Anyone familiar with the history of St. John’s University knows
that it was established in 1870 in a small farmhouse in Brooklyn.
As the University grew in size and stature, that early location
evolved into the Lewis Avenue campus, located at the intersection
of Lewis and Willoughby Avenues.
Although that historic campus no longer exists as part of the
University, for the past 53 years our Lewis Avenue alumni have
maintained their connection to each other by gathering for an
annual Lewis Avenue Alumni Reunion. They also remain
committed to supporting St. John’s by reaching out to the young men
and women who are today following in their footsteps, primarily
through their support of the Fr. Cyril Meyer Lewis Avenue Alumni
The scholarship has made a decided impact on the lives of many
students who would otherwise been unable to pursue their dream of a
St. John’s education.
