Tour Guide at St. John's University
Class of 2022
Hometown: Arima, Trinidad and Tobago
I believe that St. Johns' diverse community and traditional campus layout sets it apart from other schools and makes students feel more welcomed and comfortable. In addition to this, the resources SJU offers such as Career Services beyond graduation, the Freshman Center and many more departments make this University stand out.
My favorite memory as a Johnny was Orientation because that was when I met three of my best friends. Orientation was also a very warm welcome to St. John's and gave me the opportunity to talk to many friendly faces on campus.
Besides having an excellent accelerate Pharm-D program (which at the time I was enrolled in), I chose St. John's because of its convenient location, traditional campus living and its diverse community. These aspects of SJU made its campus feel like a home away from home which is an important feeling for someone like myself who is far away from home.
Since becoming a Johnny, I was able to step out of my comfort zone and participate in things I usually would not and become involved with my school as well as other volunteer opportunities.
