Meet Toliver ’20
The son of a physician, Toliver Freeman ’20 knew from a young age that he wanted to be a doctor. A gifted basketball player, he had always hoped to play on a Division I team. He chose Saint Joseph’s University because it gave him opportunities to pursue both dreams.
Toliver’s pursuit of his passions yielded strong results. Before his junior year, the men’s basketball team awarded him an athletic scholarship in recognition of his contributions to the team. The demands of balancing a division one schedule and a rigorous biology curriculum were no match for Toliver’s tenacity. He consistently earned a place on the Atlantic 10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll and served as a fellow in Saint Joseph’s Institute of Clinical Bioethics, where he gained valuable health-related experience.
With an 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio and deep-sense of community, Saint Joseph’s is dedicated to giving you the time, attention and mentorship needed to help you do your best during your college years. Toliver credits the faculty and staff at Saint Joseph’s for helping guide his path to medicine, from his coaches to his biology professors and campus pre-health advising team. Through the connections he made in both the academic and athletic worlds, he was connected to and completed an internship at the Rothman Institute and shadowed doctors with specialties ranging from trauma to radiology to hospice. Now, Toliver is enrolled in medical school.
