A Conversation with Matt Strasenr

What would you tell a student who is thinking about attending A&M-Commerce?

A&M-Commerce offers a personalized college experience. Professors really care and spend time with each student. Everyone knows everyone here.

What do you like most about your career?

There are so many stories to tell around campus. Every year, we have more stories to tell and each one is different. I enjoy working with student workers to help them grow as photographers. There is so much energy on campus, and I love being a part of it.

When I was in college, I was required to take a photography class. I loved the class so much that I became a photojournalist. Because I have been willing to take a chance, I have been photographing stories and sharing history for 20 years.

How do you help students at A&M-Commerce?

I help students by documenting history and using the camera lens to tell others’ stories. We never know what is going to be historical event. Many times, the people I photograph thank me for telling their story. On campus, I have had the opportunity to photograph noteworthy events and and am able to keep our students in-the-know.
