HELLO CLASS OF 2024!! Welcome to Hawk Hill! I am so glad that you have chosen to start your time at SJU with PSIP! The other leaders and I are so excited to meet you all and welcome you to campus. My name is Paul Koenig. I am a junior Political Science and Economics double major from right outside of Philadelphia in Oreland, PA. I began my time at St. Joe’s with a fantastic four days at PSIP. It was during those four days that I met like-minded friends, found a deep passion for service, and began to feel at home at SJU. It was because of my leaders and experiences at PSIP that I joined Weekly Service as a freshman, serving at the Sisters of Saint Joseph’s Welcome Center every Thursday. I then applied and participated in the Winter Immersion Program (WIP), engaging in a week-long immersion in El Salvador over winter break. It was through WIP that I came to understand what a “faith that does justice” is and the importance and beauty of immersion. I am now in my second year serving as a Peer Minister for the Winter Immersion Program. Outside of Campus Ministry, I am also a member of the Dean’s Leadership Program.

We are so excited to return to campus to greet you as you begin your first year at the place you will soon call home! We know that this year has definitely been difficult for many and has brought with it many changes and disruptions. A saying at SJU is that “Hawks Fly Together.” You are now a Hawk and are part of this tight-knit community. Not only that, you are now a member of the Philadelphia community. Through PSIP, you will begin to serve with and for your fellow Philadelphians in the spirit of kinship and solidarity. You will actively become a part of something bigger than yourself, inspiring and motivating you to pursue the magis in all that you do.

Enjoy the rest of your summers and see you soon! PEACE. LOVE. PSIP.

PSIP Coordinator

Hometown: Clifton, VA
Major: Psychology

Hey friends!! My name is Andrea Mueller, and I am a junior Psychology major with minors in English & Spanish! I am originally from Fairfax, VA, but I would say Philly is just as much home to me now. On campus, I am involved in Student Senate, Entrepreneurship Club, Fair Trade Club, Magis Weekly Service, Retreats, Irish Dance Club & psychology research labs. The funnest fact about me is that I studied abroad in Granada, Spain last semester! Some reasons I love PSIP include: lifelong friendships, creating authentic connections throughout our city, always learning something new & meeting freshmen just like you.

Hello Class of 2024! Welcome home to Hawk Hill! And better yet, welcome to the start of one of the most amazing experiences at SJU... PSIP!! My name is Soph Escario, a senior Psychology major from Clarksburg, MD. I am so excited to be one of your PSIP 2020 Coordinators because PSIP had such a positive, lasting impact on my life here at Saint Joe’s. PSIP made me fall in love with SJU by immersing me in service with and for others! It inspired me to join all the clubs & organizations I’m involved in today. I joined First Year Leadership Team, other great programs such as Weekly Service, and I participated in and was a leader for APEX, a spring break service trip offered at SJU. Needless to say, there are endless opportunities to get involved at SJU, and you made the best choice by starting it off with PSIP! You’ll meet great friends, make unforgettable memories, and start college with ease as you move in four days early! I cannot wait for you to learn more about one another, the Philadelphia area, and the beautiful communities within it! See you in August! Peace, Love, PSIP!!!
