Bio: Matthew La Corte is an undergraduate student at Hofstra University in New York where he is majoring in Political Science with a minor in Economics and Speech Communication. Matthew always resented the two-party system and sought an alternative to party politics. He found his answer at the 2010 NYC Regional Conference. As a freshman at Hofstra, Matthew became President of Hofstra Libertarians and enjoyed debating his professors on the effectiveness of free markets. As a Campus Coordinator for SFL, Matthew used his passion for the ideas of liberty to help create a wide network of pro-liberty student groups in the New York City area. Now on the North American Executive Board, Matthew is excited to be working with more students than ever before as SFL grows to amazing new heights.
Favorite figures in liberty: Adam Smith, Frédéric Bastiat, FA Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, Milton Friedman, James Buchanan, Peter Boettke, Chris Coyne, and Jeffrey Tucker
On Students For Liberty: “SFL is literally changing our world. I am honored to be working with such a dynamic and brilliant group of students in the fight for human freedom. SFL is empowering students all over the globe to learn and spread the ideas of liberty in an optimistic and beautiful manner and I could not be happier to be playing a part.”
