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.
My friend went to St John's and her experience was average. The diversity there is not as good as it should be. The professors are not as helpful. The courses however, are good. the classes are good and it consists of a small amount of students. The medical field at St. John's is big. i feel like if the other fields were as good as the medical field, then it would have a better rating. The courses were rigorous and you have to do the work. There were no "easy A's." Each grade I received I earned. The faculty were helpful and always willing to provide any assistance needed. The doctoral project was the most challenging for my friend. Although a dissertation was not required, the Applied Research Project (ARP) consists of the same elements of a dissertation. The literature review, proposal, data collection, data analysis, and dissemination is required. An oral defense of the project is also required.
