Tour Guide at St. John's University

Diversity! I've made friends with people of all different kinds of ethnicities, religions, backgrounds, and belief systems.
I had always wanted to live in New York City, and after applying and touring St. John's, I knew that this was the perfect place for me. SJU impressed me with a great business program, generous scholarships, and a beautiful campus in the perfect location. When touring, the sense of community and friendliness I felt on campus made me feel like I was already home!
Some of my favorite memories so far are being on the big screen at Madison Square Garden at the SJU/Villanova game, getting discounted tickets to my favorite Broadway shows, and dressing up for the St. John's President Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria.
I have become a much more open-minded person throughout my time at SJU. Whether I'm here on campus or exploring the city, I have had so many different experiences that continue to form me into a better person. I've learned that trying new things and taking risks (like moving to NYC!) can really pay off.
