Why did you choose SJU?

I have always known that New York City is the place for me, and SJU perfectly mixes urban energy and that unique "college experience". I fell in love with our gorgeous campus, the bright personalities of the students and faculty, and the incredible opportunities for networking and personal growth!

How have you changed since becoming a Johnny?

I am more resilient and confident in myself. SJU has allowed me to join the activities about which I am passionate, and I have been given the opportunity to showcase my leadership skills within those involvements. I am far away from my hometown, but SJU has become my home.

What makes SJU different?

SJU gives students a foot in the door! Our career services and widespread alumni create opportunities for amazing internships and jobs!

What's your favorite memory as a Johnny?

Definitely the spring carnival! There is nothing I love more than free food and entertainment, so all of the games and snacks really did it for me. It is held right before finals, so it was a fantastic opportunity to relax and unwind. I went with all of my friends, so it was just a really happy day at SJU.
