The Committee on Admissions seeks to build a diverse class to meet the broad and disparate needs of the local, national and international community. Our first-year class not only varied by race, ethnicity, age, educational experience and geography, but also experience and talent.
Students from our entering class participated in medical missions across the globe, tutoring, mentoring, and coaching, all with the intent to serve others. Several have served in AmeriCorps, the Peace Corps, and Jesuit Volunteer Corps. Students in the entering class have been involved in the health and patient care fields as licensed emergency medical technicians, nurses, translators, certified nursing assistants, researchers, public health educators, and scribes, to name a few. Some have pursued other careers including the military, firefighting, and teaching, as well as founded organizations and non-profits. They also excel in non-academic areas including a variety of talents in athletics, music, and dance.
How will you contribute to this diversity in the future?
