You're Not Seeing Double, These Twins Take #Nationallookalikeday to the Next Level

Barney School seniors Joe and Nick Prete ’16 have taken being twins to the next level throughout their college careers at the University of Hartford. These two Insurance/Finance majors from Long Island, New York have excelled in their academics throughout the last four years. For those that know them, it is no surprise that they have taken each class together! The Prete’s have also been active members of the Barney Leadership Council, the Barney School’s top leadership organization, the Gamma Iota Sigma risk and insurance honor society, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity.

“Deciding to go to college with my brother enhanced my Barney School experience because I was able to rely on him if I needed help, whether it was with academics, or making the transition into college. He was there for me, and I was there for him –it really made a difference,” Nick explained.

Joe also commented on his time at the Barney School. “My experience at the Barney School of Business has been nothing short of amazing because of the wonderful professors. Dr. Ann Costello has given me so much knowledge and courage and even helped me acquire my first job. I have been in her class every year since sophomore year and her enthusiasm and passion for her students should not be unrecognized. The faculty gives this school an optimistic atmosphere and have enriched my experience here at the Barney School of Business."

So what happens now that Joe and Nick are graduating? This dynamic duo doesn’t stop at commencement. The two have landed positions in the personal injury protection claims department at Safety Insurance in Boston. So their journey together continues as they embark on new careers after graduation. The Prete brothers are another great success story showing how the Barney School of Business helps their students to become Career Ready.
