2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Honestly, the best tip I can give anybody applying for financial aid is to do well in high school. They don't care about sob stories.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: In comparison to other places, it's not fun at all.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: There aren't enough options. Also, some of my classes are directly when the dining halls are open, and I get out when they are closed.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The hall I live in the smallest and oldest building, where between 1 and 8 people share the same bathroom. The dorm rooms are small. I currently live in a quad, where the two bunk beds barely fit, let alone four desks. Although there are four people, there are only three closets. We do not have a common living area to share with suite mates, all we have is our dorm with four people crammed in. The other freshman halls on campus have common living areas, spacious rooms, etc., and we pay the exact same amount for housing as they do.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's okay, you have your average Chinese food, burger joint, and pizza places around.

Administration: It's average. The only problem is the curfew we have for guest in our dorms, we shouldn't have to have restrictions. We are in college, we are adults. It's like we are being treated like children.

Scholarships: The financial aid is terrible, they always find a way for you to owe money. They give scholarships, but you still end up owing a lot of money back. Expensive for no reason.

Campus Food: There should be more options food wise in Montigoris, it seems like the same type of food everyday. We should be able to use meal exchange more than once a day.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's truly an adjustment, from living with your parents, to moving in with people you do not know, sharing space with them and adapting to living in that small place. The rooms are somewhat small, but are durable. Coming from Georgia to New York the room sizes are completely different.

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home so I can't give too much of an opinion.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Not a lot of off-campus dining within walking distance.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: The financial aid office is quite helpful and the staffs are nice. The office can be busy at some times, but the lines move rather quickly most of the time. Keep the grades up and sometime you'll receive extra scholarships for that.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: The foods are very diverse and taste pretty good. There are a lot of choices but the price might be a little bit expensive.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: def have variety and a lot of places deliver which is very convivnent

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.
