3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: SJU does well in this regard, I've never felt unsafe except when going to off campus parties or bars.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The parties at SJU generally sucked. SJU is too far from most bars to walk to so you need to drive / taxi / train.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: As a Jesuit University, they should aspire to a higher quality of behavior. BUT they are far too strict and completely ignore the real world connection of drinking and college social life. If they lower their standards it may keep more students safely on campus rather than traveling into the city to drink. First hand I've seen this put more students at risk than simply allowing them to drink on campus / in dorms.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They are too strict, too cramped and one building may be incredible while another may be a disaster. A true rainbow in terms of something being great to something being horrible.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I was never forced or coerced into taking something I didn't actively search out or want to take. I've never seen anyone peer pressured into taking anything they didn't want to either. College tends to be a time of experimentation. While meeting a lot of new people and ideas, drugs tend to show up.

The 'study' drugs thing is interesting and should warrant some studies in the future but the rest is just young, emotional pre-adults doing semi-irresponsible things. I would like to see college become more realistic in knowing what their students are doing and provide more services to help people deal with addiction.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you need quick and cheap it is there. Being on the edge of Philadelphia there is a lot of options.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is financial aid. I am still trying to get my situation worked out so I may be biased or unable to provide a good opinion on this matter currently.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: You can find what you want. If you need cheap you can find cheap but there will be tradeoffs. It may be a dirty/old building in a worse part of town. Or you can find moderately priced cheap alternatives maybe further away.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I never rushed or felt the need to join a fraternity. Sometimes they have parties but SJU isn't the best 'party' school.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It is weather. There really isn't a lot you can say about it is there?

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Since the campus has grown significantly I'd imagine the transportation issues has become more complex. I live off campus so I drive and parking out of the lot is a bit of a nightmare. I take the train from my apartment.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: SJU seems to be a fairly diverse place. The high tuition bill is likely the main deterrent to becoming 'more' diverse but overall it certainly strives to be as diverse as it can.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Great mental health options available compared to larger schools

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I do not live on campus

3 College Freshman

Computers: Most of the time there is no wifi, but when there is, it is great.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Pretty easy. Once you are accepted to the university, you are automatically accepted into the programs offered here, but you still need to meet the requirements and apply.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Public health so far has been great.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Never had of anyone using drugs.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: They are not very helpful with getting scholarships, only loans

3 College Junior

Computers: The labs are focused in the front of the campus and the printing is unreliable

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The education varies by the professor but the campus is small and my colleagues are great

3 College Junior

Weather: Snow is the obvious hassle because parking becomes difficult

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: There is one dining hall and a very small cafe open limited hours

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Parking is strict in the beginning of the day and of the year

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live at home, but there are many apartments available but a bit expensive
