    "I ultimately want to help people. As a student here, I feel like I am part of a bigger picture. SJC allows me to have opportunities to thrive as a student, share my talents and be involved on campus and with internships.'
  • Faculty member Quincy Lehr '00

    "For a small school we are able to offer a surprisingly large variety of courses both for our own history majors and the campus as a whole. I not only get to know those who specialize in history, but really a good cross-section of the student body."
