What makes SJU different?

SJU is different because it is a school that believes in its Vincentian mission. It strives to help people become the best version of themselves while helping them help others whether that be other students or members of the community. Its mission of serving and reflection really makes this school stand out.

Why did you choose SJU?

I choose SJU because of the great pharmacy program. It is a straight 6 year program that requires no PCAT. I know I want to be a pharmacy and upon walking onto campus knew this program was a fit for me. In addition, SJU has great resources for me to grow as both a professional and an individual, this includes the lab facilities and the research opportunities.

How have you changed since becoming a Johnny?

Since becoming a Johnny I have become more active in school and a more social and bubbly individual. I frequently attend the sporting events and have become more outgoing attending many of the events across campus. I am a member of many clubs, some of which include leadership programs. The friends I have made here have helped me develop and grow out of my shell, allowing me to do things outside of my comfort zone.

What's your favorite memory as a Johnny?

My favorite memory as a Johnny is attending the soccer games. I love watching my fellow johnnies come together to cheer on their peers and motivate them to play their best. As a unit all the Johnny fans watch from behind the goalie waving their flags ready to see their friends kick the winning goal.
