WHY HE CHOSE HOLY CROSS “Coming from a Jesuit high school, I knew I wanted to continue my Jesuit education and attend a liberal arts college. If that wasn’t enough of a reason to choose Holy Cross, walking around the campus gave me a feeling that I hadn’t experienced at any other school I visited. I knew I belonged at Holy Cross.”

HIS FAVORITE SPOT ON CAMPUS The Hart Center. Whether I am working out at the gym or watching a Holy Cross basketball game, the Hart Center is the perfect place to relieve stress and cheer on the Crusaders.”
