4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Public Safety on campus definitely do their job. It may be annoying sometimes what sticklers they can be, but at the end of the day they're doing their jobs.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had some really good professors. I've had some really bad professors. I've taken some courses I couldn't stay awake for. I've taken some courses that I actually look forward to each week. It all comes down to the student and their educational interests and the teacher of course.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: St. John's University is a very well accredited school. Many top alumni have come out of SJU. Employers love recruiting SJ students, coming to our campus at least twice a semester at our Career Fair.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms don't really bring a home feeling. They are suite style and it's rare for everyone in the entire suite to get along and actually be friends.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Being that Sj is mainly a commuter school, I think the best way to be more involved and to meet new people and have a more typical fun college experience is the join greek life here. Me personally, I thought about it and did my research because I am a commuter but it just was't for me.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: 4 stars for the simple fact SJU is a D1 school, which means D1 Athletics.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I came here because my mom works here. Free tuition. Was never necessarily my first choice but it is what you make of it honestly.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not a part of it so I can't really say

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Basketball games are fun to attend

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The proffesors are really good at those subjects!

5 College Student

Campus Housing: There are always some events going on on campus

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are a lot of dorming opportunities available. Many people chose to dorm in the beginning years and have a great experience doing so. It is a great way to make friends and meet new people on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I believe St. John's has a lot of culturally-positive experiences that aid students in finding themselves and developing as a person. Between diverse student population, extracuricular activities, and research opportunities, it is really easy to find your niche at St. John's.

Athletics: Our school has a very high following for basketball. The students are consistently attending basketball games in the custom Student Section and showing their school spirit. We also have RedZone committees along with several others that are in charge of school spirit, who hand out props to use during games and are also useful in everyday life.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: the dorms here do not live uo to the anount of money that goes into them. it is also uncomfortable to sleep in a bed that is to small for the people. living on campus is nice because you do not have to travel far just to get to class, and the people you can meet in your dorm can become good friends for your time here at school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: some of the greek clubs are out of control and do some shady things. but they do activities to help the community

3 College Freshman

Athletics: people go to sporting events when it is conveniet for them

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The job opportunities are incredible, and the organizations here are world class in my opinion. the only bad thing is the food, but that is a little problem that is not serious at all

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Public safety is an active presence on campus, they ensure that everyone feels safe.

Athletics: Our basketball team is highly renowned. We just hired Chris Mullen as the men's head coach. Other sports on campus are actually much better than our mens basketball team, but does not get the same recognition.

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.
