Jaime – Yorktown, VA

Yorktown, VA

As I began my search for colleges, I knew that I wanted to go to an institution that was deeply cemented in the Catholic faith because I wanted to maintain my relationship with God while at the same time pursuing the major I had desired to go into. When I had discovered Saint Michael’s College through the book award I had received, I knew God had answered my call. Saint Michael’s College presents its mission to “contribute through higher education to the enhancement of the human person and the advancement of human culture in the light of the Catholic faith.” God will be present within my studies and He will also influence my journey throughout college. The institution also provides a myriad of activities and programs that I want to pursue, like Saint Michael’s Sleepless Knights, a co-ed acappella group, or the Varsity Volleyball and Tennis team. I want to continue my career in medicine and Saint Michael’s College offers a pre-medical track with certain courses catered to a future medical career. The more I learn about Saint Michael’s College, the more that I know I have found the place where I could begin my process towards the medical field and also soon call home.
