Chestnut Hill College taught La-Riese that she could do anything she wanted!


Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
Major: Spanish


“I always say Chestnut Hill College chose me. As a child, I didn’t even think I’d go to college but Chestnut Hill gave me an opportunity I simply couldn’t pass up. With a generous scholarship offer, I made the decision to come to CHC. The most important thing that I have learned here is that I can do anything that I want to do or anything that I set my mind to. The Sisters of Saint Joseph continually affirm—both in the classroom and out—that there is nothing I can’t do. In particular and most endearing to me, is my study abroad experience in Spain. What a chance of a lifetime!


My CHC education has prepared me for my future by giving me an opportunity to apply what I learned in the classroom to the real world.”
