Natalie buck's headshotNatalie Buck ’21
Admission Ambassador

Hi! My name is Natalie Buck, and I am from Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania.  I am dual majoring in mathematics and secondary education, while also minoring in sociology.  My future plans include being a secondary education math teacher after graduating from Albright’s education master’s program.   Most people are surprised when I tell them I am a commuter student because I am always doing something on campus.  I am a member and captain of the Albright cheerleading team, as well as the vice president of the math club.  I am also involved in Student-PSEA, ACES, the admission office as an ambassador, phone receptionist, and Albright fellow.  When I am not in class or studying, you may see me around campus giving tours to prospective families.  I look forward to improving the academic community at Albright while being involved in PSAC.

Anthony Woodlock's headshotAnthony Woodlock ’20
Club Sports

What’s good everyone, my name is Anthony W. Woodlock II, current senior here at Albright. Around campus, people may know me as Ant, Tone, Tony, AntDaBarber, AWWStar, etc. As previously stated, I am a barber and have been cutting hair for over 8+ years. As a child, I was a big art enthusiast and as my interest in drawing decreased, my interest in another craft increased; in particular, the craft of barbering. I come from a military family, so discipline and values are huge to me. My mother is an Army Vet and my father is an Air Force Vet. I am the youngest of 4 on my mother’s side and the oldest of 2 on my father’s side. I am a Business Management major.

On campus, I am also well-known for not just being a barber, but my entrepreneur mindset expands to being an upcoming trainer, and I am the owner of my own fitness apparel brand, the AWWStar Movement. This brand was established in early 2017. I am also a student athlete. I am the current President & Captain of our school’s Men’s Rugby Club. I’ve been playing Rugby for 3 years and have fell in love with the sport ever since I started. In conclusion, I am known to be very social, which encouraged me to get a job on-campus as the Intramural Coordinator. I’ve been involved in Intramurals my whole life, so being involved in multiple aspects on campus and working this job, is another way for me to create a friendly environment for students.

As a member of P-SAC, I hope to be able to communicate any concerns the Albright community has directly to the college administration.

I am that girl that loves to meet people of all different backgrounds, so I hope to meet you one day!
