What is your favorite part of college?
My favorite part about college is the classes! I have a full schedule, but they are great classes. Also, a couple of my professors are graduate students, so they are young, which really helps make the classroom laid back and fun.
What do you miss most about Sacred Heart?
I miss CSH a lot! I will never forget how comfortable I was with everything at Sacred Heart. I miss my teachers and I miss my uniform! I already ran out of clothing options.
Do you keep in touch with your Sacred Heart friends?
I talk to my Sacred Heart friends just about every day! I miss them so much, so we talk all day, everyday. I was worried about losing touch with my best friends, but that is clearly not the case! If you make an effort, you will most definitely stay friends.
What activities are you involved in at college?
I am involved in a couple of different sport’s business clubs on campus. I decided to really focus on my school work for the first semester, until I really get a grip on time management, so I did not go overboard with joining clubs!
What is an important item to bring to college?
I am a commuter student, so I am not sure what to bring to college! I will say, that being a commuter is actually amazing, because I get the best of both worlds. I stay on campus with friends overnight when I want to, but I really like being at home. It keeps me focused! (So it’s not as bad as it seems)

What is your favorite part of college?
College is wonderful so far. I absolutely love it! Having extra free time throughout the day is probably one of the things I appreciate the most. Instead of having classes from 8 am -4 pm straight, they are broken up throughout the day giving you more time to relax, study, hang out with friends, get work done, or participate in clubs!
What do you miss most about Sacred Heart?
“What do you miss most about Sacred Heart?” is honestly the hardest question for me to answer. For someone who loved Sacred Heart as much as I did, this is a tough one! With that said though, I might have to answer with the somewhat typical and predictable response: the community. At Villanova, there are several things around campus that remind me of CSH, but you will never be able to find girls who are as loving and caring as your classmates at Sacred Heart! Be sure to appreciate the dedicated teachers and amazing staff at CSH while you can!
Do you keep in touch with your Sacred Heart friends?
Of course! I text my friends every single day and a group of us video chat every week (thank you google plus) which is a ton of fun! I must say though that it is so nice to hear people’s voice on the phone. My friends and I call each other at random points in the day, even if it’s just for 5 minutes just to say hi!
What activities are you involved in at college?
I am involved in an organization called SNAP, which stands for “Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania.” This club hosts numerous events on campus (one of them being blood drives) and in the surrounding Philadelphia community. It’s such a great club to be involved in because we partake in service events, social events, and can attend lectures that are geared towards the nursing profession. I am also in the Relay for Life club and am on the event-planning committee for the Breast Cancer Awareness club. In addition, I volunteer with the nursing admissions committee at open houses and special events!
What is an important item to bring to college?
I brought a door-stop to school and it was so handy during the first few weeks when we were trying to meet everyone on our floor! If your door is open, most people will come in and introduce themselves so it’s a great way to make friends! I also strongly suggest bringing tupperwear and utensils! If you’re in a rush from the cafeteria, you can throw something in a tupperwear before you head off to class. Most dorms have a ton of wall space so be sure to print out a ton of pictures! (You can make really cool collages on poster board through places like Kinkos or even CVS!)

What is your favorite part of college?

My favorite part of college is that you are in class so little during the day compared to the 8-hour days in high school, so you actually have time to do what you want and are able to get your work done.
What do you miss most about Sacred Heart?
 What I miss most about Sacred Heart are the faculty and staff because you will never find  a group of people like them who care that much about you and are there for you every step of the way.
Do you keep in touch with your Sacred Heart friends?
I do keep in touch with my Sacred Heart friends and Skype with them as much as I can. I cannot wait to see some of them at Thanksgiving!
What activities are you involved in at college?
At college I am a part of the Women in Business Club and I am joining the yearbook staff. Next semester I hope to rush for a sorority.
 What is an important item to bring to college?
The most important thing to bring is a Swiffer because it is crazy how dirty your floor can get.
