Tour Guide at St. John's University
Class of 2022
Hometown: Levittown, NY
I chose St. John's University because of the educational aspects. However, the atmosphere and genuine people that are at SJU, is was truly helped me pick this specific college. Along with the education, the entire package that is "St. John's University", created a second home for me to pick.
Since I have become a Johnny, I have grown out my own shell and connected with more people. SJU has been able to gather me around people who won't judge me and encourage the diversity I bring. I have gained more confidence in who I am because of these amazing people.
Personally, my favorite memory as a Johnny was just a random weekday after chemistry lecture. My friends and I decided to head to Marillac to get a cup of coffee and donuts from Dunkin'. Our lecture had finished at 10:40am, so the morning coffee would wake us all up for the day. But sitting around the table, drinking coffee with my friends is not what made this memory special. It is the fact that we all sat at that one table for about 3 hours, just talking and laughing about anything and everything.
What makes SJU different is the attention to detail and support the staff and university is constant dishing out to students. College is a very new and scary experience for incoming freshman, but SJU makes the warmest welcomes and support throughout any journey one may encounter.
