If you live in Martin Hall, you probably already know Brandon Lentine; if not, it is time to learn about one of Pace’s most gifted students.
This Molecular Biology major hails from Putnam Valley, New York. Given the proximity of his town to Pace, Brandon was a commuter during his first-year. Realizing that he wanted to become more involved on campus, Brandon decided to apply to be a Resident Assistant. Not only did he get the position, but he has been a high-performing R.A. for the past three years in both North and Martin Halls.
Being a Resident Assistant has helped Brandon become immersed in the university, as well as develop lifelong relationships along the way. His favorite part about Pace has been seeing his residents grow and helping them in anyway possible.
Aside from being a R.A. on campus, Brandon is a UNV 101 Peer Advisor, a member of Alpha Phi Delta national fraternity, and a tutor for Chemistry and Micro-Biology.
Pace garnered such a prized student because the school “runs in the family” as Brandon puts it. Both Brandon’s father and brother attended Pace, and his mother currently works for the University.
Brandon appreciates being a part of the Honors College because of the opportunities offered outside the classroom. Brandon states, “The Honors College provides the room for creativity to maximize your education.” He has completed an Honors Research Grant this past spring, which he enjoyed thoroughly. The Honors events are also something Brandon takes pleasure in, especially the Yoga workshop.
Brandon’s most valued accomplishment involves the three research projects he has worked on while attending Pace, one of which was published. He is currently doing research pertaining to cancer.
After Pace, Brandon hopes to attend Medical School, and currently has several interviews lined up with prestigious schools. His top three choices are Dartmouth College, Stony Brook University, and Albert Einstein School of Medicine. If his previous success at Pace is any indicator, Brandon will go on to many great things in the future.
