Saint Johns University Top Questions

Describe your school to someone who's never heard of it.


St. John's used to be an all-male school founded by a community of Benedictine monks. It has since merged with the all-female College of St. Benedict which is located about eight minutes away in the town of St. Joseph, MN, and which was founded by a community of Benedictine nuns. Everything about the schools now is coed except for the living situations. The girls' residence halls are at St. Ben's, and the boys' are at St. John's. There is a bus called the Link that runs from campus to campus between classes and every half hour after classes. Many of my classes are at St. Ben's, and I have quite a few extra-curricular activities there, such as various instrumental ensembles and intramural volleyball, among other things. Student activities and events are held at both campuses, and we function exactly like any single-campus school. The campuses are both beautiful areas with well-kept lawns and gardens. The greatest part about this school is the people and community feeling on campus. The professors are great and have a lot to offer students in the areas of intellectual, moral, and emotional growth, and the staff (admissions, registrar, financial aid, etc.) are extremely accommodating and try to help your experience here be the best that it can. The students are also some of the best people you will ever meet, and I have met several lifelong friends in my year-and-a-third spent here so far.
