Why did you choose Holy Cross? "I chose Holy Cross over other schools because of its welcoming culture. Once you visit, something about the school makes you feel like you’re at home. The college itself is very beautiful and the financial aid help was also the best out of all."

What are you most looking forward to this year? "I am most looking forward to building a great group of friends while also doing very well in my studies. Going out and exploring the city of Worcester and Boston is also an option, due to the various resources on campus like daily shuttles. I also want to be part of various internships while attending college. Another area of interest is the Maymester program, a month long study abroad program in the middle of May, instead of a whole semester."
