Undergraduate Admissions

Senior Spotlight: Alyssa Lamparelli ’22

This week’s senior spotlight is with Alyssa Lamparelli, Palmerton, Pennsylvania, a marketing major and social media strategies minor.


After graduating, I plan to go to London, England to get a master’s in marketing communications at the University of Westminster.


I am currently a marketing intern at the University of Scranton Small Business Development Center. I get to work with clients to give them marketing resources, like market research, target market profiles or a marketing plan, customized to their business goals and objectives.

Some of my favorites were the ones that I took to fulfill the general education requirements because I got to learn about topics I don’t usually get to take as a business major, like an art history course where I got to take a trip to the MET museum to see the art I had been learning about and a psychology class where I’m learning about the brain and human nature.
