NAME Thavanvotey (Votey) Luong ’19

HOMETOWN Lowell, Mass.

STUDIES English major in the Health Professions Advising Program

WHY SHE CHOSE HOLY CROSS “I chose to spend the next four years on Mount St. James because Holy Cross will not only provide me the best education and help me reach my highest potential, but it will also be there on the sidelines cheering me on as I prepare for a professional career.”

ACTIVITIES Student Government Association, Student Programs for Urban Development (SPUD), Wheeler House Council, American Medical Student Association (AMSA), Advocating Student Interest in Asia (ASIA), Developing and Educating South-Asian Ideologies (DESI)

WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “I’m looking forward to new adventures and opportunities at Holy Cross to continue developing me as a person.”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “Holy Cross student blogs made a huge impact during my application process and on my decision to come here this fall. As prospective students are actively searching for a college that will not only provide them with an education but a place they can proudly call their “home away from home,” I want to help them discover our beautiful and supportive Holy Cross community. I want to share what it is like to bleed purple!”
