4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I think it is a great idea to live off campus. It gives you more independence and more freedom to what you want.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think public safety is great. They do everything they can to keep this campus safe. I always feel safe when I am on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not have much of a review for Greek life because I am a Freshman. I do however feel like Greek Life is a little bit stand offish. I wanted to join a Sorority originally but after meeting some of them they didn't seem to eager of accepting.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties to me are very crowded and not that enjoyable because there are so many people there. I feel a little bit Closter phobic when attending certain parties.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I think athletics at my school are very good. Our boys basketball team host many of there home games at Madison Square Garden! I have yet to attend one but I am looking forward to it. I know basketball is suppose to be the main sport her at St John's.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am an Education major and it wasn't that hard of a process. The School of Education is so helpful with anything you need. They have a office that is open most of the time to answer any questions or help you with any doubts you have about education. They honestly want the best for you and your career.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I really love my program its a very small community at St John's. So I feel the relationships in the school of education are very close.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The freshman advisors would give you a hard time.

Administration: St John's is a Catholic, Vincentian school so they are a little strict on things other schools may not be. For example our visitation process is very stick. We cant even have somebody from another dorm over without signing them in and getting the a pass to get it. Other than that they are pretty average with other issues.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Public Safety can be rude and judgmental.

Local Area: The local area leaves much to be desired and not many activities can be done here, but the transportation is wonderful and can get you to the city fairly quickly (if it doesn't have any delays, that is)

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration itself is okay, it had some issues like having to go through hoops to sign someone in and they crack hard on the drinking (depends on who catches you, really)

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.
