5 College Freshman

Administration: I have never felt unsafe in campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Students do not receive much help with off campus housing.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: I stood there for orientation and the dorms were great. I enjoyed my night stay and I was pretty comfortable.

4 College Student

Administration: They are very strict about the visitation. No different sex individuals are allowed to stay in the dorms. I think there's certain amounts of visits one can have.

4 College Student

Greek Life: I see it on social medias a lot. They want people to join and they seems like they pretty accept everyone. I personally think it's really popular there. I'm not sure about their housing.

4 College Student

Scholarships: The financial aid process was a bit confusing. Then, again it's my first time so I know that in the future it'll be easier to understand.

4 College Student

Athletics: Having been to a few basketball games, many students participate to cheer for their team. I'm really anticipating the upcoming basketball season. The school has great team spirit and the team itself shows good performance. I enjoy their games very much.

College Student

Majors: I'm not sure about internships at sju.

5 College Student

Majors: If sju really wants you, they'll give you a fee waiver for your application fee. Also, or the arts if you send the needed portfolio on top, you are automatically considered for a scholarship.

5 College Student

Local Area: Seems very safe. I'll have no problems walking to and from school from the trains station. Lots of stores around. The area accepts students in general. While taking the bus one day I saw me middle school coming up from school. The bus was very packed but the older folks didn't seem bothered by the children/ college students at all.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I'm a commuter so I'm really not sure about.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: It's affordable and as a commuter it's convent for me. I just pick some right before/after class real quick.

College Freshman

Majors: I will only be attending for one semester. I don't intend to continue or graduate from St. Johns

College Freshman

Majors: See above answer. Workload is average for first year students.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home on Long Island. Nowhere near campus. I'm never on campus unless its for classes. I'm in and out and that's all.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Boring, I've never really enjoyed queens.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't dorm, I wouldn't know.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party much. I support myself and do not dorm so on the days I have off I'm either working or working on school work, or working out. Some form of work.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't affiliate with sports nor do I dorm, therefore my participation and knowledge about anything sporty is merely a lack thereof.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's mostly surrounded by suburbs, the closest thing are fast food chains. Personally, I'm a vegan so the dining options are inconvenient.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's devided by race and there are only three. It's mostly nonexistent and unimportant.

5 College Junior

Athletics: We have excellent athletics. The basketball team sometimes sends players to the NBA

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Idk I have nothing to do with Greek life on campus

3 College Junior

Administration: Don't usually deal with administration on campus

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't dorm on campus, but my friends' dorms are pretty clean and spacious and surpass the dorms at SUNY campuses that I've been to. They're also very safe but annoying to check people in I hear

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.
