Sister John Joseph was my freshman- and sophomore-year guidance counselor at Bishop Kearney H.S. and she was probably the happiest nun I ever met in my life. I didn’t know religious life could be so joyful until I met Sister John Joseph. She always had a hug and a smile (and a few Tootsie Rolls) for every student who crossed her path. She made everyone feel like they were special, like they mattered and that they were loved (by her and God). I can only imagine the hugs, smiles and Tootsie Rolls that God had waiting for her!

Top colleges for the money? NYC has 18 of ‘em
Money magazine’s first list of the nation’s top schools ranked Cooper Union eighth and Columbia University 22nd. But a tiny school on Long Island stole their glory.

*** begin quote ***

Updated: July 28, 2014 4:17 p.m.

Eighteen schools in New York City made Money magazine’s inaugural list of the 665 colleges and universities that deliver the best education for the money, based on various criteria including graduation rates.

Little-known Webb Institute, a tiny engineering college in Glen Cove, Long Island, was New York state’s top finisher, ranking second overall. The school has just 79 undergraduate students, all on full scholarships, and its alumni earn an average salary of more than $65,000 within five years of graduating. Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and Columbia University, both in Manhattan, were New York City’s top two finishers, placing eighth and 22nd, respectively.

“Webb is the last private community college in the united States that offers to all students a four-year, full-tuition scholarship,” said William Murray, its director of enrollment management. “This is the first time that we have been ranked.”

Webb was helped by the fact that all of its students got jobs within two months of graduation.

Manhattan College, which despite its name is in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, was ranked 40th by Money,
