QUADRANGLE: Sullivan, Natalie [MC2014] disagrees with “fraudulent generation”



Posted on February 21, 2017 by The Quadrangle in Letters, Opinions & Editorials 

NATALIE SULLIVAN, Class of 2014 writes:

My name is Natalie Sullivan, and I am an alumnus of Manhattan College as well as the former editor-in-chief of the Quadrangle.

I am writing to express my disappointment in Manhattan College’s lack of response to the recent video of MC’s basketball coach, Steve Masiello, calling millennials a “fraudulent generation” who gets frustrated when things don’t go their way – much like Masiello did in this tantrum after losing to Siena.

When I saw this video posted to friends’ and fellow alumni’s Facebook walls, I was humiliated. As a student who was a senior when the Jaspers made it to the NCAA championship, when Masiello was found to have lied on his resume about his college education, I am truly astonished by Manhattan College’s lack of a suitable response to both, and as to why this PR nightmare is permitted to continue publicly embarrassing our school.

Masiello’s comments in this video are especially disturbing, having known and attended classes with some of the individuals that he coached who certainly were not given everything on a silver platter, and did not give up as soon as things did not go their way, as Masiello implied in his statement.

When I tell people that I got my degree from Manhattan College, I would like to hear about our world-class engineering program, or growing and thriving communications program, or our extensive community outreach. Instead, the first thing to come to many people’s mind are the incidents with our basketball coach.
I would like to remind Mr. Masiello that when he speaks in a public forum, he is the face of Manhattan College – both current students and alumni – whether he likes it or not. His opinions in this video do not reflect my own, and do not reflect the opinions of my beloved professors and fellow alumni of the school, and yet this is the reputation that has been forced upon us and has now been written about and broadcast on national and global news networks.

As one of the highest paid staff on Manhattan College’s payroll, Mr. Masiello should feel obligated to represent the quality education offered by our school, and vouch for the great character that I know to be true of the students and staff at Manhattan College, instead of publicly bashing us and accusing us of being fraudulent.

Tim’s grandfather liked to say of his West Brighton neighborhood, “You could shake a tree around here and a point guard would fall out.”

His own grandchildren went a long way to amending that, Breanne at Notre Dame HS and Wagner College, P.J. at St. Peter’s HS and Manhattan College.

George Beamon will begin his second season of professional basketball on Monday.

With a plane ticket but no guaranteed roster spot in hand, the former Roslyn High School star will head to Dallas on Sunday as a training camp invitee of the Texas Legends, the Mavericks’ NBA Development League affiliate.

Beamon will be one of 18 players at training camp, and the Legends will keep 10.

“D-League is a grind,” said Beamon, who appeared in 18 D-League games for Oklahoma City’s and Dallas’ affiliates last season. “I love it. It’s right under the NBA. What better place would I rather be at?”

Checking In With Haldane’s Class of 2011
July 11, 2015

Alumni share insights on the school and what they’re doing
By Clayton Smith

*** begin quote ***

Four years ago, the members of the Haldane High School Class of 2011 received their diplomas, and according to the school the majority entered college life outside of the close-knit school community that most knew for 12 years. The Paper thought it would be interesting to see what has happened to the 2011 class and what observations class members might have about their experience and the role Haldane played in preparing them for the next steps in their lives.

*** and ***

One widely appreciated aspect of the time spent at Haldane was Advanced Placement courses. “Haldane offered a variety of college-level courses for students to earn college-level credits,” said Erin Percacciolo. “I had taken advantage of those courses and that’s how I graduated a year early from Manhattan [College] with my bachelor’s degree.”

Percacciolo, who majored in childhood education and English, suggested that future graduates of Haldane take advantage of the cheaper college courses that the school provides because of their cost-effectiveness. Many in the Class of 2011 were happy to have access to these, as they ultimately resulted in students saving time and money during college.
