I have gained such an eye opening experience st St. John's University. I have met amazing, accomplished and unforgettable people and my degree has opened doors for me within the marketing world which allowed me to develop and learn fundamentals necessary to survive in the business world. St. John's has also deepened my Catholic faith and practice of giving back to its community through its on campus activities and programs. This school has so much to offer its students and will always provide unforgettable times!

St. John's is a very diverse college that is blended with different cultures. The classroom size at St. John's is small to medium size, which is good because although the campus is very big, you can still get one to one attention with the professors. The professors are very encouraging, understanding, and passionate in what they teach. The campus also has many student events and activities, not only for those who dorm, but they also have events for commuters which allows them to be more involved in the St. John's community!
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!
