What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
St. Joe's is a school where you can never say there is nothing to do. With challenging school work and ways to get involved you can always keep yourself busy. There is a place for everyone here.
Rosie
Saint Joseph's University is a great school to graduate from and a place where the campus is close enough to the inner city but far enough not to be apart of the chaos the inner city comes with. A very comfortable atmosphere and campus.
