Patrick Zeoli, a member of the men’s golf team, is a perfect example of a busy athlete. In addition to team golf practices three days a week (at Hershey’s Mill near campus), Patrick and other members of the golf team practice individually as well.
As a Nutrition major with a minor in math, Patrick plans to become a registered dietitian and hopes to work in a hospital environment.
Patrick is a resident assistant and a rising leader on campus. He is also a member of the Immaculata Honors Program, the Student Dietetic Association, a math tutor, and a lector at Mass. As a student-athlete, Patrick served as a flag bearer at the Mass for President Lettiere’s Inauguration. He also made time to participate in a photo and video shoot to support the university’s marketing efforts.
Like other student-athletes, Patrick needs to manage his time, which he accomplishes by blocking off time for events and activities as if they were a class. He schedules an hour for golf practice or studying in the library. He also tries to study at the same time every day. “I get into a routine where I’ll go at the same time for multiple days in a row,” he states. “A routine definitely keeps me from falling behind.” However, he acknowledges that being an RA can throw curb-balls at you (or should we say “shanked” balls) which can unsettle a routine quickly.
In only his sophomore year, Patrick is already a pro at managing all of his obligations and going above and beyond when he organizes weekend events for the resident students such as a recent flag football game. In his spare time, he enjoys music, grilling in the summer for his family and he typically bakes hundreds of Christmas cookies every year with his two sisters.
Thank you Patrick for doing such a wonderful job representing Immaculata University!
