Saint Joseph's University Reviews
Choosing to attend Saint Joe's for my undergraduate degree was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The class sizes are small and intimate, allowing for professors to work closely with their students. Classes are never taught by TAs and most of the professors have doctorate degrees in the field that they are teaching in. They are approachable and always happy to help out. There is always something to do on campus, whether it be a sporting event, club meeting, party, or University sponsored event, and the city is only a short train ride away! We have a phenomenal business school, and our Risk Management program is the best in the country. Our liberal arts program is also top notch. For those wanting to enter the medical field, SJU is connected to Thomas Jefferson University and offers some accelerated masters and doctorate programs. Many students are able to travel abroad or participate in a co-op. SJU truly is an incredible school!
Saint Joe's is quite expensive, however, it is a beautiful campus! I studied psychology there for 4 years and loved it, other than the costs. I am not a big partier, I much rather stay in on the weekends with a good movie and a few good friends. Yet, even in the college atmosphere you can still find others who share similar interests with you! The professors were awesome and really contributed to my learning. My advisor was also really helpful and through the helps of my supports I landed an internship and then a job! Some of the dorm buildings are a little bit outdated, but they are still very nice. I would recommend trying to get any type of grants, scholarships, etc. and try to save as much as you can!
So far, my experience at Saint Joseph's has been pretty great. I have slowly started getting involved with numerous amount of clubs and activities the school has to offer. At first, it was slow around campus and I was getting bored, but within a few weeks there were events held on campus, job offerings, clubs, and club sports. Saint Joseph's University has a ton of opportunities for students to get involved with the school community and the school's surrounding communities. I, personally, really enjoy the service opportunities offered to students. I participate in Weekly Service and once a week I go and work in a kindergarten class. I feel as if I am connected more into the community than I was even in my own hometown. I would like to see the dining hall improve a little more. It isn't bad, but could be updated.
