Where is your favorite place to study on campus?

My favorite place to study on campus is Café la Verna. I'm able to study on really comfortable couches, and it's especially nice when the fireplace is on.

What is the best piece of advice you received when looking at colleges?

The best piece of advice I got was also the simplest: go with your gut! While many schools "checked the boxes" for me, every time that I stepped onto Bonaventure's campus, I knew that I could see it being my future home.

What is your favorite restaurant in Olean/Allegany?

My favorite restaurant is Union Whiskey; they have lots of great vegan and vegetarian options and have special deals during Bona's games.

What is your favorite Bonaventure memory?

My favorite memory is dancing at the Bona's v. VCU basketball game with the SBU Dance Team. I was really able to fully appreciate how passionate alumni, current students, and staff are about Bona's.
