New Graduate’s Passions: St. John’s, Performing Arts, and Service

Even before attending her first class, Sheila Kiernan ’22CCPS felt like she found a second home at St. John’s University. “One of the reasons why I loved St. John’s was because giving back to the community is so much a part of its mission. I liked the location—but I really liked the feel of the Queens, NY, campus and the University.”

Dual-Degree Student Served Internship as Liaison to Vatican at the UN

Peter’s faith guided him to St. John’s University. Four years later, it led him to the United Nations, where as an intern for the Mission of the Holy See, he helped to bring forward issues of Roman Catholic interest to the world’s largest international body.
