WHY HE CHOSE HOLY CROSS "I knew I wanted to attend a smaller college, and Holy Cross impressed me with its numerous opportunities for student involvement. Having attended a Jesuit high school, I was also conscious of the rigorous academic challenge that awaited me here, and I simply could not resist this great opportunity."

WHAT HE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO "As great as my first year was, I’m excited to make sophomore year even better. I will be taking more classes in my chosen areas of study, which is obviously quite exciting. I’m also looking forward to expanding my extracurricular horizons with the COPE Program, as well as continuing as a sports radio broadcaster with WCHC 88.1. Lastly, I am looking forward to having a great year with my friends, especially after a long summer apart."

WHY HE’S BLOGGING "I found blogging to be an enjoyable experience during my first year, particularly as a means of documenting my experiences. I hope to convey what makes Holy Cross so special to me, and encourage  others to pursue such wonderful opportunities."
