My favorite memory is waiting in line to get a ticket for Tip-off. Everyone was up early and in line. There was music blasting and donuts and coffee being passed out and I thought, this place is really special to get at the least, hundreds of 18-21 year olds to get up early in the morning and gather to show school spirit.
I have definitely become more mature as a Johnny, I learned about independence and how to balance having fun and getting work done. I also gained a lot more school spirit.
SJU is a home away from home. The students here get stuff done, but this school is a home before it is a business. Other schools don't care about each individual the way this one does. SJU creates full functioning, well rounded, adults.
I chose SJU because it was the first school I had seen that made me feel comfortable, and at home. I knew I would be happy here, and that I would be welcomed with open arms as well as challenged academically.
