4 College Student

Campus Housing: It's great. The dorms aren't really big but big enough and help you form great friendships. Everything is fun about dorming except the price. It can add up to around $20,000.

3 College Student

Party Scene: I have never been to any of those parties but everyone seems to like the ones at Trads.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of student discounts on almost all stores surrounding St. John's. This results in the prices also being low. There is a large variety of off-campus dining options and I would recommend Crepe N Tearia. They have the best crepes.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I got financial aid to cover a great majority of tuition, but still had to pay thousands out of pocket.

Majors: Need more internships available to students in all majors, not just one particular section.

4 College Junior

Administration: Campus security is kind of overbearing especially when dealing with trivial situations.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing special about it. Wish there was a Chipotle or Chick-Fila near by.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The culture sucks for a transfer student, everyone is already cliqued off by the time school starts.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: There's literally a fraternity or sorority for every combination of Greek letters.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I wish the school offered more classes and more varied class times.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: It gets crowded so quickly but there's always variety.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public Safety is very good.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I haven't been able to join a sorority yet but I will once I am eligible .

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: You will need to take transportation to get any kind of off campus food .

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Receiving my financial aid wasn't too much of a hassle. The financial aid office notified me immediately when there was a missing document and provided me enough time to send them a copy.

Greek Life: Honestly, as a freshman, I see the Greek students but they are just doing their things. People here don't really feel pushed to join unless they really want to. They hold lots of donations for causes. They aren't assholes.

Health & Safety: Public Safety is always around looking to keep our campus safe. Honestly, I feel safe on campus. If a student is drunk, they will be there for support and make sure they don't pass out.

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.
