St. John's University - New York Reviews
Review St. John's University - New York
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.
St. John's is a very diverse university with every possible opportunity a school can offer its students. As a freshman I was extremely intimidated going into college, but St. John's makes it so easy to get involved with tons of talks, clubs, sporting events and more. Our entire school is constantly being improved physically and is always open to creating new opportunities to make their students more comfortable at their second home. Our campus is so beautiful and located 20 minutes out of Manhattan so we have amazing internship and job opportunities. Our professors are always so willing to help, they only wan to see you succeed. Most importantly, I always feel safe here, our campus security is full of retired police officers and firefights I never worry.
I really enjoy being a part of this university. I fell in love with the campus the even way before I got enrolled into it. I love the diversity here and how welcoming and helpful the staff members are. The campus is also extremely safe to be in since public safety is always around. Gates close at night and a school ID is needed to get back on campus. The campus is close by to TJ Maxx and good/affordable food places. The university provides a lot of different events to brighten up students' days after long hours of studying and classes. There's Java Johnnies where free food and music is served on Fridays. Campus food/dorming is expensive unless you order from the dollar menu at Burger King. Of course this school is a private university, but tuition is expensive. However, the education here is extremely well and professors are all willing to help students out and make sure they do well.
