St. John’s University – Staten Island is a private, Roman Catholic, coeducational university located in Staten Island, New York
On January 27, 1971, the New York State Board of Regents approved the consolidation of the university with the former Notre Dame College (New York) a private women’s college and St. John’s University – Staten Island became a reality. Classes began in the fall of 1971, combining the original Notre Dame College with the former Brooklyn campus of St. John’s, offering undergraduate degrees in liberal arts, business and education. Today the Staten Island Campus has expanded to include 16.5 acres (67,000 m2) serving over 2,000 students who are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The 16.5-acre (67,000 m2) campus features lawns, apartment-style student residences, and architectural styles that range from red-brick colonial to the modern. The campus is located in the residential Grymes Hill section of Staten Island. The Storm Front is the official student-run newspaper of St. John’s University Staten Island Campus. It was organized in 2005 and succeeded The Arrow as the campus newspaper after The Arrow was later seen as a throw-back to the University’s former Red Men theme. Proteus is the literary magazine of the Staten Island Campus. It is released as a compilation of student-submitted works through the St. John’s University Creative Expression’s Guild.
