My education here has been the best. Just as important has been the encouragement from all of my professors, giving me the confidence to know that I can go anywhere and achieve any goal I set for myself.
Anthony Dario is a busy person with an upbeat, energetic personality. He discovered his talent for editing video when he was a sophomore at Newburgh Free Academy where he won the Liberal Arts House of Broadcasting Scholarship. He knew his love was broadcasting.
He chose Mansfield because of the broadcasting program, where he began working with production equipment the first day he walked into a classroom. Dario joined eight organizations his first semester, and remains part of three: the Student Government Association, the campus radio station and MUTV.
Becoming involved with the campus radio station helped him the most, especially with raising his confidence level, he says. He became the sports director for three semesters and broadcast all basketball games, home and away. Dario interned with the Hudson Valley Renegades, a minor league baseball team of the Tampa Bay Rays, where he did  marketing promotions, charity events and on-field entertainment for the crowd. “I love making people laugh on camera,” he says.
He has also volunteered in events such as the Feast of Famous Faces, the International Radio and Television Society holiday benefit, and recently finished a 10-day internship in Miami with the National Association of Television Programing Executives. He was selected out of 50 interns to be one of four celebrity guests and had the honor of escorting Fox CEO Dennis Swanson. “He is one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met and asked for my business card.”
Being at Mansfield has helped Dario build his confidence, understand the importance of diversity and network.
