Tour Guide at St. John's University
Class of 2019
Hometown: Dallas, TX
I chose SJU because the sense of community from the students and faculty was comfortable and inviting. The environment and incredible diversity made me feel like I could easily make this place my home and that I could accomplish anything I set my mind to.
SJU is a place for every type of student and offers endless support for whatever career or path you decide to adventure on in the future. SJU also has a beautiful college campus that benefits the student's concentration and the greatest city in the nation just 20 minutes away to remind you of the amazing opportunities at your fingertips.
I honestly have changed not only as a student, but as a Catholic. I have a developed a great passion for my major and learned what it takes to be successful in classes. As a Catholic, my faith has been strengthened and renewed because just after a month of coming to SJU I decided I wanted to be confirmed at St. Thomas More Church.
My favorite memory would be the Spring Carnival that takes place each Spring. The Carnival is such a huge fun event on the great lawn and brings everyone together as a community so easily. The event gets rid of all stress from classes and finals and reminds you to enjoy life as a Johnny.
