St. John's University - New York Reviews
Aside from its numerous Division 1 athletic teams and gorgeous campus attractions, SJU has an extensive umbrella of support systems and student life opportunities for its Johnnies. There truly is a group for everyone. Students are well taken care of, and the University holds its name in high regard with good reason. Looking for a party? Don't let the Catholic mission fool you. St. John's has as many opportunities to balance social life and academia inside and outside of her walls. Indulge in free fairs, activities, games, amusements, food, and refreshments. Academia in SJU is guided by deans and advisors of your choosing in your given college but remember, like in any college and a lesson to hold throughout your years: fight for what you want!
Im a freshman and I absolutely love this school! The campus is big, but the buildings are beautiful and have everything you need. Theres a lot of events and free stuff they give out. The food spots are amazing for whenever you need lunch, a snack or anything. The campus is diverse with all races and everyone is welcoming and helpful. The class sizes are small, so its much easier to develop a relationship with your peers and professors. The school is lovely and I would recommend anyone to come here. The tuition is high, thats my only downside. Im studying education, to become a high school social studies teacher. Im hoping to win this so I can pay this semesters tuition because I do not want to transfer out of here. Its just such a great school, its always always welcoming like home.
St. John's University is a very diverse school, there are so many people from different cultures, religions, nationalities, backgrounds that you could meet. The small academic learning environment gives students the change to form connections with students and professors and learn in a easier way. The one campus activities allows students to get involved and helps students meet new people. St. John's athletics also allows students to become involved, there are so many different sport teams on campus, students have the opportunity to go to the games. There are also many different clubs you can join in order to become involved.
