3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: I think that they could expand the gym. Although new equipment was inputted in the last year, the gym doesn't seem big enough to compensate the student population. On the other hand, it is nice that bathrooms got updated in the older buildings.

Campus Quality: Being at SJU is very amazing. With open areas, great views, and a great structure the campus is wonderfully mapped out to be conducive for whatever occasion both indoor and outdoor. With the unique lighting on the campus, every night the campus comes to life and glows still as can be in it's radiant lights. It's the best campus ever.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The facilities at St. John's are, for the most part, very nice. Carnesecca Arena and the St. Augustine Library have both been renovated. They are up-to-date and incredibly nice. Also notable is Taffner Field House, a state-of-the-art recreation gym for both athletes and regular students. The classrooms and other facilities at St. John’s are all in great shape, with the exception of Marillac Hall. The D'Angelo Center houses organizations, a coffeehouse, and many other things.

St. John's is investing heavily in updating and adding new facilities to campus. While some of the older buildings show some wear and tear, most agree that the facilities around campus are adequate. The school does a good job of trying to provide new additions, as well.

Clubs and Organizations on Campus
STJ is known for having a big diversity factor; therefore, some of the biggest and most popular clubs and organizations are those that have some ethnic affiliation attached to them. Also, Greek life is very big at STJ, and it definitely betters the experience of the student to join a fraternity/sorority.
