What makes SJU different?

St. John's is so involved with the city and its faith but the university doesn't overwhelm the students with that if it's not what you want. You can take advantage of the city and you can study any faith that you desire. St. John's wants its students to be comfortable and happy with their college experience.

Why did you choose SJU?

After going on my first tour, I was completely sold on St. John's. Hearing about all that it has to offer from the programs within the School of Education, the D1 Dance Team, and the study abroad opportunities.

What's your favorite memory as a Johnny?

Being able to wear the St. John's logo on my chest while doing what I love most is an absolute honor. Walking onto the Nationals stage in front of other universities and representing St. John's is an amazing feeling. Being a dancer and being recognized by my school and the nation is something my 5-year-old self can only dream of.

How have you changed since becoming a Johnny?

Since coming to St. John's overall I have become more confident and sure of myself. From the classroom to the dance floor, I feel that the people around me and the atmosphere make me feel at home and accepted. I'm not scared to try anything new because of the support St. John's has for me.
