We asked Theresa:

Why did you choose to attend a Catholic college/university?
I chose a faithfully Catholic school in order to be in a community that cares not just for each others minds and hearts, but most importantly for each others souls. I want friends to go to daily mass with, teachers that know the Truth, and an education that does not contradict the teachings of the Catholic Church. 

What aspect of your college/university are you most excited about?
I am most excited to be a part of an authentically Catholic community.

What one tip about the college application process would you share with seniors or their parents?
It is understandably hard and stressful at times, but please remember that God has you in His hands no matter the outcome.
