From St. John's University - New York

The St. John’s 150-year legacy is Catholic, Vincentian, metropolitan, and global.

St. John's students receive the preparation they need to be successful after graduation as well as the hope, compassion, awareness, and courage that can only come from knowing what it means to be a global citizen.

At 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 194,000 alumni who help create a network of opportunity that has helped current students land internships in places like The White House, MLB, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, and many others.

AT ST JOHN'S, OUR FOCUS IS ON YOU. Stjohns.edu/Apply
