Why did you choose SJU?

During my college search I was looking for a place that I could be in the city but have a campus. I also wanted to be somewhere that had a lot of school pride surrounding athletics. St. Johns was the obvious choice.

How have you changed since becoming a Johnny?

Being in Queens, the most diverse borough of New York City, has exposed me to some pretty amazing people and cultural experiences. I appreciate "different" more than ever.

What's your favorite memory as a Johnny?

My freshman year I was called to deepen my relationship with God and become a Catholic. After a year of discernment, as part of the RICA program, I was initiated into the church through baptism, first communion, and confirmation.
