I plan on visiting St. Joseph’s University with my son. He plans on being a Math major(possibly secondary education) or majoring in actuarial science.
I have seen threads on CC that St. Joe’s had a reputation for drugs and alcohol. Hopefully, that has changed. He is not a big party person so that would not be his scene. Does the campus clear out on weekends? Does the student association/clubs organize weekend events such as hiking or ski trips? How is the neighborhood around SJU? I have read threads where it is fine and others where the city side of the campus is in a high crime area… The campus looks nice. We recently visited University of Scranton which was nice but Scranton was “dead” on a Saturday night with most of the stores and restaurants being closed. We like the buildings and dorms at Scranton but it was a small campus with not a lot of green space. If anyone has been to Scranton , are SJU’s facilities as nice? Any insight would be appreciated?
