WHY SHE CHOSE HOLY CROSS “My parents and my college counselor really encouraged me to make a campus visit while I was seeing other colleges in the area. Once I visited campus, I fell in love with the friendly atmosphere and community. It was a school where I could see both aspects, living and learning, of the college experience.”
ACTIVITIES Ballroom Dance Team, French Club, Mulledy House Council, liturgical ministries and music ministries
WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Meeting new people, exploring the surrounding New England area, and making Holy Cross my new home!”
WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “During my entire admissions process, I found the student blogs to be extremely helpful in giving a sneak peek into what it would be like to be a Holy Cross student. In the end, these blogs factored heavily into my decision; I hope I can help someone else with their decision.”
