4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall sju is only great if you make it great. The opportunities for a real college experience are there you just have to take them! I highly recommend greek life or any other student organization as these are the best ways to get involved and make life long friendships

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Yes the school is safe but public safety forgets that they aren't real police officers. They're just power hungry.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's New York City haha you can find any type of restaurant you want everything is just a bit pricey

4 College Freshman

Transportation: There are shuttles that are free that come every 40 minutes as well as public buses all around the outside of the campus that are affordable. The ferry is free and the cost of an MTA ride is reasonable.

Scholarships: Its best to go to the financial aid office in person because you get guidance and can ask all the questions you will have. Also all the forms are there, also they help you find more ways to pay for school and are great at explaining federal loans.

Technology: The provided laptops work great, the computer technicians at the computer lab are always helpful, the printing on campus is easy and a printing allowance of $40 is provided each semester. The network is always up and running at a reasonably fast pace and the shared printer and provided laptop is beyond good enough to complete all work.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus during all hours and I know there is always public safety or faculty around if Im in need of assistance.

Diversity: On the Queens campus diversity is incredible, however on the Staten Island campus its a little more homogenous yet there is diversity there. My experience on both campuses is that everyone is very accepting of each other no matter their diffrences.

Party Scene: I don't really go out at night but from what I hear there are many things to do. The school hosts many events that are at night like talent shows and poetry shows and this year there was a glow party. Being in New York transportation anywhere is fairly simple and convenient.

Academics: Being a Funeral Service major seems to be a bit rare at school, however the program allows me to attend St.John's and graduate a Johnnie as well attend McAllsiter Institute for a more career focused program. Its the best of both worlds. Also everything on Staten Island campus is so personal that whenever you need something or have a question there is staff ready and genuinely happy to assist.

Academics: The Professors have high expectations of what you may present to them and it helps you achieve you best at all times. the workload prepares you for what the workforce will expect of you. The curriculum allows for variety in many of the core subjects and the library and writing center allow for students to get help, guidance and resources to be as successful and competent as possible. The registration process done online is fast and easy and the advisement sessions help us keep on track with our goals.

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.
