5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are public safety officers around all day everyday. During the day you see pubic safety driving around campus and off campus. There is a hotline that we can all 24/7 if we need assistance or if there is an emergency. There is virtually no campus crime and when there is a crime involving an assault or attack on a student there is an email sent out by the public safety department. At 11pm all gates are closed except Gate 6 and students are required to swipe their school ids to get through the gate. It is attended by two public safety officers from 11 to 7am. So far, I feel safe on and off campus around the school.

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.
