Year of Graduation:
When Alex Adamo (BA, 2013) was at U of T Scarborough, he was all set to become a teacher. He volunteered in a classroom, marking and helping to prep lessons — and didn’t like it one bit. At the same time, he started working with the athletics director at the university. “I thought, ‘Yep, this is what I want to do.’”
Says Adamo, “I’m a sports guy. I was either playing sports, watching sports or talking sports.” Today, Adamo is an account executive with Toronto FC II, the minor league soccer affiliate of Toronto FC. He says UTSC helped him get set up for what he’s doing. How? “From getting involved with the athletic association, to having friends in the athletic department, to playing intramural soccer every season.
“UTSC is a small community. It’s so easy to access everyone,” says Adamo. And he’s found the same attitude at Toronto FC II. “They’re open to helping me plan for my future, and they mean it; it’s not just something they say.”
