4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The students all love to complain and whine about Montgoris, (the cafeteria) but in reality it's quite good compared to other places. I toured University of Miami's, Wake Forest University's, UNC WImington's, and College of Charleston's dining halls, and I definitely would say St. John's was a little bit better than each. It does get old, but can you expect. Other places on campus in the food courts are solid, and meal exchange is awesome and something you won't find at other universities.

Party Scene: I mean it's in New York City, so if you can't find anything to do on a weekend night here then you probably won't be able to anywhere else in the world. The Lacrosse parties, Pi Kappa Phi parties, and Kappa Sigma parties are usually a good time. Traditions bar is always a go to nearby, especially on $1 shot/beer nights. The nearby clubs are pretty ghetto, but just take a quick ride towards Astoria and you'll get the best.

Administration: Typical of most college residence rules: no drinking, drugs, or smoking in the dorm. At orientation they will have you freaked out because you'll think you just entered Auschwitz with the seeming seriousness of the rules, but the reality is that it's not too bad. Me and my suitemates drink regularly in our room, come back obviously intoxicated often, and smoke l's on campus benches. As long as you don't blaze out the room or try to have parties in your dorm room you'll be fine.

Campus Quality: When it comes to campus activities and places of socialization St. John's is up to par. Student life on campus is amazing everyday you could count on something going on whether it be an athletic game, an event or of course a party. I feel if you are not living on campus for at least the first two years of attending the university than you truly missed out. Its a great experience.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I, personally did not have a internship yet but from others' experiences i hear our internship program is one of the best. Peers of mine told me that sometimes their internships turned into to jobs and the pay was great. I do plan to have an internship starting my junior year and I know i won't have any problem finding any. The amount of assistance St. John's gives you makes this troublesome task seem like a piece of cake.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: As far as the social atmosphere the housing gets a A+++ but when it comes to the pricing and convenience the grade is not as high. Only one building, which is a freshman building is close to classes and all the other recreational buildings (food courts, fitness center, etc.). All the rest of the resident buildings are far from "civilization" , especially Donovan Hall. The housing process takes days for confirmation for those coming in and leaving. This process to me could be extremely more organized.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: St. John's has many different campuses but the main campus is located in Queens, Ny. The borough of Queens is already known as extremely diverse and that basically describes St. John's University as a whole. We are considered one of the most diverse universities, with students from all over the world. The campus has a beautiful sight of NYC's skyline and the sight of the campus itself it also beautiful as well.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sports at St. John's University are of very high quality. All the sport teams are division one and nothing less. As far as school support/spirit, i would would say we could do better. Athletic facilities are all around my campus as well such as 3 different sport fields, weight rooms, fitness centers and much more athletic activities that help improve fitness and health.

