What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
Saint Joseph's has been the ultimate college experience. The classes are great with small sizes and passionate professors, there is hundreds of clubs and activities to do once class is over, and the people you will meet are amazing. The pride in being a SJU Hawk is what set this school apart from all others.

Saint Joseph's is a very fun college, but also very good academically. There is always something to do on and off campus. The staff is also helpful when you need them!
