Alessandra1Alessandra Deiorio’s career path is clear. She intends to meld a business degree with medicine and perhaps go into hospital administration or medical sales. She has maintained a 4.0 grade point average since enrolling at USF two years ago and has been recruited into honor societies such as Phi Eta Sigma, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and Golden Key International. All these organizations require members to be in the top 10 percent of their class.

Deiorio hit the Muma College of Business running, as she took 46 college credits while in high school, and while she has been here, she has taken a wide variety of courses, receiving top grades in whatever class she takes, including chemistry and financial accounting. She expects to graduate in the spring of 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in general business administration. She is working toward an award in the Global Citizens Project and will study abroad in Florence, Italy, this summer

Deiorio is a member of the National Honor Society where she was once the secretary, as well as the captain of the USF women’s club soccer team, serving as the fundraising and volunteering coordinator. In 2016, the club logged the highest number of community service hours.

Deiorio gives back to the community, having volunteered for the Savage Race, the Stampede of Service, the Multi-Race Triathlon and Surfing for Autism. Her penchant for volunteerism dates back to when she helped her mother at a non-profit organization that assisted disabled people find jobs in Marion County.
