Natalia CzajkowskaNatalia Czajkowska ’18
B.A. in Speech

“Being able to say that I graduated from SJC with a communication studies degree is definitely something I am proud of. The professors in the speech department became mentors that I looked up to because of their knowledge, dedication and enthusiasm for the field. As a current graduate student in a speech-language pathology program, I am incredibly grateful for how well my professors at SJC prepared me for this next chapter and for my future as a clinician. I could not have asked for a better undergraduate education!”

Kelly is a speech-language pathologist with the New York City Department of Education

“SJC helped me build connections with the Department of Education and other agencies, which helped me find a job straight out of graduate school. Thank you, SJC!” 

Danielle PolicaroDanielle Policaro ’19 
Speech Major, English Minor

"St. Joseph's College has so much to offer to its students. The communication studies curriculum has successfully prepared me for graduate school through the amazing opportunities it has given me. This includes an executive position in the NSSLHA club and an internship at Staten Island University Hospital's speech department. I have the pleasure of assisting speech pathologists in evaluating stroke patients with swallowing disorders. These moments strengthen my knowledge in the field and reassure me that this is the right career path for me."

Speech Major, Therapeutic Recreation Minor

"Without the knowledge and experiences gained from SJC, I never would have begun my current internship at Staten Island University Hospital.  SJC has aspired me to achieve a Masters of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology.  It has been the school’s companionship-based foundations that have pushed me forward in my own individual pursuits."
