Profile: Mike earned a bachelor's degree in Communication Studies from Canisius College in Buffalo then enjoyed a stint in advertising before returning to his alma mater to begin a career in college admissions.  During his 20-plus years at Canisius he earned a master's degree in educational administration while developing expertise in enrollment management, at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

Fun Fact: Mike began donating blood in his senior year of high school. During his junior year of college, a friend who was studying to be a phlebotomist, encouraged him to donate platelets. Later that year he made his first donation and has been donating platelets since. He recently made his 180th donation of whole blood or platelets.
