Two incoming first-year students make headlines

| By Nick Alexopulos

Incoming first-year students Megan Bottino, ’17, and Matt Oshrine, ’17, have each made headlines in the weeks leading up to their arrival at Loyola University Maryland.

In July, Bottino, of Absecon, N.J., was awarded a prestigious Benjamin R. Chirls Scholarship by the New Jersey Sharing Network Foundation in cooperation with Donate Life New Jersey and the Gift of Life Donor Program. She was honored with the $4,000 scholarship for her leadership in raising awareness and funds to support organ and tissue donation after her father passed away while waiting for a liver transplant. Bottino was only 12 years old at the time, and she’s been a tireless advocate ever since.

Oshrine, of Pikesville, Md., will compete in the 2013 U.S. Amateur Championships at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., in mid-August. He will compete for the Greyhounds golf team starting in the fall.

He qualified for the Amateur by carding a 4-under par 68 on the second day of the U.S. Amateur Qualifier at Lebanon (Pa.) Country Club.
