Academics: You learn what you sign up to learn.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Lots of diversity, so no one would legitimately judge someone else for identity.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: People here and there talk about it, but feel free not to get involved and no one would hate you for it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Courses are challenging enough, but professors are generally helpful and class sizes are not too large. Classes come in a variety of different styles, from traditional to completely unfamiliar.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Students are generally expected to get some kind of job after graduating, but there isn't any guarantee it will be in their field of choice. If you spend your time at the college wisely, then you will increase your prospects.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: You here about robberies here and there, but there aren't many life-threatening assaults on students. The area around the campus may or may not have more crime, but the campus itself is generally safe.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
