Hello, my name is Bradley Gendel and I am a senior at Holy Cross College majoring in both Business and Communications. I was born and raised in South Bend, IN and attended Marian High School in Mishawaka. After graduating from Marian in 2008 I was unsure of what I wanted to do next. Ultimately, I decided to continue on to college because that is what most of my friends were doing and what my parents wanted me to do. When I enrolled at Holy Cross, I had never visited the campus, but decided I would go there because I could pursue my passion of playing hockey, it was close to home, and two of my best friends would also be attending classes there in the Fall.
Now that I am four years older, four years wiser, and have four years of Holy Cross College education under my belt, I can look back and truly see how my life has been changed by being here. It is difficult to imagine how different my life would have been had I not decided to come to Holy Cross, but I can honestly say I am grateful to have had the opportunity to attend college here and not only receive a great education, but to play hockey and be close to my family. Looking towards my future, Holy Cross has given me the tools I need to succeed and has truly put "the world on a string."
My e-folio will walk you through the various experiences I have had during my time at Holy Cross and how they transformed me from a naïve high school student to a mature young man with the skills, education, and drive to achieve anything. Everything that you will look at today has helped me and has given me the opportunitiey to do whatever I would like in life. I believe thanks to Holy Cross "I've got the world on a string".
