I had a great time at St. John's! Being apart of the Big East Conference was really cool and fun. The sports really brought the school together. The night-life was fun, and also Manhattan is not far away. The bars close-by were true college bars. There are subways and busses very close by. There are banks, restaurants, stores, etc is walking distance. The campus is very pretty, you don't feel like you are in Queens when you are on campus. St. John's offers plenty of majors and it was an average academic college depending on what major you are in. My professors were always helpful and the classes are not big. There is something always going on. It is very easy to make friends. Fraternity and sorority life is popular here.
Review St. John's University - New York
The athletics at my school in terms of school spirit, student involvement and such is actually really, really good! My friends and I attend mostly the soccer games at our school whenever we have a chance and sometimes the basketball games, but whenever we go, the gymnasium and field are packed with students supporting our school. Our teams play well too, and the better we play, the better our school spirit. Regardless, we always cheer on our sports teams.
St. John's University is a subpar school, very deserving of its normal status as a safety. It has high tuition for very little return, unless you are taking the pharmacy, PA, or law programs. Even then, the education quality you would get is questionable in most cases.

Still, if you don't mind the education quality, St. John's University has a good campus with minimal traveling distance into the various cores of New York City. At the same time, its suburban-esque location in Queens allows for various interesting fauna to make their homes here, including hawks, raccoons, and even the occasional opossum.
