Anthony Buonfiglio ’16
College of Business
I served in the United States Army from 2009 until 2013. UNH was close to my family, and was in the top 20 percent of veteran-friendly schools. Plus I had friends who went through the business program and got great jobs. There was this buzz about “experiential education,” too, which turned out to be a big plus. In my Strategic Consulting course, for example, I got to work closely with the owners and executives of a large company. Also, UNH participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which meant that when my G. I. Bill tuition benefit of $17,500 ran out, UNH picked up the rest. Every cent.
My dad had a roofing business, and I worked for him on and off for years—nights, weekends, summers. He always had to figure out how to put his resources to best use, to make it to tomorrow. So I’ve been studying strategic leadership and business policy, because I want to answer those questions in the context of big business: where should we place our bets? How do we make it to tomorrow?
