Saint Joseph’s University proudly unveiled its inaugural 30under30 class, a distinguished group of alumni under 30 years of age, who are embracing the University’s mission in their own lives. This remarkable cohort showcases the transformative power of a Saint Joseph’s education through personal excellence, professional success and engaged citizenship.

As a Jesuit higher education institution, Saint Joseph’s inspires its students to be leaders in their communities and industries. To accomplish this, the University continues to evolve and grow to meet the demands of the next generation of students who will shape the world.

“When I first reviewed this 30under30 class, one overarching commonality jumped out: the intellect, confidence, preparation and compassion that these graduates demonstrate as a result of their education,” said Cheryl A. McConnell, PhD, president of Saint Joseph’s. “This personal and professional development can be hard to quantify, but we see it manifest in our tremendous outcomes.”

According to a study, 10 years after graduating, Saint Joseph’s alumni earn salaries that rank in the top 2.5% in the nation. Beyond career growth and success, Saint Joseph’s graduates also display a lifelong passion for service and a commitment to impacting the greater good.
