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.

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.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: The computer labs are pretty old, but they get the job done. The printing is ok, sometimes they get messed up. They get crowded before and after class and around exam time. After that you can find a spot. Wi-fi in the dorms has been a problem in the past, but I believe they solved that problem. On campus in different buildings its really easy to connect to the internet.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The campus' facilities are mostly older, built in the 80's. But we do have the D'Angelo Center which is like 4 years old and a lot of students hang there. Also all the food places are newly renovated and really good. We have a wide range of variety for food places. The athletic facilities are good. The gym is really nice and the track is pretty nice. The campus could be more modern. The dorms are about 5-6 years old so there are really nice. There are a variety of groups, more than enough, to become apart of you just have to find which one is for you.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: St. John's is very good at getting its students jobs. The career center is one of the best for a college I've seen. Also St. John's is made up of a lot of commuters. So during the day you will see a lot of students on campus, but later on in the day you will see who lives on campus and commutes. The commuters are usually cool people who are from New York or who live off campus who will show and tell you a lot of helpful things about NYC.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: St. John's is one of the most diverse schools in the nation. With that being said you can find just about any type of person on the school campus. Through going here I have been exposed to many different cultures that I didn't even know about. The guys are all diverse and they kind of hang out by crowd. The girls are all from different backgrounds, we do get a lot of jersey girls though.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: It is good I guess. There is a limit to what they can do for you anyway

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: There is nothing on campus... A few local sots off campus. Your best bet however is the city. It is pretty easy to get too but there is soooo much to do!

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are a division one school, and we love to support our athletes.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's beautiful when it is nice out. However, we have a lot of fluctuation.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is so much off campus dining right near campus, however, it isn't the healthiest.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: St. John's offers a lot of parking for commuter students.

3 College Freshman

Weather: New York is very up and down with their weather. Classes are easy access but it does snow and rain a lot. Also, It is very windy on campus!!! But, it doesn't affect anything too much. When it is nice out, everyone sits out on campus.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm very happy with my program and I think it has prepared me for my future. I wouldn't change it for the world. I still don't know what I would like to do in psychology but my goal is to open up my own clinical psychology center. I don't have any concerns about finding a job in my field because I think my school has very well prepared me.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm a psychology major. I absolutely love it and all of the professors are very intelligent, therefore they are very good at what they do. We have meetings about our major, we have a psychology mentor and it's a very sturdy program here. It's unique because the psychology majors are close, especially with the staff. All of them know me on a personal level. It will help you get an awesome job after school.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The process to get into my program was not hard at all. It was not a special application and it just went along with applying for school. All I have to do is meet a specific GPA to continue with the program. The most important part of admission of getting into the school is be yourself and be honest. Also, brag about yourself! It's important because the school only wants the best. It's smart to research St.John's values.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene is hyped up to be more than it seems. The exposure received doesn't reflect the scene as a whole

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The school enforces the rules when they can catch the students in violation. They're oblivious to most but that's not their fault. So their effort is cute, but the strictness stated in the rulebook isn't reflected in the faculty.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms are nice sized most times and the laundry rooms are extra convenient. The visitation rules are a bit looney and the restrictions during holidays which students can stay are annoying.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on St. John's campus which is a gift although there still are reports of jumpings and theft and such. The health office on campus is kind of useless but that's just my opinion

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Snow will make you fall and slide and they rarely plow the sidewalks even when you have class.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My major is Accounting and I'm in the Tobin College of Business. The workload can be a lot most of the time, you just have to do work in advance. I'm in probably one of the harder programs at my school, but I know that it will all pay off in the end. My instructors have had a lot of experience in Accounting for many years and I really like what they have to offer me. The Tobin College of Business does very well in getting really good jobs and internships for their students. We are looked at by a lot of companies because we are in NYC.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: My college has a very active activities and internship priveleges to take great advantage of. There are so many clubs in such great variety, from social clubs, to cultural, to educational. i am a legal studies major and just for legal studies there are about 3 clubs I enrolled in. Campus life is prosperous as well, there is something going on every day nonstop on campus, from sporting events to dj dances, to commuter week activities. There is always something to do

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.
