How have you changed since becoming a Johnny?

My worldview has widened to a huge extent! The diversity of people and ideas at SJU is almost at a crazy level... I've learned how to work with other people and I've come to appreciate that the differences between people create a learning opportunity for me every day.

What makes SJU different?

SJU is in a major city with all of the opportunities that that brings, but you don't have to give up the classic "campus feel" with a quad and a close-knit community where people know and care about one another.

What's your favorite memory as a Johnny?

My favorite memory is definitely hiking an active volcano in Sicily with sixty of my closest friends and our tour guide Sandro during the Italian spring break trip while I was studying abroad. #MountEtna2016!!

Why did you choose SJU?

I knew I wanted to study something pretty specific (Forensic Psychology) and SJU has a great program for that, including professors who are pioneers in the field. From the beginning, I had almost unlimited opportunities to study abroad, which was also important to me. I've been able to get involved and build relationships with people who can help me throughout my career.
