What's your favorite memory as a Johnny?

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.

How have you changed since becoming a Johnny?

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.

What makes SJU different?

Diversity! I've made friends with people of all different kinds of ethnicities, religions, backgrounds, and belief systems.

Why did you choose SJU?

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!
