Through copious opportunities Saint Rose provided, I stand behind the idea that “from whom much is given, much is expected.” I have been fortunate enough to have walked away from the College more knowledgeable and equipped to be able to provide for the community I will one day impact. The great friends I’ve made, and the people I’ve interacted with while at Saint Rose, have helped me get to where I am today.
