Degree: Education, General
Graduation Year: 2014

Education - Grades 4th -8th (new program) Overall, my experience at SJU was great. At first, I was nervous about going back to school (graduated undergrad in 2010 with a BS in Health Sciences, then spent 2 years working at a daycare because I didn't know what I wanted to do), especially because I had always been intimidated by school. My anxiety got worse as I learned that much of my grades depended on participating in class discussions, which was not a forte of mine. However, that all went away during my first class. The professors create a comfortable and safe environment, and they treat you as colleagues. What I mean is that the professors make us, the students, feel like we're all working together to help better our classroom management methods or establishing rapport with our own students, or trying to find ways to cope with flaws in the education system. I have never been close to my professors in undergrad and I was surprised to find that my SJU professors remembered my name after only one semester, and through the end of my program. Additionally, the advisors and directors of certification and student teaching have been extremely helpful; whether it's going through the certification process with you step by step or finding a student teaching placement that fits you, the staff really takes their time to ensure your success. I have also been told multiple times from my professors and advisors to keep in touch while I'm working so they follow my success to see what they can do to not only improve their Education program, but even to help me grow as a teacher. I love this because they are making the effort to keep improving and reflect on what works and what could be better to make sure SJU education students are prepared for their field. Thank you, SJU. Go Hawks!

Degree: Criminal Justice/Safety Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

I truly enjoyed my time at this university. The only issues I had a long with way with both my senior undergraduate years and in my graduate years were with the advising departments. The were unorganized and expected the students to do navigate their way through an ever-changing system. When help was requested by myself and several other students, a sarcastic remark was often received, especially in the graduate school advising department. This school is expensive and this is the last issue one would expect to receive when trying to register for a class or plan for future classes.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 1992

I wouldn't go back. I hated the city and the track and field program was not at all what they recruited me for. If I could have, I would have chosen a degree that was less general and more specific, like engineering or physical therapy do the first four years at a community college until you are mature and then do your remainder years of college after you had life experience.
