At Saint Joseph's University, I have found a home away from home. The faculty, coaches, trainers, and my teammates have thus far made me feel so welcome because of the tight-knit community that's been created. I am so thankful for my experience and I cannot wait for my next two years."

I learned an unbelievable amount in less than a year and discovered a new passion of mine: East Asian Religion. I would not have been able to write my thesis or grow as a scholar as much as I did without my thesis advisor, Dr. Aaron Reich."
