Scholarships: I gotta keep up a 3.0 overall gpa and 2.3 math/sci gpa for the academic scholarship which is $18k for 2 semesters. I got i think $500 for being in the CLS program. $1000 grant

4 College Sophomore

Technology: There are 2 computer labs. Marillac comp lab is "express" so ppl come and go between classes, but the comps are really slow. Sullivan comp lab is much better and there are a lot of available comps. $40 free printing is given each semester. Wifi is pretty good

Overall Experience: I love it. I love how diverse it is, how many opportunities to serve/volunteer I have, and I feel challenged but not overbearingly so. I have met amazing people that are both similar to me and radically different. People are very accepting and I think this is largely due to the diversity of the students. Joining clubs and a Christian Fellowship definitely helped me feel connected. I love being near to the city and feel as though there is just a world of opportunity around me.

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.
