My favorite part about SJU is the location! SJU is such a special gem in Philadelphia that allows students to have a picturesque college experience, but have access to a major metropolitan area!
My #1 tip for your college search is to choose your school for yourself. Obviously take into consideration what your family and friends say, but ultimately, these four years belong to you! Which college t-shirt are you most excited to wear? The answer to that question will tell you a lot!
If I could take any class at SJU I'd take American Sign Language! I did not have the opportunity to take ASL in my college and I think that it is such a unique class that a lot of students love! I would be really interested to try it out as well.
When in Philadelphia, definitely visit Reading Terminal Market! It is a foodie's dream come true! Whether you are craving fresh baked goods, Philadelphia classics, produce, or international cuisine, Reading Terminal can provide! A Philly staple and one of my favorite places since I was a little girl.
When I'm not at work you can find me down the shore! Cold or hot, winter or summer, New Jersey beaches are just a short drive from Philly and I love to go any time of year! I absolutely love beaches and another perk of Philadelphia is that we have a ton of beaches just around the corner!
