4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: a lot of variety. Everything is a little pricey but there are a lot of affordable places. Theres a little bit of everyhting and enough to keep you interested.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: I am a transfer student and the TSS transfer student services has done everything to make me feel right at home.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The school Is in NYC there are endless possibilities for off-campus dining, basically everywhere you go will find something inexpensive and delicious.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: First of all its located in the most amazing city in the world. Aside form that campus life is great and you meet new people everyday. Also they offer a global passport program for new students to go to their Rome campus for a week and earn a credit for that week and its only $500 dollars.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The strictness on this campus is excessive when it comes to swiping in and out of the buildings gets kind of annoying. the guest policy also is terrible but I guess this level of security is expected at a private, Catholic university in the city.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am a Legal Studies major. The major thing I dislike about this major, which is the same for all majors, is the amount of classes that don't help you in your major. There are so many unnecessary classes but I guess you get that with every major and school. The workload for some of the classes are a bit ridiculous especially if they are those that do not pertain to your major. The professors I have had a good for the most part. There are some that I'd rather not comment on.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love my program. the classes are great and the professors are really there to help you.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The process of getting into the science majors can be tough. You are expected to have a good GPA and take math and chemistry placement tests. The courses taken are also extremely tough and they challenge the students. But switching between majors is relatively easy and they help through out the entire process.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The History Department at St.John's is awesome! The professors are very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Technology: They do encourage you to use computers in the classrooms. Printers are always up and running.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I personally think our facilities are up to date, especially the D'Angelo Center which is pretty cool and modern.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The main dining hall food is less than great. You have to pick and choose what's good, and that'll take some experience. The meal exchange places like Taco Bell, Burger King, Freshens, a Mexican place, and a sandwich place are always a good option. My favorite place to spend my meal points is Dunkin Donuts.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nightlife is what you make of it. There are definitely plenty of house parties to go to, you just have to know the right people. The local bars also allow the students to come because that's where the make majority of their income.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are more convenience stores rather than restaurants around campus. Restaurants that are around are basically average pizza/ pasta placed. Nothing fancy, but NYC is near so you can explore your options there even though that tends to be inconvenient.

3 College Student

Campus Quality: There all ok but the D'angilo center is pretty nice

4 College Student

Local Area: It's ok I dont go out too often but there are a lot of options.

Health & Safety: i've never felt unsafe here, there are public safety officers everywhere and tight security. No one without a STJ pass or stormcard gets passed the gate after 11pm.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They really push you to get involved with Greek life, and a lot of people tend to join fraternities and sororities on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There's several local spots near campus for students to go to during the week such as bars and lounges. When the weather is nice there tends to be a lot of house parties. And every now and then event/parties are thrown at clubs nearby. It's just a short ride to the city as well, so there's no lack of things to do.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The campus is beautiful, the surrounding area isn't the safest or the most attractive, but that's Queens. The city is a short ride away.

3 College Senior

Majors: I am somewhat satisfied with my major program, but immensely impressed with my minor program. If I could, I would have majored in Rhetoric

3 College Senior

Majors: Opportunities for internships at St. John's is awesome. Most of them, however, are unpaid ones.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: The food, depending on where you dine, is reasonably tasty, and even delicious in some places. However, the cost of dining on campus is ridiculous, especially if you do not have a meal plan.

Diversity: We accept all races, but unfortunately some are struggling with accepting homosexuals and atheists.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The nightlife here is interesting. Here in Queens there are a few places to go to life clubs and bars but only a few. You can go to Manhattan and Brooklyn and find a plethora of places to go. Its just how far are you willing to travel. Also there are house parties around here that are usually good because most of the time its free and better music. But if you really can't find something to do you can make the most of it yourself in your dorm room or apartment and party with some friends of choice. You can make the fun or wait to find the fun, but most of the time you won't have a problem finding things to do on the weekend.

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.
