Chat with TESU

Paul Singh, BSBA ’15, MALS ’19

Paul Singh29.5. That is the amount of hours that Paul Singh has confessed to volunteering for Thomas Edison State University in 2018. And we know this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Originally from Punjab, India, Singh credits his family for making sacrifices to enable him and his brother to move to the U.S. to pursue education. As a first-generation graduate, he made sure to take full advantage of the opportunity and completed his bachelor’s and master’s at the University within three years. Singh is proud of his efforts to be able to provide for his family and to fulfill the obligation he feels not only to his parents but to make his own dreams come true.

While pursuing his studies and before, Singh worked in banking, retail, warehousing, accounting, as a chauffeur and finally settled into his passion, higher education.

Inspired to make a difference, Singh looks to leave behind a legacy of helping others, giving back and not forgetting his roots. Knowing how education changed his life, he is a strong advocate for TESU and looks to connect the institution with those that are seeking a change in their life. His support not only helps out a fellow student/graduate, it also allows Singh to live out his passion of helping as many people as possible. Singh also encourages his fellow alumni to support the institution by joining the Alumni Ambassador program.

Singh and his wife Parneet are the proud parents of Viraj who was born this spring. A fitness guru, he loves to travel as much as possible. He is currently an admissions counselor at Rowan University and previously attended and worked for Middlesex County College (MCC) as well. While at MCC, he encouraged colleagues to also consider TESU for their own educational needs and some graduated in 2017. He recently assisted with the reengagement of the partnership between MCC and TESU.
