Two years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life. I decided to attend St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia and I’ve loved every second of it. There are many reasons I love St. Joseph’s, but here are my top ten favorite reasons.
10. The School Spirit
Although we do not have a football team our school spirit is unsurpassable. Our amazing basketball team always packs a full house and the games are always a great time.
Barbelin, or Barb, is one of the most iconic places on campus, and for good reason. This gorgeous building stuns me every day and has the most beautiful courtyard for studying on sunny spring days.
8. The Hawk
We have the best mascot. The Hawk Will Never Die, what else can I say?
It all started with two harmless emails from St. Joseph’s administration making announcements to the student body and ended with an email chain of over 200 emails sent to the entire student body. Students were “equally annoyed and laughing hysterically,” as one student replied to the student body email chain.
The chain included everything from St. Joseph’s jokes, memes, to links to mixtapes. One student said, One student even advertised that she was looking for a date to her spring formal this semester and to “apply within.” Many people got annoyed with the chain email that started around 11:30pm and continued until the next morning. The email that started it all was, “Congrats homie,” when a student congratulated the newly tenured faculty.
“Reply All” also showed school pride for the school that just won the A10 Championship in Basketball. Students gave shoutouts to their favorite players and even took a jab at the school’s sports rival, Villanova.
Many were surprised that the St. Joseph’s email system did not shut down or freeze with the large stream of emails.
Do you know of any sororities in Philadelphia? Well we know some, and Saint Joseph’s Alpha Omicron Pi is one of the best in the area. If you haven’t heard of Alpha Omicron Pi you better get your act together. They have been around for a very long time and really know how to have a great time.
The ladies in Alpha Omicron Pi at Saint Joseph’s University look like so much fun! They sure know how to have a good time and make each other laugh!
