College Life Rating

Not very concerned about student well-being. The dining hall locks students outside in 30 degree weather before 7am. Not exactly the safest or nicest thing to do. Clubs are limited. Campus safety is okay.

College Life Rating

The athletics at St. John's are impeccable. They are a Division I school with an outstanding basketball team. Discounts are given to students to attend games at the Garden, and if nothing else, that brings a sense of community to the school. Greek Life is basically non-existent. Because there are no actually Greek houses on campus, all sororities and fraternities are based out of dorm rooms and run an extremely selective rush process. You don't hear much about the Greek houses after rush, they pretty much disappear.
