To the alumni-sponsored website of graduates of the Brooklyn Center of

St. Johnís University of New York.


The foundation upon which the present St. Johnís University stands is one that was solidly built by the Brooklyn schools of the University: 

  • St. John's College [1870-1955] [Lewis Avenue]
  • College of Arts and Sciences, Borough Hall Division (1929-42)
  • University College (1942-71) Name changed from Borough Hall in 1942
  • School of Accounting, Commerce and Finance (1927-33)
  • School of Commerce (1934-60) (Former School of Accounting)
  • College of Business (1960-71) (Former School of Commerce)
  • College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professionals (1929-1958

  • School of Law (1925-72) [Court Street 1925-29]
  • School of Education (1958-71)
  • School of Nursing Education (1942-58)
  • Junior College (1962-68) [now College of Professional Studies]
  • School of General Studies (1968-71) [now College of Professional Studies] 

The Brooklyn "campuses" of the University were closed over the course  of the 1950s and 1960s, as the Queens campus steadily grew into a magnificent centerpiece .  Over the ensuing years, branches of the University were opened in Staten Island, Oakdale-Suffolk County, and Rome, Italy.

We, Alumni of the Brooklyn Center, have independently established this website to celebrate and renew memories, share stories and  declare the bond we share with each other and with the many thousands of Brooklyn Center graduates, who have passed on, and with all of the students, alumni, faculty and administration of the great institution which is St. Johnís University.

Three  Cheers For St. Johnís University Ė
Past, Present and Future!!!
