Why did you choose SJU?

I chose SJU because it was always my dream to come to New York City for some part of my life and what better way than college. Not only that, but I fell in love with the campus the moment after my first visit.

What's your favorite memory as a Johnny?

My favorite memory as a Johnny has to be my first in the city after moving in. Just being in the city with my friends and realizing that I am in a whole new world now and the opportunity is endless; it was the point that marked my start as a student here in one of the best cities in the world.

What makes SJU different?

First off, it has a campus in NYC which is one of its kind. Another big thing is the community that the students have here, everyone will hold the door open for you or say hi. Finally, the faculty is so dedicated to its students that it makes the learning experience here amazing and truely enjoyable.

How have you changed since becoming a Johnny?

I have grown so much as a person and opened up by getting involved in the various activities SJU has to offer.
