5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel more safe on this campus than I do in my own home. The public safety officers are wonderful at what they do. There is practically no crime, people can leave bags anywhere. There are no blue lights, but you can just yell and someone can hear you.

Overall Experience: Unless you have graduate school afterwards the job prospects are pretty dim. career services try to help as much as they can and the alumni hire a fair amount of graduates.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the classes we take are regimented and there is practically no choice. I love each class and the class styles are wonderful with very small classroom sizes. The teachers are wonderful and passionate.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are a bit small, but good atmosphere for reading. The best are Gilliam and Specktor. The rooms are a bit pricey, but so is everything else.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have any, so it could be the best. We do study ancient Greek, so that is pretty great.

Athletics: The only reason I am saying its great is because its great for the type of students we have here. No one cares about sports here, we are all here to learn. Our gym would be sub par for other schools, but it is perfect for us. The intramural teams are a lot of fun and there are a lot of group workout classes. Out school spirit is only seen during the annual croquet match.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school allows students to learn in their own way and how to articulate what they have learned. This school is unique because of the classroom setting and size. The best experiences here have been in the classroom discussing with my fellow students. I would do this program all over again in a heartbeat.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Lots of discussion about sexual assault. That doesn't mean that it happens any less frequently.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school. I know that everyone on campus has some kind of problem with something, but overall it's worth it. There are pros and cons to our small size and everyone taking the same classes, but whether or not you'll like that depends on you.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great alumni connections. Great career center. Lots of opportunities/encouragement to intern.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are average, to a bit small. We had a bit of an incident with the roof caving in at PACA during a blizzard. However, dorms are super close to classes which is incredibly convenient, and as long as you aren't in Randall, you're probably good.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our Greek life consists of translating Meno and wondering WWSD (what would Socrates do). Overall, I would say that Greek life is very important to Johnnies.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: No varsity sports. People don't really take intramurals seriously.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If you're someone who likes flexibility in courses and majors, taking only required classes can be unfortunate.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: its a great campus and its an eyeopener. you start thinking about things that never seemed that important and that's the beauty of this campus it teaches you how to think. the don raags itself is great.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: For such a small campus, there are lot of parties every friday and saturday. we work hard during the weeks so its our way of winding down. the parties are okay, its the same scene. there are jazz nights sometimes on fridays and they are great. there are lot of things happening. if you want to spend friday night thinking we also have friday night lectures which are great.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: for a small school there are lot of parties and its sometimes off campus but usually on one of the dorms,. the parties are okay. nothing new about them but it gets boring after you party with the same people every week.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: we only have intramurals and they are great. we also have boxing club, crew, sailing, frisbee and a lot of other things. the sports usually change every season.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: public safety is great. its a very safe campus. health center is great too although the insurance might be a little expensive

2 College Freshman

Diversity: This is one of the weak side of st johns regarding student diversity. Last semester we had a Total of 9 black students in our entire campus. Majority of the students are white followed by koreans and the remaining are of other different races. in terms of economic, racial , religious and political views there is diversity and the program itself teaches us to respect other views even though you don't necessarily agree.sexual orientation doesn't matter. you do you .everything is accepted and no body is going to point you out on it.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The tutors are brilliant and i kid you not.Majority or maybe even all of them are PHD holders. They do not just teach one specific subject they teach from ancient greek to euclidean geometry, our tutors are well rounded. Our curriculum consists of all the "great books" of the western civilization. currently i am tackling euclid, plato etc. At the end of graduation you will be getting a minor in history of math and science so you have to be prepared for this too although its rewarding yet rigorous. you have to really learn and understand.

Drug Safety: some students have been expelled for drug possession. Matter regarding drugs are taken seriously.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: the thing with st john's is that you have to belong to the program. you cant just assume that its going to be easy. its not easy. there is a big difference between being tested in exams or everyday. the tutor are evaluating you everyday and which is lot harder than learning and giving a test. you are being evaluated in every way possible.your reasoning, how much you participate, how much you understand the readings.it is a very rigorous college but its rewarding too.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love all my tutors! They all care about me individually and it's easy to talk to them about anything.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Our career office works hard to help us find the best jobs and opportunities during and after school.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

St. John's is not the perfect school for every student because it offers an incredibly specific education. The College calls for a certain type of mind to follow the program to completion, and even more importantly, the desire and drive to do so is essential. For students who spend four years grappling with the serious, earth-shattering ideas that make up the St. John's Program, it is the most enjoyable, valuable, and crucial experience of their lives. It is not only rewarding during the process, though—it leaves students feeling prepared for whatever life has in store. The academic rigor combined with the sense of community and the huge variety of experiences that are available instill a sense of confidence and self-worth in students.

Hour after hour, day after day, year upon year is spent exercising the activities of speaking, writing, explaining, discussing, and communicating. So many ideas and avenues are explored. Students are faced with challenges, academically, socially, intellectually, and philosophically. At St. John's, everyone is involved in the same pursuits academically. They share classes, discussions, mealtimes, and close quarters. The same students party together, read together, and talk together. Every student can relate to every one of his or her classmates, simply due to their shared experiences. This closeness is such a strength, and while it can be difficult—you might want to strangle that guy in your core group if he brings up Plotinus one more time—it ultimately enhances the overall experience exponentially.
