I believe St. John's provides a great environment for me to be both socially and academically productive. It's my top choice not only because its campus is in New York City, but because of the science program! I feel comfortable knowing I can go out on exciting trips to the city and attend top notch classes everyday.
My favorite memory here at St. John's is attending a Multicultural Showcase my freshman year. I went along with my friends and had a blast! We tried many foods from different countries, watched cultural performances and danced until the event was over. It was so much fun and I'll forever remember how excited I felt.
I have become more conscious in my community since attending St. John's. I feel a better sense of pride in myself and now know how I can influence people better. There are plenty of opportunities here for me to do so, and I am taking advantage of every single one of them.
St. John's is a very diverse institution and it brings me pride that most of the student here are people of color, and the community is very much visible. I am very happy that I am surrounding myself with these people who are also working towards their degree.
