My favorite memory in my short time as a Johnny is without a doubt tip-off when Juice Wrld performed in Carnesecca Arena. The energy of the night and being with so many fellow students made it really special to me.
What makes St. John's different from other schools is definitely the close ties to the city that you have. New York City is the greatest city on earth and when you come to St. John's the Big Apple starts to feel like home.
Since becoming a Johnny I have changed greatly as a person. I have become much more independent as now I live hours away from my family. And I have also become much more culturally well-rounded as St. John's does a tremendous job of maintaining a very diverse student body.
I chose St. John's for many reasons, but I'll just list a few. The first is that academically it was a good fit, as the average GPA and SAT scores were similar to mine. Secondly, when I came to visit on a shadow day I absolutely loved the campus and enjoyed the class I sat in that day. And lastly I was intrigued by the countless internship opportunities that come with being located near New York City.
