Albanese reads applications for the state of New Jersey, with the exception of Bergen and Monmouth counties, as well as many of the distance states. He jokes that he often has to recite the "50 States Song" that he learned as a child to recall all of the states he covers.
At Salve Regina, Albanese majored in psychology, minored in sociology and wrote his thesis for the Pell Honors Program (of which he was a member) for English communications. He was a member of the cross country team, a Resident Advisor, a student ambassador, a singer in the University chorus and contributed to the University literary magazine, The Willow. He embraced the liberal arts experience, thriving in an environment that provided small class sizes, individual attention and the opportunity to try new things and challenge his beliefs.
Hailing from New Jersey, Albanese has embraced the Ocean State with open arms and considers himself a Rhode Islander now. He loves living in Newport, where he is no more than a five-minute walk from the ocean and the vibrant downtown, where he can interact and be involved with the residents of the town.
Albanese's favorite part about attending Salve Regina was the fact that he was able to be heavily engaged on campus, but also be involved in the city of Newport. Having the opportunity to join the Salve Regina, Newport and Rhode Island communities has brought the most wonderful benefits he could ever imagine.
