Support our Students Affected by COVID-19

When we closed the campus in the spring semester our alumni and friends provided emergency assistance to more than 1,100 undergraduate and graduate students adversely impacted by COVID 19, but the need continues to be great for their daily necessities. Students have continued to request help for food and educational expenses including books and supplies. Please support our students by making a gift to the Emergency Fund for St. John's Students.
