Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program

A number of attributes influenced my decision to attend St. John's, including its academic prestige, proximity to the city, and variety of programs. Yet when looking back, I realize that at the onset of my academic career, I never even considered what I now feel is St. John's most valuable offering-community. In addition to the academic success I have found at St. John's, as a result of supportive and dedicated professors, I have also found that I am a part of a community. The support that I find in professors, staff, and even peers at St. John's is the reason that I am glad I made the decision to attend.
