Alumnus at Iona College

I chose to attend Iona because of the community! When I experienced my first tour, my tour guide was saying hello to everyone we walked by. I could tell that Iona was a close knit community and three years later that still holds true. I also chose Iona because it was close enough to go home if and when I needed to but far enough away where I was able to experience living on my own.
My most memorable experience at Iona was going on the Kairos retreat! I went into it not knowing what to expect and had experienced everything I hoped for and more. Through Kairos I created so many relationships that I cherish and restored my faith.
My favorite place on campus is the hill. I love sitting on the hill with my friends once the weather gets warmer and being able to relax in between classes there!
I feel that I have moved the world through my observation and student teaching hours. I have spent many hours in different classes getting to create a relationship with the students and watch them grow throughout the year and in some way or another help them to be better versions of themselves.
