Daniel Maddalozzo is currently a student at Loyola University, double majoring in anthropology and film studies with a minor in history. Expanding on his interest in history, Daniel Maddalozzo has volunteered as a docent at The Field Museum of Natural History in the Ancient Americas exhibit and on has contributed his time to a local Mastadon dig. The Field Museum of Natural History is an educational institution that provides learning experiences to visitors so that they may better understand, respect, and celebrate each other and the natural world. With a collection of more than 20 million items, the museum’s exhibits encourage self-motivated, lifelong learning through interaction with tangible objects. The Field museum also facilitates scientific research. As an example, a new species in the raccoon family was recently discovered by scientist Kristofer Helgen while performing research at The Field Museum. Helgen arrived at The Field Museum in 2003 to review the olingos in their mammal collection only to discover a few that did not look as he had expected. He was then able to locate more olinguitos, as he called them, with help from The Field Museum and individuals in the Ecuadorian Andes Mountains.
Having been deeply immersed in extracurricular activities since high school, anthropology and film production student Daniel Maddolozzo also spends some of his time volunteering in a number of tutoring programs for underprivileged students. He has worked with the Loyola branch of the New Life Volunteering Society (NLVS), a secular nonprofit organization that recruits student volunteers for community outreach programs. With his liberal arts background, Daniel Maddolozzo tutored fellow college students in American History. The New Life Volunteering Society has partnered with the award-winning Chicago Youth Programs in providing comprehensive health and academic programs to youths ages 5 to 25 who are considered to be at-risk. Volunteers from the NLVS Loyola University branch act as tutors to children in weekly Read to Me, Teen Tutoring, and Score Tutoring sessions. The student tutors help these children improve their literacy levels, develop leadership skills, and prepare for tests such as the SAT and ACT. The tutors recently held a donut sale in September, their first fundraising event for the organization this school year.
