Merissa - 04/27/2017

overall, the college is pretty good until they decided to close. They have screwed us (students and faculty) at the point of announcement. Small class sizes and easy to get along with professors brings a good vibe to campus. The majority of students are athletes, so the professors are easy to work with and get a hold of.

caylin - 01/06/2017

Saint Josephs College is a beautiful campus with amazing students and professors. The class sizes are not very large which is great if you need extra help or are better off in a smaller setting. The advisors and employees are always there for an extra hand if needed. The students make the campus an excellent environment and are so kind to one another. Saint Josephs College may not be for everyone but it is absolutely for me.
