Ryan Keller '17
Every day is a new adventure at Holy Family University. I'm always learning something new about my field of study. At Holy Family University, I had the chance to study abroad in Finland and Sweden. That trip was my first time out of the country. It truly was an incredible experience and simply life-changing.
