Aidan Cavazos


From San Antonio, Texas, and majoring in Business with a minor in Sports Management, Aidan Cavazos ’23 comes to Holy Cross College with a unique history and understanding of the Congregation of Holy Cross.

“Starting in middle school, I attended a Congregation of Holy Cross School, attending Holy Cross of San Antonio. Not knowing about Holy Cross College other than from the movie Rudy, I did not know much about Holy Cross,” notes Cavazos. “It was not until Fr. Joseph Moyer C.S.C. and his guidance told me about an opportunity that I may have an interest in. I, then, visited campus one weekend in February 2019, and I just fell in love with Holy Cross. I loved the small class environment, the 1:1 feeling that you can’t get anywhere else, and the general welcoming that was there from the onset.”

Why Holy Cross College

“I have not regretted my decision. I have met some of the best human beings this world has had to offer. What the tri-campus has given me throughout my 4 years at Holy Cross, I cannot thank enough. Being in the situation I have been in, I am grateful and humbled to even be here and owe so much to so many people. The memories and experiences shared have been second to none, and one day I hope to share it with people that I come across in the future,” said Cavazos.

Field of study

“I decided on business because I felt something in the business industry best suited for what I want to be now and where I want to be in the future. Business covers all aspects in any line of industry and in knowing that I believe that is what made me solidify my decision for my field of study,” notes Cavazos. “After my internship experience at Amazon, I have pondered many options, but I want to stay in the business industry. Whether it be in a consulting position or a project managing position, I want to be able to live comfortably and be the best I possibly can which involves me doing what I love best.”

Campus involvement

“During my time at Holy Cross College, I got heavily involved with the Notre Dame football recruiting program as a recruiting analyst. During my tenure there, I would analyze high school prospects through their film, be instructed to evaluate a prospect that fits their prototypical build, and inform coaches of my study on each player. This experience I would say was a stepping stone on how to properly analyze data and use proper evaluation techniques,” said Cavazos.

Impactful experience

“A recent memorable moment that impacted my life and made me who I am today was the passing of my grandmother during my freshman year. The strong tight relationship I had with her was beyond compare and made me rethink my outlook on life in general. For several months there was an adjusting period and to this day I reflect on the memories and time I once had with her,” recalls Cavazos. “Through time it made me a stronger individual, it give me the ability to go after anything I wanted without fear, and learned how to persevere under tough times. Although she is gone, I still feel her presence prevalent in my life to this day.”

Future outlook

“Only God knows, sounds cliché but that is the truth,” said Cavazos. “I do know and envision myself giving my all in anything and everything I do, which hopefully will manufacture luck. A great friend once told me to embrace everything as it is, and the future will come easier than you think. And I believe I’ll take that approach for the foreseeable future.”
