"To future students, St johns university has a great student community but about 85% of the faculty and staff don't see you much more then anything but a child. The deans and assistants at the school are unorganized and do not show passion or care for you as a student. They rather control every aspect of your college life and move on to the next student. Unless your willing to push multiple buttons and get more then one person involved, then you will be here awhile. Favorites are prioritized and you are just another student id number when asking for help. A messy class enrollment system, an even messier financial aid services system, you are going to drive yourself to the point of insanity. If it wasn't for the select few people in this university that give me a reason to want to be here then I would have transferred along time ago."

"My time at St. John's was the most productive period I've had in my life up to that point. In the last half decade, Ive been working within the field of philosophy passionately. My focus is on Phenomenology, a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of experiences, and my area within this is branch is aesthetics. I was born in the Caribbean island-nation Haiti, so a lot of my work focuses on culture formation, expression, and identity via aesthetic experiences in black and indigenous cultures, which St. John's extremely diverse student helped in terms of encountering and learning from other students. While my undergraduate degree was in the field of marketing, I eventually obtained a philosophy research assistantship while still an undergraduate at St. Johns University, working under professor Douglas Rasmussen, where I also worked closely within the fields of economics and political science. My research position allowed me to become a TA, reuniting me with my mentor and aiding him in teaching intro to philosophy courses. Meanwhile, the Peter J. Tobin's business school's professors allowed me to engage with and attend conferences with various people within the intersections of management, business, finance, and economics, while working closely with career services, to provide me with some extra background preparation for the private sector."

"St. John's is an incredibly unique school. Located in one of the most diverse places in the world, the university experience prepares you not only with a college education, but with the ability to live among people from all walks of life. A smaller university, the experience itself was incredibly nurturing. With hidden gems like the rhetoric program, international studies track and the writing center, the university has avenues for all types of students. Although there is no football team, or big game days, there are plenty of unique experiences that make St. John's students one of a kind."

"Attended SJU must be the biggest mistake I made in my whole life. I was a transfer student of SJU, which means that I gotta to deal with all kinds of Department such as financial aid, administration, and registration all the time. The most disappointing thing was the staff in any department mentioned above never functioned. Every time when I got a problem, I either gave a a call or visited concerned office, all the personnel worked there just did not know how to help you resolve the issue, all they can do just told you sorry they cannot make it but they will let some supervisor know about it and try to see if it will be worked out later. However, they would never contact you later or really care about your concernes. If you did not keep contacting them yourself your problems just would never be done well. After massive terrible experience with SJU I finally learned that never pick any colleges that do not have a effective processing system or helpful personnel. Otherwise you can easily be driven crazy any time anywhere!"

"St. John's is a great college with amazing diversity and study abroad opportunities. The name of the school carries a lot of weight in NYC and I was able to gain 6 internships while attending school. All of my professors were passionate about their subjects and I didn't have to think twice about choosing the school to get my masters degree."

"St. John's is a great university and has improved since I was a student. I highly recommended their study abroad programs. The campus is well kept and has such a rich history. As a non-Catholic at catholic university, I believe the affiliation with the Vincentians enhanced my education."

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 1982
"St. John's University offered a wide variety of courses for me to tailor my Communications degree to my particular interests. They also had a rigorous requirement of business courses at that time which was akin to a Business minor. I was challenged and taught to think logically and to be my own person. St. John's also offered excellent job placement. I not only got my internship through St. John's but also my first full time post graduation position."

"St. John's University's New York City location can be strategic and provides many opportunities. Only 30 minutes away from Manhattan, all of New York City is only a subway ride away. Tuition and living costs are unreasonably high and match its educational standards."

"When I was a student, what was good for me was the diversity of students at the school. I was able to understand more cultures. St. Johns prepared me for the future. The staff, professors are supportive. I would choose St.Johns over again if i could."
