Overall Experience: I'm happy with the services that we get on campus. They help students a lot.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think public safety plays a big role on the safety of campus and I feel really safe.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing is not that bad after all. The hours for visitors are really strict. That's the only bad thing about it.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really know a lot about Greek Life but I'm thinking about joining it because it's a big part of St. John's.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics is a huge thing at St. John's since it's a D1 school. People really enjoy going to the games and it's something that even though I'm not part of it, I really enjoy it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy going to St. John's. I'm thinking about joining Greek life because it's something that St. John's is really popular for.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors at this school are a joke. Some of them are not suited for the classes they are teaching.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The alumni network is pretty prominent from this school.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus. Public safety drives around a lot.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The building I lived in was continuously dirty the entire year. It was only cleaned once a week from what I saw. The rooms are very small for the amount of people that are in a living space. The bathrooms need updated facilities.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Joining greek life was the best decision I have ever made. It gave me a home away from home and gave me something to like about the St. John's campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The basketball team is the most known on campus but they are the worst in their sport.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose this school again because the majority of the professors in the field I am studying are adjunct professors. These professors are supposed to be experts in the materials because I am trying to attend medical school.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: Being in the neighborhood that it is in, sometimes things can be somewhat unsafe. But both Public Safety and the NYPD do a good job of keeping most things under control. So with that, I feel relatively safe.

Campus Housing: I only lived on campus my freshman year and it was pretty average. There were many rules we had to follow which at times could be annoying. But the Resident Advisers were very helpful when it came to just talking to someone. They were also helpful when it came to trying to navigate and understand campus when I had just moved in and didn't really know anything about the campus.

Overall Experience: So far my experience has been pretty good. The social aspect has been very good. All of the people I have encountered are very welcoming and helpful. Also the friends I have made are friendships that will last a lifetime. From the academic standpoint, it has been somewhat tough. Transitioning from high school to college was not as easy as I expected. Also the workload is a lot more than expected. As challenging as it is, the professors are usually very helpful as long as you ask for the help. If I was going through the process of picking schools again, I would definitely pick this school all over again.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is up to standards. Public safety is much better on our campus then on other campuses for sure. Public safety is there to help when you need it and they take the right safety measures to insure safety to the students

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, college life hasn't been bad, and I know that with 3 more years, my college experience will be better. The professors care about how you're doing and they encourage office hours and make sure that you're on track to good grades

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center is very helpful when it comes to providing help in the career field. They're able to fix up your resume and help out with ways to get a job and the interview process.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big on campus although there aren't that many Greeks, the Greek pride is pretty big. Greeks are always wearing their letters and are proud that they're a part of a brotherhood or sisterhood. Greek life has been great so far, with the amount of people that I've met and how many friendships have come out of joining Greek life. Non- Greeks probably view it as the Greek life is pretty big but in reality, it's only a small part of the campus but every Greek is just really prideful in their letters that they earned and the sisterhood/ brotherhood they're a part of, so it makes it look like the Greek community is huge on campus

2 College Freshman

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.
