Off-Campus Housing: I mean, I live across the state so I am not fit to answer this question

College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I do not and have never lived on campus or in thsi state, thus I am unable to answer this question

4 College Junior

Administration: From the interactions I have had with Admin and counselors and the Grad department, everyone is extremely patient, welcoming, helpful, and willing. It has honestly been a really nice experience.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Same as any other school-I filled out the FAFSA and was offered loans, which pay for my schooling

Campus Housing: I don't and never have lived on campus-I am in the online program and I live across the country

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus is small so you won't be too far from your classes and a lot of people are friendly so the social aspect is great. The food is also pretty good but it has its off days of course

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I did not live off campus freshman year.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Being in Philly, there are a vast number of dining options off campus.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Not outstanding, not terrible. No major complaints other than shuttles running a little late at times.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: One of the reasons I went here is because of the chancellorship they offered me in a school with a solid academic program

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Other than how unreliable and unpredictable the wifi can be across campus, technology here is not a problem. However the IT department is filled with jerks who are not cooperative with people who come in at all.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campion food is tasteless, it takes almost the entire 1st semester for your stomach to adjust to the awful food, and there are little alternatives rather than a hot dog or pizza to tie you over.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: In la farge housing, Other than the occasional cockroach sighting, cramped hallways, loud construction around 7 a.m. every morning, mediocre bathrooms, warm water issues in shower, life is what you make it in la farge. You will be living "not so large" in lafarge

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are really nice and others are average. Living in a suite is really fun but you sacrifice living in one of the nicer buildings. Sophomore housing is extremely nice though.

Guys & Girls: I only talk to people in my classes but they are all very nice. Varying in age, it is nice to get perspectives from different people.

4 College Junior

Local Area: You are so close to everything in center city. It is only a train ride away!

College Junior

Athletics: I have not been a part of or been to any athletic games.

5 College Junior

Academics: The work load is not unbearable. It is a lot of reading but that is important because most of the classes are discussion based and the readings are interesting.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

To fully understand St. Joe's, you have to appreciate the people who run it. There's a uniform vibe amongst the faculty, staff, and students here that's unique to the school. A large number of students end up sticking around the area or moving to Philly for job offers after graduation. While it's true many grads pack up and head to D.C. or NYC for jobs, it's because of the time and effort they put in at St. Joe's that gets them there. Also, it's not uncommon for St. Joe's students to stick around the University with campus jobs in certain departments or as housing advisers.

Everyone at St. Joe's takes the school with a small sense of humor. There are some who love it and a small percentage who pretend they hate it, but most people agree this quirky school—in an even quirkier city—is endearing. The biggest complaint is the cost of attending; however, this is often offset by the large amount of scholarships given out. The running theme through the school is Hawk pride. A lot of students have the "grass is greener" syndrome when reflecting on their time here. However, ask a St. Joe's student if they would rather be down the road at UPenn or Villanova, and you might get a fat lip.
