Student Spotlight: Nicholas Santorelli, C’24

Office of Alumni Engagement

Nicholas Santorelli, C’24

Nicholas is an economics and mathematics double major, as well as Division I student-athlete.

Faculty in the Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business share a commitment to ensuring students leave the Mount as responsible and ethical business professionals.

Excellence in the curriculum goes beyond classrooms and textbooks, and dives into real-world solutions, experiential learning, and practical application of business decisions.

Nicholas merited both academic and athletic scholarships and decided to call the Mount his home for four years. A graduate of Damascus High School in Montgomery County, Maryland, he won state championships in the 200-yard freestyle. At the Mount, he holds swimming records in both the 200-yard and the 500-yard freestyle.

When he’s out of the water and in the classroom, Nicholas is most excited to learn from his experienced professors. This year he plans to work as a research assistant for Associate Professor of Economics John Larrivee, Ph.D. In a forthcoming independent study in behavioral economics, Nicholas hopes to gain knowledge and insight from Larrivee, who is also director of the BB&T Center for the Study of the Moral Foundations of Capitalism.

“My professors are very willing to answer all questions and care very deeply about each and every student’s intellectual development.”~ Nicholas Santorelli, C’24

Ready to apply his learning, Nicholas joined the economics club. There, in the company of his classmates and mentors, he analyzes market trends, looks at potential stocks to buy, and utilizes theories he’s learned in class to understand economic situations at hand. He has tremendous school spirit and is occasionally the Mount’s beloved mascot, Emmit.

What’s fueling his passion?

Nicholas is optimistic about his career in finance. He wants to earn a lot so he can give back to his parents and the Mount. He also believes he can showcase his leadership and management skills as a high school math teacher and swim coach—both of which would fulfill his passions.
