Traditionally May first, used to be known as decision day for colleges and universities, but the coronavirus has pushed that date back for many.
One university here in New York, is making plans for its students and faculty, and embracing those who just aren't sure if they should commit to a school for the fall.
Brian Browne the spokesperson for St. John’s University explains rolling admissions. “We evaluate applications as they are received it reduces stress for applicants and family as well as provides flexibility. We evaluate applications as they come in our classes start in early September so you still have time if your life circumstances have changed or you are still in college search decision mode, you have the time to make the decision and think about St. John's University.”
St. John's University was founded 150 years ago to be a place for immigrants and their children to get a private, Catholic education and it has just continued to expand with more than 100 undergraduate degrees. “We have tremendous faculty, we have high tech resources, we have great intern opportunities most of all alum connections. We have over 190k living alum and 150k in the tri-state area. When it comes to financial aid, among private colleges St. John’s is one of the top when it comes to providing our own financial resources. 96% of student get some form of financial aid."
And when it comes to helping others, the university kicked into high gear to help in the battle against the Coronavirus. “Whether graduates who are healthcare providers, or our faculty coming together to donate over 200k PPE to a local hospital in Queens, it's just something we do. We have faculty doing research on the impact of Covid-19 and its impact on Queens county.
