Maybe it was the moment you realized you were passionate about a new major. Or perhaps it was a silly moment shared with your best friend. Or the beginning of your relationship with your SJC Sweetheart.
For Cara Tromba Giannillo, who earned her degree in human relations from SJC Long Island in 1989, her favorite memory from St. Joseph’s College occurred after she graduated.
“I was so proud the day I hooded my son at graduation and he became part of the SJC alumni family,” Giannillo, a hospital school teacher, said in response to a questionnaire conducted by St. Joseph’s Office of Alumni Engagement in honor of ISJC Week.
Gabbi Battiloro’s favorite moment at St. Joseph’s occurred during her senior year.
“Dance club had been a big part of my four years at St. Joseph’s College, so being elected as vice president, and getting to share Dance Club with other students at events such as Club Fair, made my time here,” Battiloro ’14, who earned her bachelor’s degree in English, said.
“This photo is from my last club fair and with one of my best friends. It makes me smile every time I look at it, and it makes me wish we never had to adult,” Battiloro recalled.
Thanks for the Memories
Whether our alumni remembered a favorite class, the moment they met their best friend or future spouse, or their favorite place to hang out at the College, they all shared one thing in common: the memories they made at St. Joseph’s College will last them a lifetime.
