I really cherish each and every friend I have made so far, and all of our daily adventures together. I have met so many different and amazing people, it's almost hard to remember what life was like before them! Every day, I learn something new from those around me, and I always have people to turn to, to laugh with and to smile with. Having a close knit college experience where you get to live with some of your best friends, yet there's more down the hall and even more just a few floors below you is something so valuable.
When looking for colleges, I wanted to be close to New York City, but still wanted a real campus experience and that sense of community. Looking for all that, I came across Iona. I can honestly say that I knew where I would end up the minute I stepped foot on this campus. The atmosphere was so friendly, and the people were so welcoming - I knew it was the place for me.
Volunteering. In high school, I was involved in a community service club - something I really loved doing. So far at Iona, I've been able to participate in quite a few volunteer opportunities. In the upcoming semesters, I'm looking forward to getting involved even more, and taking part in the amazing mission trips and projects Iona has to offer!
The "Harry Potter" room in the Ryan Library! I love going there to really focus on myself and my school work. It's such a calming and productive environment.
