"There are experiences here that would not have been available to me if I attended another school, such as the time when I sat on the Great Lawn and watched 10 minutes of fireworks at the Winter Carnival. That is where this photo was taken. I was stressed over finals and a personal situation, but that evening my mood brightened—I am sure you can see that clearly by my smile. Sometimes you get so caught up in your routine that you forget to just take a moment to enjoy life. Choosing to attend St. John’s University is easily one of my best decisions.”

St. John’s truly shows me the world!
