As he did with his life, Mike Schrodel made the most of his time at FSU. He knew that college's lessons were not limited to the classroom. He was a good student, majoring in business administration. But more importantly he was a devoted friend to everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him—including the brothers of Sigma Tau Gamma.

Mike was very active in his fraternity, serving on the executive board. A star athlete during his years at Walkersville High School, he played a key role on several intramural championship teams. In fact, his feats on the field helped catch the eye of his wife, Teresa.

He cherished every second he spent with Teresa, his daughter Carmen, his family and his friends. Everything else was just details. You could always count on Mike to share a few laughs—even throughout his struggle with cancer. He faced adversity with the strength and courage of a superhero. His visitors always felt better when they left than before they arrived—not an easy task. But Mike always had the ability to make people feel good about themselves. And he exemplified the way life should be lived.
