WHY SHE CHOSE HOLY CROSS “During an alumni interview, my interviewer talked about how 25 of his Holy Cross classmates had attended his wedding and that struck me as fantastic. When I visited, the community feel was unbelievable and Holy Cross alumni really do bleed purple.”

WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Immersing myself into the Holy Cross culture. I want to be really involved while challenging myself academically and meeting different people.”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “I want prospective students to understand everyday life at the College. During my college process I really wanted a taste of what was to come in the next year, and by blogging I can help those who are going through the same thing I was going through just last year. I hope they can get a better sense of what Holy Cross is like through the blog!”
