Student of the Week: John Sessa


When looking for a student to help run the Le Moyne Student Programming Board (or LSPB for short), it doesn’t hurt to have someone who really seems to know what Le Moyne students want.

“I do a lot of research, figure out what works and what doesn’t,” John Sessa said of his job as LSPB co-chair. “Right now, I’m mainly focusing on the upcoming concert, which is going to be a total surprise. I’ve been putting lots of hours into that. It should be pretty cool.”

After acting as publicity chair his junior year, Sessa, a senior English major with a concentration in creative writing and a philosophy minor, now serves as co-chair of LSPB.

“I oversee all the major decisions made on the executive board,” Sessa said. “We usually focus on events from Thursday to Sunday, but there are events each day of the week.”

In addition, Sessa is a writing tutor in the Academic Support Center and once served as the president of the Le Moyne Education Club. A skilled guitar player, he also enjoys performing every now and then, whether by himself or with another enthusiast.

“I play at coffee houses and bars, and I play a lot on campus, too,” said Sessa. “I’m in a class of [music professor] Todd Hobin’s, and once a week, we drive down to his recording studio to do some performing.”

Sessa has applied to the five-year graduate Adolescent Education program at Le Moyne, though a little bit of traveling is not out of the question.

“I’m interested in possibly doing graduate school abroad in Scotland or London,” Sessa said. “Both places have a great literary history and a rich history in general.”

“I also want to chill for a little bit,” Sessa said. “Live life, travel, all that good stuff.”

That being said, Sessa obviously enjoys everything Le Moyne has to offer.

“You get to meet a lot of people here,” Sessa said. “And there are connections with teachers you can’t get anywhere else.”

It seems clear that Sessa will be making the most out of his (potentially) final year here at Le Moyne, whether he’s promoting a big event on campus, helping students with their papers or simply jamming out with Todd Hobin.
