Campus Housing: I only lived on campus my freshman year and it was pretty average. There were many rules we had to follow which at times could be annoying. But the Resident Advisers were very helpful when it came to just talking to someone. They were also helpful when it came to trying to navigate and understand campus when I had just moved in and didn't really know anything about the campus.

Overall Experience: So far my experience has been pretty good. The social aspect has been very good. All of the people I have encountered are very welcoming and helpful. Also the friends I have made are friendships that will last a lifetime. From the academic standpoint, it has been somewhat tough. Transitioning from high school to college was not as easy as I expected. Also the workload is a lot more than expected. As challenging as it is, the professors are usually very helpful as long as you ask for the help. If I was going through the process of picking schools again, I would definitely pick this school all over again.

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is up to standards. Public safety is much better on our campus then on other campuses for sure. Public safety is there to help when you need it and they take the right safety measures to insure safety to the students

Overall Experience: Overall, college life hasn't been bad, and I know that with 3 more years, my college experience will be better. The professors care about how you're doing and they encourage office hours and make sure that you're on track to good grades

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center is very helpful when it comes to providing help in the career field. They're able to fix up your resume and help out with ways to get a job and the interview process.

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big on campus although there aren't that many Greeks, the Greek pride is pretty big. Greeks are always wearing their letters and are proud that they're a part of a brotherhood or sisterhood. Greek life has been great so far, with the amount of people that I've met and how many friendships have come out of joining Greek life. Non- Greeks probably view it as the Greek life is pretty big but in reality, it's only a small part of the campus but every Greek is just really prideful in their letters that they earned and the sisterhood/ brotherhood they're a part of, so it makes it look like the Greek community is huge on campus

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Spent $38 million on a coach and the basketball team can barely win, all other sports are over shadowed by the basketball team

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Hated it until I got involved, joined Greek Life and a bunch of clubs and now I love it. Academics are what you make of it, you can maintain a 4.0 if you work for it, if not then expect to be struggling

Health & Safety: The Public Safety on campus definitely do their job. It may be annoying sometimes what sticklers they can be, but at the end of the day they're doing their jobs.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had some really good professors. I've had some really bad professors. I've taken some courses I couldn't stay awake for. I've taken some courses that I actually look forward to each week. It all comes down to the student and their educational interests and the teacher of course.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: St. John's University is a very well accredited school. Many top alumni have come out of SJU. Employers love recruiting SJ students, coming to our campus at least twice a semester at our Career Fair.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms don't really bring a home feeling. They are suite style and it's rare for everyone in the entire suite to get along and actually be friends.

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.
