Nick Zambelli ’19

OGO-Monk Scholarship

Senior Nick Zambelli performs powerfully as a defensive back for the Greyhounds. He has started for the football team in almost every game, beginning his freshman year. He also excels in every other arena
 of his Moravian University experience, which led to his selection as the 2017-18 Centennial Conference Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

An economics and computer science major with a minor in mathematics, Zambelli has made the dean’s honors list every semester. He completed two Merck-sponsored summer research projects in 2016 and 2017, which led to a paid internship with Merck during the summer of 2018.

Zambelli’s academic achievements led to leadership positions within his fraternity, Omicron Gamma Omega (OGO), which he currently serves as vice president and formerly served as Goldstar Chair. Having the highest grade-point average of the Class of 2019 seniors earned him an OGO scholarship. But all of the scholarships awarded to Zambelli throughout his undergraduate years made his Moravian University experience possible.

As he anticipates graduation, Zambelli reflects on
 the opportunities he’s had and his accomplishments with gratitude for those who have made it possible. “Moravian is not an inexpensive college to attend. Without scholarships, it would not have been a feasible option,” he says. And he appreciates how alumni giving has improved his experience, citing the Blue and Grey Club, which supports varsity athletics and helped build a desperately needed new locker room for the football and baseball teams.

Zambelli plans to secure a job in software programming after graduation and pursue a career in software development. As for his final semester, he says, “I want to continue to do what I'm doing and leave a good impression at the school.” By our estimation, he has already succeeded.
