Paul Vespo, MA '19

Paul Vespo, MA '19 Marist College School Psychology program Why did you choose to pursue your graduate degree at Marist?
My deep interest in psychology and human development guided me in my academic journey. I resonated to Marist College’s objective to teach school psychology students to be experts in psychological assessment, counseling, and educational consultation - the various roles a school psychologist must perform to be effective. Based on these respectable standards, I believed that Marist College would prepare me the best for becoming a school psychologist. In addition, the school psychology professors are phenomenal.
