University Freshman Center

The University Freshman Center was created to fulfill the commitment made by St. John’s University to mentor and guide first-year students through their transition from high school to college. Our mission is to welcome each and every student into the St. John’s University community and assist with students’ overall transition, acclimation and integration into the University setting. Using a student-centered approach grounded in the Developmental Advising Model, the Center initiates and maintains an on-going relationship with first-year students that focuses on academic success, student development and individual satisfaction.

The University Freshman Center coordinates and participates in a number of events and workshops geared toward student success in the first year of higher education.  These events are planned in conjunction with other University Departments and faculty members to ensure a well-rounded experience.
