The Community

    "I chose St. Joseph’s because I was interested in attending a school with more diversity. SJC has an environment where all students have a space to express themselves — I’ve met international students, and students from varied religious and racial minority groups."
  • Chris Malcaus '18

    "St. Joseph’s provides all the tools necessary for a student to prosper in both his collegiate career and future career. If my internship at Bellevue Hospital or my political internship didn’t happen, certain skills and my varied interests wouldn’t have been honed. The opportunities to network and intern culminate for an exceptional education."

    "SJC offers a sense of community that is important in helping students transition to college, many of which are moving away from their family and friends."
