Matthew Giordano grew up in Livonia, Michigan and currently attends University of Detroit Mercy as a biology and pre-dental major. In high school, Matthew knew he wanted to attend UDM. In fact, it was the only school to which he applied! His interest in dentistry began at a young age after talking with a dentist family friend. Matthew has been shadowing at a dentist office since 10th grade and has even had the opportunity to work in a dental lab.
In addition to his studies, Matthew is involved in numerous extra-curricular activities. He is a brother of Alpha Phi Omega, a national co-ed service fraternity, where he is the chair of the fraternity’s largest service project called Sandwich Bus. The service project delivers sandwiches to homeless people across Detroit.
Matthew is also a member of the ministry choir and works with the Alumni Relations Office as a Presidential Ambassador. In 2014, as Orientation Director, he oversaw UDM’s orientation sessions for the incoming freshman class.
This year, Matthew will graduate, completing his degree in just three years, and has already been accepted into dental school.
