College Freshman

Majors: I'm not sure about that right now.

Parking: The parking on my campus does not cost too much, just about $100 a semester I believe. Usually the parking spots do not fill up because the parking lots are huge. There are about 4-5 parking lots, and for people that want to park off-campus, it isn't really hard to find a parking spot because the campus is in a suburban area, and usually students park around the houses, and at the same time, they aren't too far away from the campus.

Campus Quality: Many of the students that don't even live on campus are on campus ALL the time. We have the biggest student lounge known as the "living room" or another called the "Coffee House" where students meet up to do their group projects while drinking beverages from Starbucks that is located inside the Coffee House. However, if you want a more quiet area to study on your own you can always go to the library where they have a ton of space for you to study. The green spaces at St. John's University is enormous. We have this lawn right in front of our library called "The Great Lawn" and a lot of students go there to lay down or just enjoy the scenery. We also have campus events and activities almost every week

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of take out places near the school if you are feeling lazy. The food around campus isn't amazing but worth going to if you are up for something new

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food here is good but not amazing. Try using your meal exchange every time to make your moneys worth!

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Try finding a house/apt off campus if you can. You can definitely save a lot of money this way.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Just a reminder that this school is catholic, so there are a lot of rules about drinking. The school is practically in the middle of Queens. You take the bus or car to go to places

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is still difficult to deal with. Just keep on top of your school work and you will have plenty of time to apply to scholarships

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Super nice people and really helpful around campus

College Freshman

Majors: I plan on interning soon after freshman year. I just want to see if I am able to manage my time this semester

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus is not the best for those who need space, definitely expect sharing with 2 or 3 people if you are going to be dorming as a freshman

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There's plenty to do on the weekends and during the week. If you dorm on-campus, activities in the dorm can help you have financially cheap fun.

4 College Student

Technology: Wifi everywhere. Big on Technology

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.
