Parking: It's $100 for a whole year and even if you only need parking for one semester, you have to pay the full price. Unless you're on campus early, finding a good parking spot is hard to find and it's easy to get fined if you park at a faculty spot.

Overall Experience: I've met a lot of good friends. However, dorming is somewhat of a hassle sometimes. My favorite experience was probably freshman year altogether, when I was able to get back in touch with my roots through the Filipino club PARE.

Academics: The facilities are decent. Most of my classes are in the same building. The curriculum for most classes move at a good pace, although some can move at a fast pace. The psychology program is easy to get in to.

3 College Senior

Academics: The professors are pretty good but could be better. I learn a lot of the same things. The workload isn't too heavy for most of the classes and I actually enjoy many of them.

3 College Junior

Transportation: If you're an on campus student, it's pretty convenient. There are restaurants, banks, shopping all within walking distance and buses are everywhere. I am a commuter student so having a car is necessary and I live about 45 minutes away from campus.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Girls can be pretty stuck up, considering most of them come from a lot of money. Most guys drive very expensive cars and wear expensive labels.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Crime in the surrounding area of campus is somewhat common, but public safety provides you with phone numbers in case of an emergency and are always available.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics at my school are very important! Our basketball team is top in the nation under it's new head coach Steve Lavitz! Go redstorm!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: got sick. Nurse knew just what was right.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Small cafeteria on Staten Island Campus. Kind staff. Not a lot of variety on food. Would recommend not getting meal plan if you're on a budget.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Greek life is too emphasized on the Staten Island Campus

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Staten Island Campus housing are apartments. Not dorms.

Overall Experience: It has been amazing. I love the growth I have achieved, the connections I have made, and the friends that I met and love now. My education has also been such a key factor, and the people I talk to always promote the best in me. I love my school and the environment I am in. One of my favorite experiences so far has been my time with Orientation. I worked this summer with the program, and I have gained so much from it. My school is unique because it promotes Vincentian policies, meaning they promote community service and helping those in need.

Greek Life: It is highly promoted on campus by the students, but no one is forced to join. They are a very lively segment of our school.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's great. It's not too far from my home so I'm not complaining.

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.
