College Junior

Majors: No internships but I will student teach in the fall.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Perks of being in Queens, one of the most diverse areas in the country. Cheap small places are everywhere, though not directly outside of campus. To really get a sense of off-campus dining, one would have to take a ~15 minute walk off campus as the area directly surrounding the campus is mostly residential. Food on campus is very pricey, around $10 for a sandwich meal.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not dorm and have never been in the dorms. Very close to classes, though. Really, no matter where you are there is no hike as it is a small campus.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Could be sketchy and we get frequent Public Safety notices about robberies. At night or when alone, it's important to stay aware of your surroundings. Keep your phones concealed and don't be distracted by earphones! Public Safety itself does try hard to keep the students safe, though.

Athletics: Some places can be updated, but overall they serve their purpose

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.
