Dear members of the St. John’s community:
As you may have heard, St. John's University and the other six,
non-football institutions within the BIG EAST voted unanimously on
Saturday to exit the conference as it is currently constituted. St.
John's and its fellow institutions will now pursue a foundation of
basketball-focused schools, based on the rich tradition upon which
the BIG EAST was originally established.
This is an exciting time for the University as we look ahead to a
promising new foundation — one that will combine elite competition
with a continued emphasis on student-athlete development.
