What's your favorite memory as a Johnny?

My favorite memory is definitely my experiences from studying abroad. I was able to live in Paris, Rome, and Seville for the semester and had the time of my life. I would recommend it to everyone!

What makes SJU different?

We are so diverse and that's what I love most about it. People from not just all over America but all over the world attend St. John's. It makes your experience here different than any other university.

How have you changed since becoming a Johnny?

I would say I've became more independent. When I came to New York, I didn't know one person so I really had to step out of my comfort zone because I wasn't able to depend on my friends and family back home. But I was able to fit in perfectly at St. John's and made friends that will last a lifetime!

Why did you choose SJU?

I chose SJU because of it's great Communications/Sports Management department. I'm also a huge sports fan so our basketball program was also a plus. Over all, I felt so welcomed when I visited the first time and knew this is where I'm meant to be.
