Why I love Holy Cross:

I am in love with Holy Cross because of the vast number of opportunities that have been offered to me on this campus, and because the entire Holy Cross community has made my education a true living and learning experience. Coming from over 3,000 miles away, I arrived to Mount St. James during move-in, August 2008, not knowing a single person, and I was immediately embraced by the students and faculty on The Hill. I’m excited by the awesome faculty (Midnight breakfast study session during finals week? Thank you Professor Hooper!), the small class sizes, and especially the fact that we’re a solely undergraduate college. I appreciate that as a community we are all working together toward our goals – for now, and for well beyond our four short years here on campus.
