Jimmy is involved in: Wilderness Adventure Club, Resident Adviser Program, Camp Kesem Student Leader, Learning Community Peer Mentoring
“Being a peer mentor means making an impact on the students around me and relating
with them in a way that is unique. I get to help them through struggles and be there
“One highlight of volunteering at SLU’s Camp Kesem, which supports kids through their parents’ cancer, was the Messy Olympics. The campers got the chance to cover me and other counselors with chocolate, bananas, paint, shaving cream and watermelon.”
Physical Therapy at SLU
“What sets SLU's physical therapy program apart from other physical therapy programs is the inclusion of Jesuit values — and of course the amazing faculty!"
