Favorite Thing About St. John’s

I like the diverse, lively and always welcoming campus culture and the host of college and community activities aiming to foster friendships, full-inclusion, and intercultural understanding amongst all SJU students.

Advice You Give SJU Applicant

Our student body (and staff and faculty) come from every imaginable background and have the widest possible variety of experiences, interests and skills. The one thing that our Jonnies should never miss out is the opportunity to develop their intellectual curiosity and enthusiasm, and the potential to get the most out of what a metropolitan community has to offer.

Favorite Movie

Shawshank Redemption

Favorite City in the world

Chicago and Shanghai, for their gourmet food, friendly people, and breathtaking river views.  

Favorite Vacation Spot

Anywhere in the world that I have never been before.

What do you like about living in the NY metro area
