Alumni Tale: Matt Kobzik ’12

What did you study at UNH?

History

What were you doing 1 year out of college?

At my one year anniversary of college graduation, I had just moved to Colorado. It was a great move, creating opportunities I never would have been exposed to otherwise. So far it has been an amazing experience, as I have moved from Vail to Boulder, broadening my horizons and meeting new people.

What are you doing now?

I currently live in Boulder and work for a local company called Eco-Products. The company specializes in compostable and post-consumer recycled content disposables. I recently received a job offer to work in the eCommerce sales and marketing part of the business and am very excited about my future growth within the organization.

How do you feel your time at UNH has had an impact on where you are today?

I really valued my connection with the professors at UNH. The History program is very small, so it’s intimate and has some of the most distinguished, well-rounded, and erudite professors anywhere. While I came out of school a bit uncertain of what I wanted to do, the knowledge and skills I learned while completing my undergrad gave me a chance to succeed at anything. I associate much of that with the amazing teachers I had during my time at UNH.

Why do you believe in UNH?

UNH has a great wealth of alumni, with people all across the country and world. I have had the chance to meet some of these awesome folks while being a member of the UNH Denver Alumni group. They are passionate, inspired, and vivacious citizens, ready to change their community and their world.
