3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Education here is primary. But outside of school, work, career service, and everything else is more secondary and not taken as close attention as education.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Can't really get an internship, one of the career advisor told me to google for internship instead of helping me out on finding one.

Campus Housing: It is average for housing. But for the price, it can be better. There isn't really a lot of space which encourages the use of going outside more.

Overall Experience: The school's office for career services is not professional and not helpful when it comes to trying to find some internships. It is really hard to do anything in school that is fun as a lot of the classes that are provided here are actually forced and boring. There isn't as large of a variety as you think here.

Athletics: The basketball team at my school is one of the most significant parts of school spirit and helps to establish it. Students are very involved with the athletics at my school such as cheerleading, basketball, woman's basketball and more as my school has a large variety of sports to be involved in.

Overall Experience: I feel that I am getting my money's worth of an education and that my school has a lot to offer education wise. What makes my school unique is the inclusion of church and religion which is apart of my life. I would choose my school if i could do it all over again because i'm sure that the education that i'm receiving is worth it. I think anyone's experience at my school including mine can only be what it is made to be.

Health & Safety: There are numerous emergency stations where you can immediately call for help all over campus.

Campus Housing: It's great for making friends and really feeling involved. Definitely always exciting, wish we had printing stations in freshmen residence halls. Lounges on every floor but only one kitchen in the building which is annoying.

Greek Life: We have a lot of sororities but Greek life doesn't seem like it's that big or influential and their houses aren't very big and their parties aren't really good

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.
