Justice Smith `18

Psychology Major and Biology Minor from New York, New York



What I want prospective students to know about Purchase: It’s an accepting and quite beautiful place to live.

The reason I became an Ambassador: I want to spread the love I have for SUNY Purchase.

My favorite spot on campus: Great Lawn

Why I chose Purchase: It’s close to New York City but still provides a college experience without it being in a city.

My hobbies and interests: Photography, Dance, and Lacrosse

Future plans after Purchase: I want to become a psychiatrist

What “Think Wide Open” means to me: The phrase “think wide open” is one that I live by. To always accept new ideas and people is the only way one will hope to grow. Without having a flexible mindset, one will not be able to grow. Therefore, I keep this phrase in mind as I journey through not just my college experience but life itself.
