St. John’s undergraduate Sylke Lesinski ’18C earned recognition for excellence in creative writing at the Staten Island Borough President’s Young Writers Showcase—the finale of the Young Writers Roundtable, a year-long academic program that celebrates student writers throughout the borough.
It was a time for joyful celebration and thoughtful reflection as the University acknowledged the generosity of its leadership donors and thanked them for their exceptional support during the current fiscal year.
The Law School’s graduating class of 2014 had an impressive 90% overall employment rate, as measured by the American Bar Association last month. Marking a steady upward trajectory over the last few years, this was a 4% increase from 2013 and places St. John’s fourth in the state, right behind NYU, Columbia, and Cornell, on this key success measure.
St. John’s President, Conrado (Bobby) Gempesaw, Ph.D., and The Most Rev. David O’Connell, C.M., Bishop of Trenton, NJ, will serve as Commencement Speakers for the Staten Island and Queens ceremonies, respectively.
