  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    the campus is BEAUTIFUL. the dorms are average but they are building a brand spankin new building for the class of 2016. everyone there is very welcoming and friendly staff and students. at the open house there were lots of chances to talk to students and get real opinions from active students. they even had a room set up with professors from every department and they called it a community fair.

    The campus is very beautiful, it is peaceful and comforting and creates a atmosphere where it is easy to feel as if you are home. This school also haves a lot of volunteer opportunities that really get students involved with helping others throughout the city. There are programs available that anyone can feel comfortable doing. A St. Josephs student can always find a place where he or she can fit in and make an impact.

    St. Joe's offers a safe, fun campus. There are a variety of activities students can get involved with whether it's sports related or volunteer activities. If you're looking for something fun to do that doesn't cost a cent, you can always rely on the Student Union Board. SUB is the main student-run group on campus that manages anything from free movies to mini festivals on the lawn. You can also check out the Perch, a building used for students to relax, have fun, go to concerts, or study and talk with friends. The Perch is open 24/7 and includes pool tables, table tennis, arcade games, a computer lab, a stage (for concert nights) and a lounge area...and the best part is - it's all free! And after you relax in the lounge you can participate in multiple volunteer activities; some held right on campus and the majority of others, in the city! Volunteering is a great way meet new people and give back to the community.

    The school environment is just as great as the academic atmosphere. There are many activities going on each weekend. Different student groups organize dances, concerts, movie nights, etc. The sporting events are also a lot of fun. The school is very spirited. Basketball games are very intense and very exciting. The school location is also great! At Saint Joseph's you can use trains, buses, and other public transportation to get into the city, where there are lots of things to do and see. It is also great being close to many different colleges that you can visit and meet other people your age.

    The students at St. Joe's are courteous and kind, but are also your typical teenagers. Debates in class can get lively, as everyone has a different point of view.
