“Choosing the STM was never a tough choice. I knew it was the right option for me from the day that I saw the STM advertised at a grad school fair my junior year of undergrad. From that moment, it was just a matter of when. Coming off a year of service, I was fearful stepping back into what I perceived to be an academic bubble; however, I’ve had the exact opposite experience. I’ve been able to apply my studies back to my experience as a Jesuit Volunteer and into my current work as a Graduate Minister in Boston College Campus Ministry. In addition to all of the opportunities the STM has to offer, being part of a fruitful community that supports and challenges you to go deeper makes the experience all the more life-giving.”
