“I’ve had the chance to be both a little sister and a big sister for two years each while being up here. Plus, it’s cool to have a brother in the monastery. So I guess that ‘being an O’Reilly’ means to me that I’m never alone, and that’s fundamentally what a family is all about.”

“My favorite Saint Vincent memory together would be every time I watch you play lacrosse. I like to cheer you on and I’ve been watching you play for a long time now and to see you win is always nice, too.” 

-Kaura Bassegio

“I would say that my favorite Saint Vincent memory together would be move-in day freshman year because it was a completely different experience. I knew she was going to be right down the hall from me and it was just completely different to know that the next four years we would be a lot closer than we were before.”

-Brendon Masten

“How could I ever possibly pick one favorite moment? I feel like every single day I spent abroad is among my favorite days of my life. The biggest attraction of Ireland to me was the scenery. Every single time I walked outside, no matter where I was, I was just awestruck by how beautiful the country is. I don't know I've ever felt closer to God than I did in Ireland looking at the beauty of everything he's created. Studying abroad and seeing all of these things really makes you realize how big the world is, and how little you are and how insignificant the things you worry about are. There's so much more out there.”

“I think my biggest challenge of being at Saint Vincent is being so far away from home. My parents live about five hours away, sometimes it's tough being up here. For example, we had a scrimmage yesterday and we didn’t play too well and those are times where I really want to talk to my parents and be around them, but you kind of just have to toughen up and I think that’s what makes Saint Vincent so great. The camaraderie here, everyone is so close and it’s such a tight-knit campus that it’s kind of a blessing in disguise not having your family around but being able to have your second family, your teammates, your friends, the Saint Vincent population.”
-Charlie Russo, senior lacrosse player
