HOMETOWN Wilton, Conn.

AREAS OF STUDY Undeclared

WHY SHE CHOSE HOLY CROSS “I never imagined that I would go to college here. I didn’t even want to visit, but my mom said that we should check it out. As soon as I saw the beautiful campus, I looked at my mom and knew that I would be applying here. The real reason I wanted to apply, however, was because once I started meeting students, I was so impressed by all that they had done. I loved the warm, community feeling on campus. The school motto, ‘men and women for others,’ really stuck out to me. Holy Cross isn’t just a college but a place for its students to grow. I applied early decision, got in, and never looked back. I love it here.”

ACTIVITIES Campus Activities Board, Arts and Outings Committee, Concert Committee, Student Programs for Urban Development (Abby’s House), Admissions greeter

WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Meeting new people, getting to know my professors and taking interesting courses. I also want to get more involved with the SPUD program because I think it is very important to give back to the community we live in. This is one of the reasons why I wanted to come to Holy Cross.”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “I want to share my love for Holy Cross and my Holy Cross adventures with you!”
