Q&A with Dante Moss: College Experiences on Campus, in Florence and in NYC
Dante Moss, a junior policy studies and political science dual major, hasn’t always had the traditional Syracuse experience, spending two of his eight semesters away from campus and off the Hill.
Moss participated in the Discovery Florence program in his first semester of freshman year, studying abroad at Syracuse University’s Florence campus. Moss is spending the current semester in New York City as a teacher interning at the High School for Leadership and Public Service, while still taking Syracuse classes.
Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, Moss has also been busy while on campus as a volunteer at Wilson Park, a brother of Phi Delta Theta and an employee at the Ernie Davis Dining Center. He was also previously involved with full Circle mentoring. Moss will be returning to campus next fall to complete his senior year and hopes to build on his existing experiences and memories.
