Tristan Symons, '21, values his education from the College of Saint Elizabeth so much that he doesn't mind travelling over 120 miles to class each day.

However, Symons is no stranger to personal sacrifice. For four years, he served as a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps and was deployed to Marjah, Afghanistan in 2012.
