Tour Guide at St. John's University
Class of 2021
Hometown: Elmsford, NY
When I first came to visit St. John's I felt at home right away. The more I saw of the campus and the people I became more convinced that I would fit right in and this was the place for me.
Since I started attending St. John's I have transformed into someone who has learned to be more responsible. I have had to handle situations on my own, without always turning to my parents. One thing I can say is that being more responsible and doing things on my own has made the outcome much more rewarding for me.
St. John's is different because of the community environment. St. Johns feels like home. The people on campus are very nice and encompass the values of St. John's.
My favorite memory as a Johnny was the winter carnival. It was great to take a break from studying and just relax with friends. Getting to see the fireworks and lighting of the Christmas tree and then having a midnight breakfast really helped me reduce some of the stress that I was feeling at the time.
