Adam Palmatier,
Resident Direct

Hey Newing! My name is Adam and this is my second year at Binghamton. I did my undergrad and grad work at nearby Mansfield University of Pennsylvania. I grew up just 30-40 minutes south of here in the small town of New Milford, PA. I'm big into sports - Syracuse and New York Knicks Basketball, Atlanta Braves Baseball, and Dallas Cowboys Football. Aside from sports, I love to travel, watch movies, and live the dream!
