What's your favorite memory as a Johnny?

My favorite memory was traveling with my history class via the Global Passport Program to Rome for the first week of summer. So many great memories were made on this trip, and it was my first experience of studying abroad, something that I plan to continue in the future.

What makes SJU different?

The feeling on campus is what sold St. John's to me. I believe that the atmosphere is unlike what exists on other campuses, it is a unique environment that provides educational as well as social opportunities for people of a wide variety of backgrounds. Everyone finds their niche and thoroughly enjoys their college experience.

Why did you choose SJU?

I chose St. John's as it provided me with the opportunity to pursue my intended career path in New York City. It had been my goal to go to college in NYC since I was in elementary school. Stepping onto St. John's campus gave me the feeling that this was the place where I could accomplish my goals and best prepare me for the next part of my academic life.

How have you changed since becoming a Johnny?

Since entering St. John's University, I have become much more self-motivated as well as independent.
