Matthew Hill of Jamestown has been named Student of the Month for October by the Office of Residence Life at SUNY Fredonia.

Mr. Hill was nominated for the award by Interim Dean of the School of Business Moj Seyedian for strong academics and numerous contributions, highlighted by Hill’s work as a tax preparer for the area's low-income families as a member of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

Hill is a double major in Public Accountancy and Finance. Aside from his work with VITA, he is  the Vice President of the Business Club, and has an internship with the Audit Department at Dopkins and Company, an accounting firm in Buffalo. Hill to date has a 3.87 GPA.

“The smaller class sizes allow you to grow relationships with professors that you wouldn’t be able to at other universities." - Student of the Month Matthew Hill

When asked about his favorite things at Fredonia, Hill wrote, “The number of opportunities that the university gives its students.” He added, “The smaller class sizes allow you to grow relationships with professors that you wouldn’t be able to at other universities. I have been able to build many connections through the professors here at Fredonia that I know I wouldn’t have been able to somewhere else.”

Hill is a senior and as he is finishing his studies here at Fredonia, is also studying for his Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam. He will continue to work part-time at Dopkins and Company, with the goal of full-time employment in the fall of 2023 after graduation and completion of the CPA exam.

The Student of the Month program was implemented in 2003 to recognize students who are well-rounded, excel in their academics and contribute positively to the campus and community.
