When compared to other schools, Saint John's seems more like a family, and campus feels more like home. Saint John's makes me love going to school, because not only am I getting an excellent education, but I am also having an amazing college experience to go along with it.
My favorite memory as a Johnny was Tip Off, which is the Saint John's version of a homecoming game. It was so exciting to see all of the Saint John's students and staff so excited to be at an event. It was such a great way to kick off the basketball season, but also an even better way to start my first semester of college.
Since I became a Johnny, I have learned a lot about myself, and the world around me. I have been able to better myself as a student by improving my time management and study skills. I have improved as a person by making time for myself and my friends and family in my schedule, no matter how busy life may get.
I chose Saint John's because of it's close location to the city. Manhattan is a great place to find internships, study, explore, or just spend time with friends, and I knew that I wanted to experience college on a campus where the city was just a bus ride away.
