St. John Fisher College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
From the moment I stepped on campus at St. John Fisher, I was welcomed with open arms and became a part of the Fisher family. The curriculum challenged me in many different ways, preparing me for graduate school and life as a professional. In the end, I wouldnt trade anything for my time at St. John Fisher because of the lifelong relationships I built there and how the school allowed me to grow into the person I am today.
St. John's College is truly one of a kind. There are few schools that offer a great books program, even fewer schools where that program is the only major, and only one school where that major is the center of campus life. Some may consider it a weakness that St. John's encloses its students in a bubble from the outside world in order to think deeply about great books that are over 100 years old, or even 1000 years old, but that isn't a fair look at what the Program offers. On the surface, St. John's offers a look into the great works of Western Civilization, but in essence, the program offers a glimpse into what has persisted from thousands of years ago up until now, and is still continuing to persist: that is the relationship and interaction between man and the world around him. St. John's College considers the inquiry into this relationship so seriously that it influences even leisurely activities such as the intramural program, joking in the dining hall, or drinking with your friends on the weekend. If four years of this sounds appealing, then St. John's is the school for you.
I could not have asked for a better undergraduate college to attend. They do not call us "Fisher Family" for no reason. The whole community and atmosphere here is overwhelming open and comfortable for any one to join in on. We are an quite a small college, which I personally love! Being able to pass people and know most of them, or at least some of them is comforting to me and makes me feel like I am right at home. The professors here are the same way here. Since the school is smaller, every professor that I have had knows my name and remembers me years after I have had them. They truly care about their student's success and needs and this was proved to me even more so during my current year as a senior when applying to law schools. A handful of professors took the time to help look over things needed for the application process and took time out of their busy schedules to write me letters of recommendation. This was all extra, out of class time that they dedicated to me to help me succeed and get accepted into law school. When I told them that I had been accepted they were over the moon about it, and could not be happier for me. This was one of the best feelings and just secured my love and passion for Fisher even more. I had the best four years here, and could not imagine myself going anywhere else for my undergraduate career.
It's a small program but has great professors. Not impressed with the undergrads who seem like most just got in because their families could afford it. Pittsford is over priced and stuck up. Fine school to commute to but I would never live on campus.
The fisher nursing program is one of the best programs in the state of New York. It has paved the way for me in my career thus far as a critical care nurse and the in depth studying and practice in the sim-labs really prepared me for real life nursing care in the hospital. The smaller class sizes and experience/knowledge these professors have that they share with students is second to none. Fisher is an excellent place for any potential nursing degree student who wants to stand out and lead others with their knowledge and skills in the profession upon graduation.
