St. Johns stood out to me because of its abundance of opportunities. I realized attending this university would be able to give me a ton of connections with internships for my career in the field of business. When I came to see the campus it was the clear choice, because I wanted the closeness of a big city while also being on a traditional college campus, so for me, it was the absolute best of both worlds.
SJU is unique because it is a huge college campus made up of many teachers and students, but it feels like a small campus. The one-on-one from professors to students is priceless, and I've never felt like one of my professors didn't care about my academic experience. It has countless opportunities being so close to the city, and that is something you don't normally get from a traditional college campus.
My favorite memory as a Johnny was the tree lighting in December. It was so great to see the fireworks and all of my friends and professors come together to celebrate Christmas, and winter recess!
Since attending SJU I have learned so much about myself. I interact with different cultures and people everyday. Living away from home and in this busy city has allowed me to grow and become more independent.
