Tour Guide at St. John's University
Class of 2021
Hometown: San Marcos , CA
SJU is different in so many ways, but for one this school is so diverse and accepting that there is a place and a group for everyone on campus. Not to mention the great academic and career resources the school offers. I'm a business student, and the new renovations in Bent Hall, like the stock ticker and the Bloomberg Lab are very cool and very useful.
My favorite memory as a Johnny is easily, the Men's Basketball team beating Duke at Madison Square Garden. I was in attendance, and being in the student section was absolutely surreal. Great win, can't wait for more.
I chose St. John's for a number of reasons, but what got me to first apply was the combination of a traditional college campus and the proximity to Manhattan. However, I didn't truly make my decision until my campus tour. When I got on campus it felt like a home away from home, and by the end of the tour I was ready to commit.
Coming to St. John's has helped me find my passions, and start to lock in on what I want to do once my time here is done. I've made great friends, and become a more understanding and worldly person.
