"Winning the Leadership Scholarship gave me the sense that there was a purpose for everything I worked for in high school.“

In his winning essay, Patrick wrote about Courage.

My essay had a lot to do with my sister [who] has cerebral palsy — It was about her courage to get through everything in life. I look up to her to be just as courageous [as she is].”

Why DeSales?

“I like the whole atmosphere here; everyone knows each other. When I came here the first time, everyone was so welcoming. The campus is beautiful. My mom also went here.”

Fun Fact?

"I drove my boat to work this summer. I live with my grandparents in the summer in Ocean City, N.J. My mom has a tiny boat from 1969. I work at a deck bar and it’s on the water. I didn’t want to get stuck in traffic so I just hopped in the boat."

Advice for applicants who are worried about the interview process?

“It was very relaxed. There was no pressure; everyone was welcoming.
