NAME Meaghan Body ’17
HOMETOWN Dover, Mass.
WHY SHE CHOSE HOLY CROSS “Growing up in Massachusetts, I had heard about Holy Cross and its reputation for academic excellence. When I began the college search process, my parents encouraged me to look at schools of all different types and sizes. Thinking of the strong Jesuit values and small size, I became more interested in Holy Cross, and made a visit during February vacation of my junior year. All it took was an information session and tour for me to fall in love with Holy Cross, the campus, and everything the College had to offer.”
ACTIVITIES Admissions Outreach, Student Government Association
HER FAVORITE SPOT ON CAMPUS “The Science Café! My favorite sandwich is the chicken parm naan (highly recommend it!) and it’s a great place for my friends to hang out and do a little studying.”
WHY SHE’S INSTAGRAMMING “As students consider Holy Cross as a potential college choice, it is important for them to gain insight into what day-to-day life is like on this beautiful campus. Through my Instagram photos, I hope to capture the wonderful energy at Holy Cross, so prospective students can see how great it is to be a student and member of the Holy Cross community.”
