Overall

Many of the teachers here are very caring of their students and are amazing people.

Academics

Workload is manageable though some classes give way to much work considering what they are in the scheme of the program (pharmacy). Professors are great

College Life

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.

Overall

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.

Academics

This is a Division I school, but I expected some degree of concern for the students as far as academics go. When I registered with a counselor I was just another number. I was a Communications major, looking to focus on film. When enrolling me in classes, I wasn't asked preferences, or given options, I was just put into classes that filled my requirements. I think maybe if the process hadn't been so rushed, and I had the opportunity to take classes that were more "me" I may have had a better experience.

College Life

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.
