Saint John Paul II House Intro (retreat 1)

House Chairs:

Peter Maggio

I am a senior (class of 2020) Computer Engineering major hailing from Dallas Texas. You can pretty much always find me hanging out around the student center at St. Mary’s studying, chilling, or playing pool. I love to talk about our faith and philosophy, and I’m known for having really long discussions about really confusing topics. My hobbies are billiards, piano, country dancing, and convincing people that computers aren’t actually real. But, most importantly, I love being Catholic and I can’t wait to share the joy that I experience in my faith with all of you incoming students. 

Michaela Pugh

I'm an old soul, dance lovin, coffee drinking, imperfect girl from San Antonio pursuing a degree in Marketing. Not sure what I want to do with that, but the unknown creates the perfect recipe for trust in God's plan. You can find me laughing my heart out to episodes of I Love Lucy and getting lost driving in nice neighborhoods imagining what my future home will be like. I have a slight obsession over the number 22 and love picnics, avocados, dark chocolate and poetry! My best advice for your freshman year is to be gentle with yourself and find a community of friends who will challenge, love and encourage you. Can't wait to meet you all!
