St. John's University, from a commuter's perspective, is a decent university. As a freshmen, I've had great professors. There are always events on campus. You cannot get bored here. As for the seriousness of the school, it's not Harvard or Columbia. It's a school with opportunities (internships and all) but it's not going to motivate you to be the best. If you're not self motivated, then don't come here because the students are living the typical college life and experience. It's great for having fun and a great experience with classmate. The students are very friendly! But like I said, if you're looking to have an ambitious attitude, go to Columbia. This is a great College for the atmosphere and helpfulness.

I love how my school is so friendly and inviting. They constantly have events to help get people out of their shells, and make people feel more welcome at school, which is what I love about my school. I love how my school at a Commuter Appreciation event which is designed mostly for Commuters, they had a DJ booth, food, balloon animals, and even snakes! That has been one of my favorite experiences so far. Another amazing experience I had is that during Christmas time, they bring horse carriages to our school, and it allows you to ride them. I loved how they were bringing the Christmas spirit on campus. So far I am very happy I chose to come here, and am extremely grateful they accepted me.

The athletics at my school in terms of school spirit, student involvement and such is actually really, really good! My friends and I attend mostly the soccer games at our school whenever we have a chance and sometimes the basketball games, but whenever we go, the gymnasium and field are packed with students supporting our school. Our teams play well too, and the better we play, the better our school spirit. Regardless, we always cheer on our sports teams.
