Nathan Tombo

My name is Nathan Tombo and I am a senior from Emerson, NJ. I am majoring in Marketing with a liberal studies major in Earth, Environment, and Global Sustainability. I hope to leverage my educational background and professional experiences to better connect people to products and services.

On campus, I am a brother of Alpha Kappa Psi, a co-ed professional business fraternity and also work with the Residential Center as a Resident Assistant. In the past I have also served as a Senator for Student Government Association and worked with the Office of Sustainability as a Marketing Outreach/PR intern. Through these experiences, I have been lucky enough to connect and collaborate with amazing Bentley students, faculty, and staff that have truly shaped my Bentley experience.

Off campus, I enjoy thrift shopping and trying to find the best cup of coffee to add to my on-going list of coffee shops in the Boston-area. Feel free to say hi to me if you see me around campus or on the MBTA 73!

I’m really excited to contribute to the CareerEdge team to help advance the Pulsifer Undergraduate Career Development Center in any way that I can!
