4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses and professors are very polite and nice. I have only had one bad professor that was rude and the rest were very helpful. Not only are they there to teach you, but they are truly there for you to learn. If even one student does not understand they help them even if it holds up the class. But if its for too long they do have to move on with the class. Other than that the teachers and staff are very helpful, resourceful, compassionate, passionate about what they teach and very nice to their students.

Overall Experience: When someone sees a degree from this school they know you come from a good school. People come to the school to recruit in order to get new employees. And the government even comes to employ the students that are about to graduate. So when someone sees a St.Johns degree anyone knows that it is a very good school.

Health & Safety: The safety of the students come first. Public safety is one call away and there are cars patrolling the campus for any assistance. And after dark there is only one way to get into campus and its a gate that needs your id in order to get in. If you are not a student they take measures t figure out who you are, why you are here and what does the individual want. So safety ad security is pretty good at St. Johns University.

Greek Life: They have specific ones such as RISE for Afro & Latina's which is pretty cool.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone really supports and rallies around the Red Zone/ SJU sports teams. It's a cool vibe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Orientation was fun. The school's mission was well conveyed and made you excited to be a Johnnie. I sense the school might be a bit strict but I think a lot of the fun in college comes from doing stuff that isn't allowed anyways so their rules shouldn't be an obstacle as such. Everyone's really warm and accepting. The boys are hella fine.

If I could reapply again, I'd probably dorm as that seems to be more of a way to stay in the loop.

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.
