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 much of a passion alumni and current students and staff have for this school.

What is your favorite restaurant in Olean/Allegany?

My favorite restaurant is Rafi's Platter; their chicken curry reminds me of my mom's homecooked food. Their mussels are also amazing!

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

Although I got a lot of great advice when choosing between schools, the best piece of advice 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.

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 turned on.
