    Resident Advisor

    Matt Benedict is a fourth year Psychology major studying at Pace University. He was born in Jacksonville, FL, and raised about two hours north in Hopewell Junction, NY. To relax in his free time, he loves to eat, cook, and play video games! One of his favorite things to do in NYC since moving to the Financial District two years ago is find new restaurants to try new kinds of food (his current favorite is Thai). Recently, Matt has become very interested in acquiring and caring for house plants, despite not having the best track record for keeping his plants alive. He says that if there is anything that makes a tiny NYC apartment feel more alive, nothing does it better than some flowers that you can care for and watch blossom.
