Saint Joseph's University Reviews
Saint Joseph's University is a well balanced 4-year university. It's location is ideal, only a quick trip into Philadelphia, but offers a large, green campus to make you feel at home. There are many near by towns that offer fun things to do, but the campus life is HUGE. There are so many ways to get involved! The academics are fair. You truly get a liberal arts experience, taking courses in all different areas of studies. The business school is career driven which is a huge positive, having a focus on getting a job in the future. SJU is a perfect size to make you feel welcome and help you step out of your comfort zone. It has about 5,000 undergraduate students allowing it to feel big and small all at the same time. Additionally, there is a large focus on service and the Jesuit ideals, allowing students to be immersed in it, but also allowing them to decipher if they want to be involved in that aspect.
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!
This is a great university. Even as a minority, I have loved my experience. In terms of developing skills and becoming a professional, this school is on target. The aspects of and experiences to develop service and leadership skills are endless and infinitely valuable!
