Saint Joseph's University was founded by the Jesuits — visionary Catholic priests and educators who prioritized social justice, the pursuit of excellence, service to others, and the development of the whole person, or, cura personalis. One of only 28 universities and colleges nationwide exemplifying this 500-year- old Jesuit tradition, SJU offers each of its students an educational experience that will hone their skills, expand their knowledge, grow their faith and strengthen their character.
“I knew that I loved St. Joes; I knew that I loved Campus Ministry and everything that I was doing here, but something was missing,” says Castile. “And through reflection and talking with Fr. [Dan] Joyce and others, I realized what was missing, and what was really screaming from inside of me: that I needed to fulfill a higher calling.”