5 College Junior

Majors: The process of getting into my program was ridiculously easy. Even when I changed my major from Television and Film Production to Communication Arts all it took was a meeting with my dean. Babycakes. Other programs in other schools may have more difficult protocol barriers to get past though, such as the business school.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: A couple franchise options and not too bad choices. There are some outlets for the health conscious. The prices, however, are a bit steep.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Queens, a borough by NYC is diverse, safe and fun!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Ever since I went to St. John's University open-house with my father, I looked into the Pharmacy or the Physician Assistant major. Then I ran into the Radiologic Sciences major and I met my clinical coordinator. Once I discovered the Radiologic Sciences major, I knew I wanted to pursue in that flexible career instead and I fell in love with what I am doing. I have always wanted to work in the healthcare field, but I wanted to find the right branch to fit in well. Radiologic Sciences was the right answer for me and I am very happy I had chosen this major. With my 3.4 GPA from high school, a good SAT score and plus the numbers of community service hours I have accomplished, the hard work paid off. I wanted to help people who are injured or sick with cancer. I have a good patience and a strong heart to care for those in need, being in the healthcare industry. I am very pleased and I thank God for giving me the chance to get into St. John's University, a great school, and also to learn the aspects of healthcare. The patients are the most important to the Radiologic Technologists. I love what I am doing as a Radiologic Sciences major. I never regretted this choice, because my career goals are endless. I plan to work in a hospital or in private practice, and I can also go back to school and earn my masters. I could be a radiographer, a mammographer, a sonography, a CT scan technologist, and MRI technolologist, a clinical teacher, PET scanner, a radiation therapist or a clinical coordinator. With the graduate school options, I could become a physician assistant or a doctor even! I would rather just sick with 4-6 years or school and explore the many branches of Radiologic Technology. The St. John's University Radiologic Sciences program is great, with a wonderful education leading to endless opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I have never had an internship before. I do plan to apply for an internship in the near future, probably around junior year. I want to because it is required for my major, as a Radiologic Sciences student. We have to intern at clinical sites such as private Radiology practices and hospitals. Not only that it is required, but I know I can improve in the career that I am in with internships that are available at St. John's University. I would help the poor and the under-privileged, working at different hospitals around the New York City area. All I would have to do is apply for the non-paid internship under the main St. John's website under my account, for it to get approved by my Dean and the place where the internship is held. With this approval of the future internships I will take in the future, I will fulfill the needs of the community. Having an internship does look good on my resume when applying for jobs around my area, and I will reach out towards my goals with working in a non-paid internship from my school.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the Radiologic Sciences program at St. John's University. It is an 128 credit program. 72 students are accepted into the program each year. It is one of the most fast growing jobs in the United States. Healthcare needs personnel to assist the physicians and most importantly, the patients. You learn about all the different aspects of healthcare. The first two years you work on your cores/electives and also the healthcare classes required for my major. Since it is a 4 year Bachelor's Degree Program, the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences at St. John's University provides a diverse wonderful education for each student to fulfill. For my major, you get interviewed during March of your sophomore year to get into the St. John's Andrew J. Bartilucci Center. The Bartilucci Center is a few blocks down from St. John's. They look at your transcript, GPA, extra curriculars and most importantly, your overall potential to work in healthcare. The Dean of the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences loves all of her students and is willing to give each of us that opportunity to follow our dreams. After freshman and sophomore year with your Radiologic Sciences major, you go into the clinical stage during Junior and Senior year. It is 5 days a week, 8am-4pm. For 3 days, you go to lecture/lab. Then for 2 days out of the 5, you go into clinical working/interning at hospitals. During the summer between junior and senior year you work in NYC fulfilling the requirement of clinical hours and earning the credits. You get used to clinical, it is hands on and it improves one's public speaking skills and interaction with the patients. You learn how to position patients, use different branches of Radiologic Technology and to handle situations during an emergency. Once you achieve your bachelor's degree at St. Johns University for Radiologic Sciences, it is indeed worth the work put in, leading to a secure job in healthcare. The options are endless in the healthcare field!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: When I applied to St. John's University, I just had to send out my application. I am majoring in Radiologic Sciences. I received an acceptance letter saying I got into my program. That is when I finally submitted my enrollment. It was relatively easy. You can waive the St. John's University application with whatever major you choose. They give you that option, since the application is generally $30.00. I am working on my cores/electives plus healthcare courses required for my major. After freshman year and sophomore year of completing that, then I get interviewed to get into the Andrew J. Bartilucci Center for my final 2 years. That center is the clinical site and it gives me the opportunity to intern at hospitals as well and do clinical there. Not all majors require an interview halfway through college to get into another center. It depends on the major. Look into the different majors available at St. John's University.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Nightlife for students at St. John's University is average. The nightlife for students over 21 is vibrant. You can go to any bar or club in New York City. For the students 21 and younger, there are some clubs that let 18+ in with a student ID and license. There are many places to go to, your choices are endless all throughout New York City. From Queens, you can take the Q46 bus to Kew Gardens subway then take the F or E train to Manhattan and go wherever you want. Make sure to get back to campus at a decent time, not too late at night. If you ant to spend a little less money, I would recommend the house parties with your friends around the area or the frat/sorority houses that provide huge parties as well. The only thing that is off limits is drinking or smoking in the dorms, unless you would want to do it at your own risk and get caught. Just be safe with a group of friends and have fun in the New York City night life every weekend!

Transportation: There are shuttles between each campus. There is also easy access into the city through the MTA system which is really inexpensive.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The only real problem I have with the dining is that the dining hall almost always has the exact same thing and usually not very well made. Otherwise there are a lot of great options around but the hours suck. I wish the dining hall was open for longer. Also on the weekends the food sucks because all you can eat is the dining hall. If they just extended the hours it would be perfect.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: For the most part everything is great. There are some really awesome and beautiful sights on campus but there are those older buildings which need some work. Also more outlets in the classrooms would be nice.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: For the most part everything is clean and runs efficiently but my roommate called facilities about three times and they still have not come in to fix our heater/ac.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: St. John's is extremely diverse. That is one of the main things I love about the campus. You can find any ethnicity here and any one from any background

5 College Senior

Diversity: St. John's University is one of the most diverse university's in the world. People come from different parts of world to come to this school. The school is a catholic university, but supports all religious beliefs. People also have many different interest but could meet a group of people to find common ground. Whether you are White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Gay, Straight, Christian, Catholic, Muslim, etc., St. John's University has it all!!

Health & Safety: Public Safety at St. John's University is very strict. They do make sure that students are safe on a daily basis and update all students of anything reported about criminal activity around the school, especially when a student is involved.

4 College Senior

Academics: I am an accounting major at St. John's University. The program has many opportunities for its students to do well. The curriculum is challenging but the workload is beneficial. There are many networking events and campus recruiting in order for students to get internships and jobs. The business school makes sure that students know what they need to do to graduate and offer a five-year program in order to receive your master's degree.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene isn't big but somehwat visible. I don't see peer pressure. Safe school

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.
