Scholarships: Although I received financial aid the first year which is what made me choose St. John's they kept lowering it and lowering it significantly, while tuition was going up and up each year. It was horrible and I owe an immense amount of student loans. I still have to get my master's.

Campus Quality: The athletic center is okay, I really like how they bring in a yoga instructor weekly and usually I'd take those classes. The campus activities such as bbqs are very fun.

Campus Food: We only have one dining hall and it's very small. The chefs are pretty good though. The price is crazy everything is so expensive. There is also another cafe on campus but it's rarely ever used I think because it's location.

Weather: The weather is nice. We have all the seasons so we get to see the leaves turn colors in the Fall, followed by the cold winter where everyone wears boots, the spring is nice and sometimes the professors let us have class outside! The campus closes some days because of the snow.

Guys & Girls: I can't just generalize the girls on campus; look around and you'll find the type of girl you're searching for.

Health & Safety: Public safety can be either too lenient or too strict. They'll try to scare you as a freshman. However, you'll always feel safe on campus.

Weather: You get the best of everything in NY. Sweltering heat and blistering cold. It depends on what you like, this is definitely not California.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: I enjoy the atmosphere that I get from Queens, but if I had to choose between here and places closer to the city, I'd go closer.

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit for soccer and basketball. The gym is state-of-the-art.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: The internet around campus will occasionally crash, but it is by no means bad. The school gives you $40 worth of paper to print per semester, and that money does roll over. We also get state of the art computers at the school.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Race and religion wise, St. John's is the most diverse campus I've ever seen. We could do a better job opening up to more people in the LGBT community, though.

Campus Food: There are a lot of varieties of food on campus. You'll never run out of choices if you know where to eat. The main dining hall isn't the best, however. The quality of the food there is hit or miss.

Majors: Getting into their pharmacy program was extremely easy and applicants do not have to be extremely talented at all.

3 College Student

Majors: Internships should be fairly easy to find since Queen is located 10 miles from NYC. Yet, Pharmacy and Law are the only majors worth attending this school for. Still, students in the pharmacy program constantly complain about work that isn't even that burdening. I was in the pharmacy program.

1 College Student

Athletics: Terrible. Absolutely no school spirit and no one attends the games. The school doesn't even have a football team and sports are overall unimportant.

1 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is terrible. There is burger king, subway, and a few other chain stores/fast food places. Absolutely no good eateries.

1 College Student

Local Area: Queens is boring and run-down. Transportation is terrible and traveling to the city is a hassle.

1 College Student

Drug Safety: No one parties or drinks and everyone is extremely boring and prefers to stay at home on friday nights.

1 College Student

Campus Housing: Not worth the money. Dorms are too strict, they confiscated my friend's microwavable oven and said that students cannot place items on the windowsills.

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.
