Campus Celebrity: Alessandra Patrizio

“And now for you starting lineup: A junior from Wynnewood Pennsylvania, number 12 Alessandra Patrizio!” *and the crowd goes wild*

Her Campus was honored to have another chance to talk with Al Patrizio, after she was interviewed as a Campus Cutie last year. Now she is back again as a Campus Celebrity! This student-athlete earned Liberty League offensive Player of the Week multiple weeks in a row and even led the NATION in goals for Women’s Field Hockey during the 2015 season. Her incredible athletic skills and friendly personality certainly have contributed to her being a Campus Celebrity.

HC: Why did you choose HWS?

AP: I choose HWS because I wanted to play field hockey at a rigorous academic school and I love the lake. 

HC: What’s it like being apart of a team here at HWS?

AP: It’s an awesome experience, my team is my squad! Being on a team allowed me to meet a lot of new people and people you know that will have your back no matter what. I can truly call them my family.

HC: What was it like leading the nation in goals for field hockey?

AP: As much as it’s seen as a personal accomplishment, I really credit my team because all of their hard work is what made it possible. It’s truly something I will never forget and will always cherish, for me it also shows that anything is possible with determination and heart.  

HC: What’s your favorite memory throughout your field hockey career so far?

AP: Getting revenge on Ursinus College this past year!

HC: What makes the team unique?

AP: We have a lot of fun at practice and still work hard and get stuff done!

HC: Who’s your role model?

AP: Beyoncé. She works hard and is perfect at anything and everything she does. 

HC: If you could choose one walkout song what would it be and why?
