Favorite Spot/Memory: “I know it is cliche, but my favorite spot on campus has got to be the Quad. I have some of the most wonderful memories from college! I loved living with my girlfriends on Milford my senior year and studying abroad my junior year. Sophomore year was probably my favorite year (in Millor)–you are right in the thick of it!”

“One of my favorite memories was seeing my college boyfriend (and the next year my best friend) give the Millor Orator speech at graduation on the Quad. I was not lucky enough to have my graduation on the quad, so I really cherish how beautiful the two ceremonies were the years before me. It gave it special meaning to see people I care about so much address their class!”


“ENJOY! JCU is a wonderful place–soak up every minute of it. We often rush through life trying to get to the next phase. I hope you cherish every minute at JCU. Take advantage of every opportunity you have–the more you put in the more you get out!”

“Don’t be scared of the real world, it isn’t so bad. JCU prepared us VERY well! Every phase of life is exciting–enjoy it wherever you are now in your journey!”
