I’ve been working in Admissions since my freshman year at Holy Cross. Each year I’ve become more involved with the Admissions office from being a greeter to now being a member of the Outreach Executive Board recently accepted as a tour guide and possibly a senior interviewer.
I’ve done a ton of planning with the Outreach Eboard and the Admissions faculty to help make this open house (on April 22) the best yet. Its not just an open house, its campus wide lets celebrate Holy Cross day. Every accepted student interested in Holy Cross should definitely come!
Incase you are having a hard time deciding on whether or not to pick Holy Cross, heres a little bit of my reasoning when i was a perspective student and what I have learned since being a student here!
The reasons I chose Holy Cross (as a perspective student myself):
-great alumni connections for possible jobs
-the academics are rigorous and respected
-the small school size (under 3,000)
-the location in Worcester: 40 minutes from my home, Boston, and Providence
Now that I have attended Holy Cross for 3 years I can say Holy Cross has exceeded my expectations in EVERY SINGLE WAY possible!! Here is what I love about HC now:
-the small school size is the perfect amount of students. You see familiar faces, but you do not know everyone
-school spirit on this campus is amazing. Everyone is super friendly. I always meet new friends at sporting events, cultural nights, in the Hogan center.
-the pre-business program: HC has afforded me the opportunity to have three internships!! This summer I am on to my dream internship at the marketing firm Mullen in Boston. Mullen accepted me out of 1000 applicants!!
-the small class size means individual attention from your professors. I can’t stress enough how invaluable this attention is. Makes class so much more enjoyable because you can build an actual relationship with your professor.
Anyways I could go on forever about Holy Cross, but I’ll keep it short. I can tell you you will not be disappointed if you choose Holy Cross 🙂
