“When I came here as a freshman in 2010, I never knew the family I would gain from Saint Vincent.  Through roommates and friends, and all the organizations I belong to, I found the family that I wanted to call my own. When receiving my undergraduate degree in 2014, I was nervous to lose everything that I knew.  I was fortunate enough to receive the graduate coordinator position for Campus Life which let me pass on my traditions and family atmosphere.  Now, two years later, I am faced with the same dilemma, leaving my family at Saint Vincent. While I look forward to new and exciting adventures, I will never forget the bonds and supports that I have made here. When asked what the hardest part will be when leaving, I can only look back and think of the family I found through professors, advisers and students. I know that they are only a call away, but leaving the place I call home and the people I call family is the hardest part.”

“With graduation just days away, I can’t believe how fast my time at SVC has gone. My biggest regret is not getting the chance to meet all of the great people here at SVC on a deeper level. I was always busy doing meaningful things, studying and working, and I don’t regret any of that, but I would enjoy the opportunity to truly meet and talk to everyone here. If I could, I would like to sit down with each person one-on-one, share a meal with them and thank them for everything they did, even if in a small way, to help me throughout college. Saint Vincent College is a special community and I’m glad to have had the opportunity to experience great memories here.”

“I chose Saint Vincent for its excellent bioinformatics program and I wasn’t quite aware that it was a liberal arts school. It was sort of accidental. Saint Vincent helps you become well-rounded with its liberal arts core curriculum. I feel like I am much more well-rounded now than if I had gone to a more technical university where you only take science courses. I don’t think another college or university could have provided the same sort of expansion to the greater good and greater humanity as Saint Vincent. It has only added to my experience.”
