Jimmy Buck, Transfer Student

"After attending the University of Minnesota for nearly two years, I decided that a smaller college would be a better option for me. I wanted a much more personalized education, and the smaller class sizes were important to me as well. Also, the football program here is extremely respected, and I am able to play for an annually top-ranked team in the nation.

The community here is unmatched. Not only am I part of it, but I feel like I have an impact here everyday. I know that I'm not just a number at Saint John's."
