Alumni Q&A Series
Michael Ramos became deeply connected with FDU as an undergraduate, a bond which has only strengthened over the past two decades since he graduated.
After starting his FDU career on the Teaneck campus – Michael dove in immediately as a resident assistant and showed the ultimate school spirit by serving as the mascot for the men’s basketball team. He ended his undergrad career playing football for the Devils while finishing his degree in Graphic Design on the Florham Campus.
That connectivity with FDU didn’t end on commencement day. Ramos – as he prefers to be called – founded the SOA Arts Alumni Chapter in 2017 and currently serves on the Board of Governors, as a Vice President chairing the Marketing Committee. He also serves on the advisory board for the School of Arts.
There has been no doubt that from the moment he stepped on campus that Michael Ramos bleeds Burgundy & Blue…and always will.
