John Carroll has offered me many great opportunities. After my first week at school I fell in love with the atmosphere. Being from Chicago I was worried that I would not be able to visit home often, but once getting to campus I didn’t want to be anywhere but JCU! I have become very involved on campus and have met incredible people through different organizations. Being a part of the Arrupe Scholars Program and Greek Life (Kappa Alpha Theta), I have had the opportunity to serve others and reach my goal of making an impact on the world. Other leadership opportunities such as serving on the Autism Speaks board and leading immersion trips have also helped me see the world in a new light.

I am proud to say that John Carroll has provided me with my home away from home, and I hope it can do the same for you!
