Jack Downing '15

Major: Political Science and Media Studies Journalism and Digital Arts
Hometown: Ossipee, NH

Like many students, Jack is piecing together his Saint Michael's tuition with a combination of scholarships, loans (public and private), and family contributions. Despite knowing that he'll be paying off loans for many years to come, he believes that Saint Michael's is worth the investment.

"My favorite aspect of Saint Michael's is the sense of community. There is truly a palpable feeling of togetherness among the students and professors. They are always available for meetings and are willing to go above and beyond to help their students. They want to see us succeed and provide the perfect environment to do so." more
