It is with great pride and pleasure that we can explain how St. Bonaventure University positively impacted our son’s life during his college career and, now, during his life in the workforce.
Our son, Matt, graduated from Bona’s in May 2012. He had many choices for his college education and it was a hard decision for him to make back in the spring of 2008. What made St. Bonaventure stand out was how comfortable he felt the moment he stepped onto the beautiful campus for his tour. While on the tour, Matt realized he liked the size of the campus and its residence halls, the variety of majors that were offered, and SBU’s proximity to Holiday Valley for snowboarding. And, St. Bonaventure was just far enough away from home (2 hours) so there would be no chance of us just “popping in” to see him.
Because of SBU’s engaging community atmosphere, Matt was actually able to have an identity – right from the first week. After high school, kids pretty much have to start over. St. Bonaventure made Matt’s transition easy. He held the position of Class President for four years, played intramural sports, received personal attention from professors when struggling in class, participated in social events and made good friends who he will have for the rest of his life.
During Matt’s St. Bonaventure career, we only got bits and pieces of information about his world because sharing lots of detail was not really his style (and let’s face it - he’s a guy…lol). What we can tell you is that he left home a boy unsure of what he wanted to do in life, uncertain about what to be involved in and just hoping he picked the right place to invest in his future. He graduated from St. Bonaventure a young man filled with confidence, compassion and integrity.
Matt earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and now works for Tom James Company in Atlanta, Ga. Our hope for Matt was that he would attain a great education, make wonderful memories and use his degree to find a job and begin the joy of working and giving back to his community. We believe that Matt’s experiences at St. Bonaventure University made our hope a reality.
We wish you peace in this important college decision. We encourage you to visit the beautiful St. Bonaventure campus and to see why we feel St. Bonaventure was well worth the investment.
