I think there are two things that make SJU different, and they are the opportunities & diversity. Coming to SJU opens up so many different opportunities for people socially, in the work place, and in education. And second the diversity here at SJU creates a very good environment for students to learn from and about their peers.
I chose SJU because this was the cheapest option for me. Originally the other schools I wanted to go to where too far and I would have paid a lot more for room and board. Although originally I picked St. Johns because of the price I can also say I truly believe things are meant to happen and I believe that it was meant for St. Johns to be my most affordable school because I was meant to go here.
Since I have became a Johnny I have grown so much as a person. All the ups and downs that I go through here are learning lessons and I truly believe that when I graduate and go out into the real world I will use the things I learned from my experiences in college. One of the biggest things I think SJU has helped with is my public speaking and presentations skill, I feel that when ever professors give me them I know I am going to get an A because I have so much confidence talking in front of people now.
My favorite memories are mostly all my memories from being an orientation leader. I have had so many good experiences with incoming freshman for the two days that they spend here during orientation. My favorite memories are when after they leave they text me afterwards thanking me for making their first experience a good one, these texts are what remind me that I am doing a good job and that I am actually impacting the people who come in contact with me during just those two days.
