    This is a private Catholic college so it is a little expensive but they do give you scholarships and other forms of aid if necessary.

    I do not think this school is worth how much they are charging. I don't know if I was one of the unlucky ones but financial was so unhelpful to me and my situation. I was basically told for next year that I would get no money in financial aid again but yet they continue to raise the price of tuition among other things

    It's a very expensive school, but St. John's works hard to make sure everything is at it's best for their students. The halls are wonderful, and we get access to many different things, such as an on-campus gym, free personal laptops, an open rec gymnasium, and so much more.
