5 College Student

Athletics: Our athletes have good facilities to practice, train, and prepare for games. Students are very involved as far as attending sporting events, I just wish there was more school spirit.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: It's a great school with a great amount of helpful teachers, regardless of the couple few that aren't particularly everyone's favorite.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my experience with courses and professors at my school so far. I have been fortunate to receive great professors who value our education and help us whenever we need it. I was always placed in a moderately sized class, no more than 50 students, unless it was a lecture hall, so I have no complaints from that end as well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Potential employers recognize the value of a degree from my school, we receive quality education and our school's career services help students land internships that they are interested in.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our campus is a very safe campus for anyone visiting or anyone who actually attends our school. We always have campus security patrolling the campus to make sure no one is up to anything that they shouldn't be doing, and making sure everyone is safe. We don't get any alerts for crimes on campus either.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks dont' really affect our social atmosphere, at our school if you're involved with Greek life, that's great, if not, that's fine as well. No one really has a bias towards those in Greek life or vice versa. Personally, I'm not in a fraternity, but I plan to be and I've spoken to brothers from different fraternities and all of them have been very friendly and helpful with explaining what they're about and such. Greek life students can seek housing outside of campus and rent out a house with others, or they can just live on their own,it depends on them.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at my school in terms of school spirit, student involvement and such is actually really, really good! My friends and I attend mostly the soccer games at our school whenever we have a chance and sometimes the basketball games, but whenever we go, the gymnasium and field are packed with students supporting our school. Our teams play well too, and the better we play, the better our school spirit. Regardless, we always cheer on our sports teams.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy being a student at St. John's University, the staff have been nothing but helpful towards me during my first year at this institution. What makes my school unique is that there is never a dull moment there. We constantly have events and fairs going on throughout the semester so not only is that fun, but it also takes away some stress from our academics. I would definitely choose my school again if I could do it all over because yes, it's very costly, but its networking is very advantageous for students and I believe that almost anyone who becomes an alumni can benefit from it.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel safe when public safety is around, but when I have night classes and no one is really around I get nervous travelling around the campus.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school always brings back alumni to help students pursue their careers and to give some insight on possible jobs.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I love being so close to my classes and because of that I refuse to miss any even if I'm sick. The apartments aren't taken care of well and I've had some problems that needed to be taken care of because they could lead to health issues.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life has helped me grow as a person, but unfortunately the school is trying to get rid of it.

3 College Senior

Athletics: On my campus sports aren't important to the student body and there aren't any to participate in.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: St. Johns is primarily known as a commuter school, so the nature of campus housing isn't all that great.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Our school is not known for greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our school is known for being a basketball school, therefore basketball is very important.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: St. John's is an amazing school, plus not many people get to say that they have had the chance to live in New York City. There are endless opportunities, including amazing study abroad programs. Anyone searching for a new experience that gets them out of their comfort zone should definitely consider this school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year of college was amazing and I have absolutely no regrets and look foward to the next year

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: St. John's has a very strong and accredited academic program. With the knowledge and skill earned, you will fill quite confindent after graduation.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public safety is the best and is always willing to help!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing is fun and involves a lot between the resident and RA's such as ice breakers and fun activities throughout each week

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Their's a wide variety of classes offered is an opportunity to expand your horizons and learn beyond what you're use to. The professors who teach those classes are very dedicated in their teachings. The class sizes aren't as bad some big some small, but each are comfortable environments for learning.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They're places that you can go to where they'll help you find a job or internships and they're very driven to make sure you are able to graduate with the degree of your choice and in your field of your dreams.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Seeing a;; of the different sororities and fraternities are cool. If interested in one, make sure to do your research.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics are pretty good, going to the basketball games is such a fun and exciting experience

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.
