3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: You can definitely find it but its a bit pricey.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They'll give you financial aid but often times you have to fight in order to get more.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There are plenty of majors and minors you can choose from.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: With the exception of the pharmacy program if you maintain decent grades you can switch programs quite easily.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The shuttle bus service is very useful but the school is for some reason trying to get rid of it.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: The sign in policies are awful and Public Safety will never let you get away with anything. As soon as you start having fun on campus the party is usually over.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There isn't really a typical St.John's student. The campus is extremely diverse and everyone can find a group of friends that they can relate too. The best way to meet new people at St.John's is by going out and joining Greek Life.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The DAC is really nice but all of the other buildings are a bit out of date.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: With the exception of basketball nobody really pays attention to any of the sports.

Greek Life: I have many friends who are in a variety of Sororities and Fraternities, I myself am in a Theater Honor Society. They are a presence on campus but not enough that you feel bad about not joining one. There are many organizations on campus that one can join so everyone finds their own niche. Pretty decent parties for the most part.

Campus Housing: I had campus housing for three years living in Hollis, Century and the Townhouses. The Townhouses are gorgeous and a really great transition to having your own apartment. It's a little expensive but it sort of makes "your college experience".

Local Area: I love Queens. i think it has a good blend of being in the city but also having the suburban feeling. Transportation is easy to get to the city or Long Island.

Scholarships: I received an Academic scholarship as well as a scholarship for my work in the Theater. It helped with some of the cost but my financial circumstances allowed me to not qualify for financial aid.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Alcohol and Drugs are present off campus, sometimes on but overall nobody looks at you differently if you don't partake.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Really diverse crowds. Everyone finds their own group of friends that they mesh in well with. It can be from Greek Life, organizations or just meeting people from classes.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is MUCH cheaper than living on campus. I personally live a 15 minute walk away. Fresh Meadows is a wonderful area to live and very safe.

5 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: The q46, 30 and 31 all stop in front of campus. The subway is a 20 minute bus ride away!

5 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Diversity at St. John's is incredible. I have met people from not only different states but countries!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: They allow you to take an internship for credits. They also have internship fairs about twice a year. The career center is also great with helping build up your resume.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Sometimes it feels as though the campus has its own weather. It tends to be very windy at times.

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.
