Patrick Morelli is a 5th year Food Marketing Co-Op student from Westchester, New York. He plays Club Baseball at SJU and has for all five years.
Patrick was originally going to attend Union College in Albany, New York to play baseball and study economics. However, with 4 months left in his senior year he tore his UCL and could not throw a baseball for a year. With baseball out of the picture, Patrick opted to attend SJU and study food marketing.
Within the Co-Op program Patrick has done internships with Bimbo Bakeries USA and The Hershey Company. For his internship with Bimbo Bakeries Patrick spent the semester living and working in Charlotte, NC. This was a great experience for him and he got to attend the ACC Championship game between Duke and North Carolina. Meanwhile, Patrick’s internship with Hershey was during the pandemic so he was stuck working virtually which was very different from his previous experience.
Patrick hopes to use the knowledge he learned from our food marketing program to get a job within the food industry at a company he can grow in.
