St. John's University is a Catholic, Vincentian, Metropolitan and Global University on a mission to ensure student success. To learn more about our University, visit us at stjohns.edu and be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @StJohnsU for even more content.
The legacy of a Johnny is Vincentian, metropolitan, global, and aware. As part of St. John’s mission, service is engrained into much of your college experience, and brought to life in ways that will allow you to explore New York City and travel the world. In addition to three New York City campuses—Queens, Staten Island, and Manhattan—St. John’s has a campus in Rome, Italy, as well as study locations in Paris, France, and Limerick, Ireland. Graduates are not only employable, but, when they leave campus, they take with them all of the hope, compassion, awareness, and courage that can only come from knowing what it means to be a global citizen.
Julia Schwan ‘17CPS earned her M.B.A. from The Peter J. Tobin College of Business in May 2019. Tune in as she takes us behind the scenes of her adventures in Italy. From her studies at our Rome campus to her trek through ancient coliseums and her travels to the Amalfi Coast; Julia plunges you, her fellow Johnny, into the European culture. And she still finds time to participate in “Retake Roma”, a service opportunity for students to beautify the streets of Rome. Originally from Brazil, Julia was recruited by St. John’s for Track and Field where she was selected as a member of the BIG EAST All-Academic Team and earned ALL-BIG EAST Indoor Team Honors.
Our world-class scholar-teachers are one reason students from around the globe select St. John’s to acquire the knowledge and skills to excel in their careers. Much of our faculty have received top academic honors, which include Fulbright Guggenheim awards and inclusion among The Princeton Review’s “Best 300 Professors” in America. With their guidance, students gain important connections, earn prestigious awards and fellowships, and hone their skills. Together, professors and students create a supportive, close-knit scholarly community energized by lectures, campus organizations, and academic societies at St. John’s.
