The St. John’s 150-year legacy is Catholic, Vincentian, metropolitan, and global. Graduates are not only employable, but, when they leave campus, they take with them all of the hope, compassion, awareness, and courage that can only come from knowing what it means to be a global citizen.
It is often the case that a student enters college unsure of what program they want to pursue. St. John’s supports this journey by offering more than 100 undergraduate programs from which to choose.
St. John’s students know that leadership is not just about a grade point average or a BIG EAST championship. A St. John’s-educated leader finds career inspiration from wanting to make the world a better place. This is proven over and over again by the 190,000 alumni who help create a network of opportunity that has helped current students land internships in places like The White House, Major League Baseball, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, and so many others.

St. John's University - New York Reviews
- Residence life is good and the food is not bad! The roommate pairing wizard is great for freshmen - loved mine.
- Academics are so-so. I was a philosophy major, which was a fairly good program (3.5/5 for me), but I took many electives. The film classes were great, as were the music classes. Language programs (Italian) were a bit lackluster - very slow pace.
- There are a fair number of house parties (since everyone asks!) and bars in the city are a bit far for a Friday night, but worth the trip. I personally loved going to live comedy shows.
Overall, I'm fairly happy with my experience. The immediate area, Queens, is not especially interesting, but Manhattan is about an hour away, which is wonderful. I threw myself into the opportunities that came my way and ended up really enjoying the school by junior and senior year. Good luck with your search!
