3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: It's usually very crowded, expensive and hot. I don't thin k the parties are worth it. Did I mention expensive??

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't really care for them, mainly because they're not that big of a deal. The greatest thing we have going for us is our basketball team, which hasn't been doing too well very recently. We don't have a football team, which I wish we did, because football's a big thing in Texas.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Being in New York City, you are constantly exposed to the latest fashions and trends. Everyone and everything is pretty liberal and everyone's very accepting. It's very easy to make new friends and get along with others.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I didn't really encounter any challenges getting into my major and/or school. Most important thing for receiving financial aid would probably be academic achievement.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Being in New York City, the opportunities are endless. There is so much variety to the school and you can never really be bored.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love all my classes. My professors are really understanding and knowledgeable. With classes that contain a smaller amount of students, it's easy to get help from teachers and make new friends in class.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is an entire department dedicated to helping students find jobs and internships! It's really exciting, especially being in the most influential and hard-working cities in the world!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It was very easy to receive the aid that I got. The majority of the students that attend the school are given aid and that's why many choose to attend here.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is primarily popular within cultures, as there are different societies for different ethnic groups. The hazing is pretty bad though, and off campus societies have been known to cause trouble.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: My school is one of the most diverse campus' in the country. I know many people from different backgrounds, and it was a total culture shock for me as I've grown up in a white-dominated community in Texas.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: New York City is where everyone with a dream goes to achieve it. Everything from the food, nightlife and culture is just so enticing. I believe that you could live there you're whole life and you still wouldn't know every single place there, as it's enormous size and constant change make it difficult to ever NOT discover something new.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I go to a private school, so obviously it's going to be strict. The campus is known as a "dry campus" which means alcohol is not allowed whatsoever, whether you're 21 or not. Even if you're in the presence of alcohol, you still get in trouble, which is kind of a downer. The overnight guest policy is really tedious and a hassle. Overall, there is just a really low tolerance for anything.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: With my school being in New York City, it is very easy to find cheap an convenient food, that isn't a big-name chain. The variety of food is amazing, seeing as though my location provides home to many different ethnic foods. Also, whenever I don't feel like leaving my dorm, I can order anything from a burger to indian.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I love the dining options at my school! Including chain restaurants like Taco Bell and Burger King, there are mnay other options such as the cafe in DAC and in Marillac! The dining hall also offers a great variety of foods and I'm very pleased with it. Also, the hours are amazing; they stay open until 10pm on weekdays. If it's after hours, there's also the option of going to the diner where you can order something until 3am.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved my suite. it was big.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: VERY DIVERSE. I love it.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Still live on campus however there are a lot of people who live off famous so I think its good.

4 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career center is great and they really you make choices.

St. John’s has its ups and downs, but most students agree, sometimes reluctantly, that the bad outweighs the good. Some argue that with the high tuition cost, students should receive better student services and facilities. The school’s motto is, “We are St. John’s,” but does the administration listen when students speak? The school needs more dorm rooms, better computers, and more people ready to help students instead of giving them the runaround or transferring their calls to someone else. These things are not luxuries, but rather necessities to keep the students and the institution running smoothly.

Going to St. John’s is a good experience, and the name only seems to impress many people, which is a good trademark to use in the workforce. The overwhelming majority of teachers cares about its students. Check out St. John’s extensively before attending to see if it can meet your needs, especially monetary-wise. In 1870, when St. John’s was founded by the Vincentian community, it was supposed to be an answer for the poor students who couldn’t afford schooling; now many feel SJU is making the students poor. The costs are going up each year, but the financial aid is basically staying the same, making it hard for students to attend because of the lack of funding. Explore it for yourself. There’s plenty to enjoy and benefit from, but don’t get caught up in hype.
