4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had a really rough time with my first semester after realizing that the girls that I lived with hated me for nearly no reason and began stealing my stuff and vandalizing my property. After being moved into a new room the following semester, I met the most incredible people and was able to live with my best friend. I decided that I would join a sorority in order to make the transition easier and I could not be happier! Being a sister of Phi Sigma Sigma at St. John's University totally changed my life for the better. I am extremely proud to be representing the top recruiting sorority on campus and I cannot wait for the years to come.

Campus Food: The food is okay. There are some bad days but the good definitely out weigh them. There are plenty of options to choose from. Personally, in quest not to get the freshman 15 i ate a lot of freshens which is a really good salad place that would be typically be expensive but it was part of the meal plan.

Scholarships: the are very generous with what the funds they do supply but they do look at your grades heavily and base much of your scholarship off of that and numbers. Sometimes they can be money hungry so make sure that you are on top of what you owe them or what they owe you

Campus Housing: To live on campus is a benefit. It is very easy to make friends and be social wile living on campus. Depending on the building you get the rooms are a decent size and there is a lounge on each floor. Every building comes with free washing as well so it is really convenient.

Off-Campus Dining: Queens is very diverse and so are its food options. Awesome places to eat off campus. Plus, we are in NYC so the options really are endless.

Administration: St. John's has strict rules that they adhere to.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: For the most part St. John's gives decent scholarships but they aren't that much in the grand scheme of things because it does cost nearly 60k to attend - you have to work hard to get financial aid.

Campus Food: Not great food for the price of the meal plan.

Campus Housing: On campus housing is a hit or miss based off of your roommates/suitemates. Suites are nice because there are a common room and two bathrooms!

4 College Student

Guys & Girls: There are people out there for everyone. St. John's is one of the most ethnically diverse campuses in the U.S. and that is easily seen throughout campus. There's a little of everyone, you just find yourself someone that is like you which won't be hard.

Local Area: The local area is the best. It's still Queens so there are dangers but overall the atmosphere and quality and alright.

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.
