St. John's was a bit overwhelming. I loved the big city atmosphere, but I entered as a transfer student, and in 2003 the school was not quite what I was looking for. If I had gone in as a freshman, I probably would have gotten to experience more of the social atmosphere, but as a transfer I was secluded from orientation activities. The campus, while beautiful, was mainly for commuter students, so there really was no sense of community.
