Not so bright
Lots of drugs on campus and turns a blind eye and slap on the wrist which enables behavior

Saint Joseph's University is a joke of aSuper BrilliantEnglish
Saint Joseph's University is a joke of a school that only cares about money. The facility is mostly extremely uncaring towards the students and they only want you to pay your tuition and follow orders. Some of them, like those in financial aid or career development, can be helpful, but the higher ups are clearly just there for a paycheck. Many of the professors are snobs who think having tenure means not having to try to teach or care about their students. The school's "community standards" are a joke, lead by pro-feminist, far-left political correctness and "obeying orders" at all times; it is very restrictive and personally anti-constitutional; you always feel like you have to follow orders and be just another drone like many of the other students. Creative thought and dissenting opinions are VERY much disagreed upon by the school. They don't care about you as a student at all and very few of them want to see you succeed. The students are mostly upper middle-class snobs who still hold onto their "clique" elite-circle mentality from high school. Though usually polite towards the facility and each other, they are still pretty self-absorbed and elitist. The campus is pretty, but isolated from anything worthwhile and far off from Center City. The school only cares about money and NOTHING else.

This is a Philadelphia School.AverageLanguage - French/Spanish/etc.
This is a Philadelphia School. If your roots or destiny are in Philadelphia, going here will suit you quite well (the local professions are full of SJU alumni) It is not a national, or even a regional, university. Many students here are first generation College, there are a few alumni legacies, but, for the most part, SJU grads will send their offspring to other Jesuit and National Universities. To some, this reality smarts. Many students and alumni cherish the education, experience and opportunities offered by Hawk Hill. The school's reputation in Philly is untouchable and the degree will be respected locally and by many graduate and professional schools regionally. But that is about as far as it goes. If College for you is Pride and Hubris, then perhaps you should consider the offerings at at UPenn or VIllanova. On the other hand, the "tradeoff", SJU will reward those who take advantage of the unique opportunites that it offers
