Student of the Week: Alex Di Rienzo


Quite often, two of the most interesting features of a person are creativity and the enthusiasm for that creativity. Alex Di Rienzo has plenty of both.

A junior theatre major, Di Rienzo isn’t involved with too many on-campus activities, but he still keeps himself busy with screenplays, scripts for stage plays, and the occasional Major Arcana production at the Performing Arts Center.

“I like being part of Major Arcana, the voice of students,” Di Rienzo said. “There’s a great community aspect to it and there’s something electric about it. Anything could happen at any moment.”

In addition to starring in past productions of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead,” and “The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told,” Di Rienzo has written a piece for the PAC’s annual Family Weekend showcase and has considered directing a show for Major Arcana. He plans on using his interest in creative writing to get into the film business.

“I want to write screenplays [for a living],” said Di Rienzo. “I’m a big fan of dark comedy and science-fiction.”

Film has always been a part of Di Rienzo’s life for as long as he can remember.

“I’ve always been a giant movie fan,” Di Rienzo said. “My first good memories are of going to see Disney movies. Movies can do what no other medium can do and I want to be a part of that.”

Di Rienzo has also expressed interest in directing and transferring to the Newhouse program at Syracuse University after graduation. If that weren’t enough, Di Rienzo has several other hobbies and collections to brag about.

“I’m a big music enthusiast, especially electronic music,” Di Rienzo said. “I love video games and martial arts. And I have cacti I take care of.”

That being said, Di Rienzo has clearly enjoyed his time at Le Moyne and has nothing but great things to say about the students and faculty.

“I love the people here,” said Di Rienzo. “I’ve been meeting a lot of great new people. And I love the faculty and how supportive they are, and just being part of a community.”
