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.
Twin sisters and SJU seniors, Marisa and Tera Egan of King of Prussia, will both attend graduate programs in the medical field. Marisa will study cellular and molecular biology at the University of Pennsylvania, and Tera will study biomedical sciences at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Court Simmons ’18 won’t walk across the commencement stage with the rest of the Class of 2018 on Saturday, May 19. The interdisciplinary health services major, who completed studies in December 2017, says it’s simple: “I’m not done yet.”
