St. John Fisher College Reviews
Something I would change, however, would be the parking on campus. The college is small to begin with, with about 3000 undergraduate and graduate students total. The parking can be tight as there are staff and students who are looking for spots but must park on the opposite side of campus if the individual is running late. As it is, this individual would have to sprint in order to get to class on time or just a few minutes after it began. This is such a small price to pay for what you get in return at the college in terms of faculty, memories and more.
