Why did you choose SJU?

I grew up in a very small town in Nebraska, I was never exposed to diversity. I choose SJU because of the diversity it had in its student body and staff. When I first came to tour SJU I was amazed by this and immediately felt at home.

What's your favorite memory as a Johnny?

My favorite memory as a Johnny is going to the winter carnival at the end of the Fall semester. I love spending time with my friends on the horse and carriage rides and the firework show at the end is absolutely amazing!

How have you changed since becoming a Johnny?

SJU has made me want to participate in service more than I would have at any other campus. I’m am now regularly involved in service, more than I initially would have thought.

What makes SJU different?

SJU is different than any other campus I’ve been to because I’ve never seen a campus with students as welcoming and as inclusive as the students at SJU. The student at SJU make sure that everyone is included in the classroom to additional activities.
