commitment made by St. John’s University to mentor and guide
first-year students through their transition from high school to
college. Our mission is to welcome each and every student into the
St. John’s University community and assist with students’ overall
transition, acclimation and integration into the University
setting. Using a student-centered approach grounded in the
Developmental Advising Model, the Center initiates and maintains an
on-going relationship with first-year students that focuses on
academic success, student development and individual
The University Freshman Center coordinates and participates in a
number of events and workshops geared toward student success in the
first year of higher education. These events are planned in
conjunction with other University Departments and faculty members
to ensure a well-rounded experience.
