Overall Experience: St. John's Unoversity is a great school and has so much to offer between meeting people from all walks of life, to discovering life outside of campus and adventuring into the beautiful city that literally lies in the backyard of your home (campus).

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Your roommates, your suite mates are nice and welcoming. They make the experience better and more comfortable. The dorms are close to classes since they're on campus and they're very new so they're easy to get use to. They also still hold the traditional dorm style and atmosphere. The amenities are also up to date and very useful. Overall I would say the dorms are a safe, fun, and studious environment.

Everyone there knows what they want in life, the professors there help you get to where you want to be by their desire to teach and their passion to their subject, their motto is a lot to live by and is very encouraging. Overall the school itself can become you're home real quick and will always be your home. If I had the choice to do it all over again, to pick my school all over again it'll always be St. John's University.

Academics: You learn what you sign up to learn.

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.
