saint Rose?
I became a St. Rose student after having been out of the Marine Corps for only a few days. I was terrified of the transition and was really worried about fitting in with my fellows and doing well academically. I had no idea what the future had in store for me. My favorite memories will always be my slow transformation from where I was socially and emotionally to where I am now. With help from the faculty, whose compassion and knowledge know no limits, and my newfound friends and colleagues I will always cherish the journey to where I am now. I am truly happy.

What are your future plans?
I plan to continue to pursue my full certification to be an educator here in the great state of NY. I will continue to learn under the guidance of Dr. Fragnoli and the rest of the Education dept and am motivated in the extreme to hone my skills as a mentor and educator as to better serve my community and the future generations of Americans who will inherit the world we pass along. Trading in a ruck sack for a briefcase will continue to be a rewarding experience for me.

He has been my number one supporter through my entire life, but my family here at Saint Rose has only lifted me up even more. This school has giving me a place to grow into myself. It’s been an honor to work with such incredible musicians, my best friends and colleagues.
