College Life Rating

SJU is definitely a niche school, meaning once you find yours, you'll be a happy camper. I felt bad for those who didn't. I was lucky enough to find mine and loved those who I found within it. I love that the Hawks are Roman Catholic based, but they're not abrasive nor judgmental. SJU is always criticized for its spirit of inclusion, but I always have and always will defend it. The Jesuits, staff, faculty and students certainly embody the spirit of Christ and his mission. I was proud to be a part of Campus Ministry and social justice while I was a student. Some of my best memories are from Wolfington.
