I came to St. Joseph's University because of a wonderful scholarship I was given, which allowed to me obtain a high quality education. The University has numerous opportunities to get involved on campus, including clubs, work study, student organizations, and internships. The students at St. Joseph's University are very accepting and open-minded to any differences.
