SJU is different because it truly values a persons culture and background. They emphasize the acceptance of someone’s cultures and beliefs while showing you that everyone is truly the same. SJU is a great place to expand your knowledge while also making lifelong friends.
My favorite memory as a Johnny is the Spring Carnival. They have a ton of events for you to do before finals week and it's a great way to de-stress. The have a ferris wheel and food and it's just an amazing place to hang out with your friends and a chance to make new ones.
I chose SJU for many reasons. One of them was because my tour guides made me feel as if I was at my second home. The school does a wonderful job at making everyone feel welcome and like they belong here. Another reason I chose SJU is because they make sure that you're taken care of, whether is be through your classes or making sure that you have what you need to succeed in your life.
Since I’ve become a Johnny, I’ve grown tremendously. I now know aboht other people’s values, lifestyles and how they were raised. It’s helped me value what I’ve been given and to appreciate what the school has shown me. The school has also helped me become independent as a person and I now know what I have to do to succeed in life.
