Holy Cross gave me an incredible education. Because it is a liberal arts school, I was able to participate in the renowned Pre-Medical program while studying music, and still have the background to apply for the program I am in now at Boston College where I obtained my RN license in 11 months and am one semester away from finishing my master's in nursing. I also had incredible opportunities musically - I sang at Lincoln Center and at the Vatican in Rome. In contrast, I am not thrilled with Boston College as a graduate school.
I brag to my friends that my school is one of the top academic, small liberal art colleges in Forbes magazine. It is one of the most friendliest campus with an award-winning Orientation program. In addition to having successful alumni like Jon Favreu, the Chief speechwriter of Obama and Supreme Court Justice, Clarence Thomas.
To an extent. I am very proud of the school that I go to. I am very happy at the College of the Holy Cross and I do not hide it.
