Today we feature Nicolas Matteo, a senior Radio, Television & Film major from Washington Township, NJ (Gloucester County). Nicolas transferred to Rowan from Rowan College at Gloucester County (now RCSJ), and commuted to campus prior to temporary shutdowns in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. He is a first-generation college student.
Could you share your favorite moment or experience in one of your classes?
My favorite moment was getting my hands on the Black Magic 4k cameras in my Film Production 2 class.
What advice would you give to incoming freshmen or transfers about making the most out of their college experience while choosing a university close to home?
Join and participate in the Cinema Workshop. I haven’t been able to, but I hear it’s totally worth it.
Do you want to give a thank you shout out to your family, friends, advisors or mentors?
I want to thank my parents, my sister Sophia, my beautiful girlfriend Destiny, and my brother-from-another-mother Jeremy, for sticking by me and helping me along the path of greatness.
