Matt Diaz was a 2008 Orientation Team Leader. The experience taught him many useful life skills such as “always being 5 minutes early for a meeting,” time management, and helped him to become more outgoing and charismatic.
Since being an OTL he has held many leadership positions, such as USF Amassador, Senate President Protempore, and was just elected as the USF Student Body President. He is an active member in the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and has served as their Senior Marshall of the Standards Board.
One of his most meaningful experiences at USF was when he acted as a site leader for Alternative Spring Break. He says that it, “made [him] appreciate everything [he has] in his life and how fortunate [he is] to be in college.” Matt will be graduating in the spring of 2012 and plans to go on to law school. He is very appreciative towards his former position as an OTL. Being an OTL, “made me love USF and made me feel more like a USF bull.”
