The St. John’s story is the story of New York, and our alumni and students who are woven into the fabric of our city, and our world.
From homelessness to Hamilton. Broadway star and St. John’s alumnus Carvens Lissaint reflects on how St. John's groomed him as a man, a husband, an artist, and a believer.
My time at St. John’s summarized in one word: unforgettable.
"There are experiences here that would not have been available to me if I attended another school, such as the time when I sat on the Great Lawn and watched 10 minutes of fireworks at the Winter Carnival. That is where this photo was taken. I was stressed over finals and a personal situation, but that evening my mood brightened—I am sure you can see that clearly by my smile. Sometimes you get so caught up in your routine that you forget to just take a moment to enjoy life. Choosing to attend St. John’s University is easily one of my best decisions.”
St. John’s truly shows me the world!
"Moving to New York City was a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. Being a St. John’s University student has allowed me to experience all that the city has to offer and has opened the door to countless opportunities in my career field. I have met people from places all around the globe.”
