What I found unique about St. John's was the fact that they are extremely involved with helping others. They require you to have at least participated in 5 hours of community service, and they are always promoting to go out and participate in Midnight Runs and etc. And for me, community service has always been a big part of my life, so St. John's definitely stood out when making my college choice.


The fact that it is really involved with basketball and that the students are really proud to be st johns student. There is a lot of spirit and also that there is a lot of diversity on campus. You will see about every race on campus.


One thing that stands out is that even as a freshmen, you have the opportunity to study abroad. This is a great privilege and experience.




St. John's has a small-school atmosphere in a medium-large school. The classes are generally small, there are only a modest amount of people living on campus, but you can still meet new people every day. But best of all is that most people you meet are kind, happy, and individual. It is almost impossible to not find someone to talk to on campus.


Compared to other schools St. John's University is a Catholic and Vincentian Universsity which upholds their mission to academic freedom, a spirit of inquiry and respect for each individuals worth and dignity, and global service.

Here I am challenged to see beyond myself and personal goals, and understand success as making a difference in the community. I am able to incorporate service to the community with my higher education pursuit. This makes St. John's superior when compared to others.
