From St. John's University - New York

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.
