4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public Safety is always around. Also, I have been to the health care office only twice, but both times, they helped me immediately.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: I have never been in an area that is so diverse in every way. It helps to make people who go here more accepting of everyone even if they're different.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I wish I went to more basketball games, but I enjoyed the soccer games a lot. I was not a fan of soccer until I started going to the games.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't been to many parties, but the ones off campus seem to be the most popular.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: On this campus, Non-Greeks are not treated much different than the Greeks, but it does help you make more friends and gets you involved on campus.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: It's very easy to fall in love with the people and scenery here. Everything around campus is easy to access and there is not a necessity that I cannot go get by walking or bus/subway ride.

Transportation: The bus is at various places right next to campus, so it's convenient to get pretty much anywhere in New York.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't see very many drugs around, but they are probably there, I just don't take part in it.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Academics are good. Great opportunity.

3 College Junior

Majors: The program is okay, I think they need to spread the curriculum out a little bit because they pile all the hard classes together. Internship programs need to be discussed with the science students especially.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: You don't really notice it unless you yourself choose to participate. ADHD drugs are a problem.

4 College Junior

Technology: the school supplies a laptop that is great.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: DAC is a great place to hang out and relax, it's great for late night study sessions because it's open late. The library is my favorite place except they need to let you bring food into the cafe at least.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The school promotes a lot of games.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Public safety is basically everywhere.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Reginas is good however, it gets boring after awhile and Qdoba is really god however you would need a car to get there.

3 College Junior

Academics: The workload is a lot, and I feel as if there should a club/organization that allows us to shadow labs before we even begin our professional year.

3 College Junior

Weather: Extremely bipolar weather, some days it will be hot and the next day it's snowing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is convenient and fun to live on campus and experience that aspect of college life. Space is a bit crowded and the rules are a tad too strict.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Some people have said that the off campus apartments are very convenient and give students a bigger sense of independence.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The F subway is just a fifteen minute walk off campus and there are a few bus stops located at different school gates. There is also a taxi service nearby that charges reasonable prices.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The security on campus is very high as there are cameras and safety monitors everywhere. However, the health services could be improved upon.

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.
