I’m Julia, and I love Holy Cross!
It’s a beautiful place filled with warm and brilliant people, and though you might think Admissions folks are scary, after working here for over a year, I can assure you we don’t go around scratching our beards and glaring at each other through thick bifocals. Come to think of it, I’ve never seen anyone sneer. Not even once. We’re actually all really nice…and a little nerdy.
My favorite part of my job is meeting prospective students and hearing their stories. What are you passionate about? What makes you come alive? Think about it, and then come tell me about it while I’m on the road in California (Northern and Southern) and New York City. Do you really love, Italy, Jane Austen, or the Patriots? Have you been on a mission to Central America, or to Bridge club with your grandma? Have you had any great falls lately? We all have stories…they’re what make us human. Cultivating your stories will make your essay writing and interviewing experiences that much easier, and that much more fun. So please, don’t be afraid to try a few of them out on us.
I grew up here in the GREAT city of Worcester. After college, I took my liberal arts degree out to Los Angeles to try my hand at Television and Film Production. The majority of my time was spent casting Documentary and Reality shows, and as fun and exciting as that was, I had a persistent itch to do something a little more helpful. I ended up moving back to my beautiful hometown, and am thrilled to be a part of the Holy Cross Admissions team.
Outside of the office, I like to get outside, hang out with my dog, take pictures, listen to music, watch The Office, and root for New England sports teams.
Once again, we’re all looking forward to hearing about what makes you, uniquely you.
