Favorite Thing About St. John’s
Our diversity is not only cultural and geographical; our diversity includes religion as well as economical and social diversity.  I enjoy being in an environment where learning comes from beyond the classrooms, transcends NYC and takes on an adventure through social interactions and peer experiences.

Advice You Give SJU Applicant
Make sure to get involved, join a club, become a student leader. Try Living on campus your freshman year, it is the best way to learn the St. John’s way and to become involved in the culture that will make your college experience memorable. Take this year to discover the neighboring areas and the transportation systems before you consider moving off campus.

What do you like about living in the NY metro area?
As a former international student here in NY: this is The City That Never Sleeps!  there is something to do all the time.  New York City is also known as The Capital of The World, because you can find people, cultures, religions and food from all over the planet. It is very difficult to be homesick or to miss your traditional food when you live in the New York metro area.
