Calumet College of St. Joseph Reviews
St. Joseph's is a unique, quaint university. It sits in a small and community oriented neighborhood of Whiting, IN. It is in a very diverse area, which therefore brings a great deal of diversity to the school. Most of the students are local or international. The majority of the students come to play sports. There is not much of a campus atmosphere and currently no on-campus housing. the only good thing about this is the property value in Whiting is very affordable. Overall, this is an average university and may suit a student looking to commute from the area or play a college sport.
My experience at this school was great. It's a small school with so much to offer. From helpful, pleasant staff, to energetic, motivated students, the school is an all round great college!
They have a good education program , however it is very costly. I a single mother and they were garnishing my check for the tution my grant did not cover.
Calumet College of St. Joseph has been a great school. Many of the staff members have a lot knowledge to share and different methods to do so. The class size is small, which allows a better learning experience, and there a lot of opportunities around campus. I won't say is a perfect school, but unlike many others school, here you have the chance to leave your print.
Everybody knows everybody. Therefore, it's hard to do something you're not suppose to do and get away with it. We're all friends at this school.
Calumet College of Saint Joseph's does not have any type of campus housing. You are forced to get an apartment or house off campus, which is terrible for freshmen and international students.
I am a catcher on the baseball team and the school can't even fund catcher's gear for us; we have to buy our own. The weight room in our athletic building is absolutely terrible and unsafe to work out in. Half of the equipment in the weight room doesn't work. The school doesn't have enough money to fully fund all the sports with all the equipment they need.
Cal college is a very small school. You basically know everyone there which is a good and bad thing. A lot of group activities are implemented in the classrooms because of how small the class sizes are. Your professors know you and will remember you the four years you attend. Class sizes are very small and all classes are only an hour and a half. You only go to school Monday through Thursday as well.
I've never met any alumni... Really wouldn't know they exist...
There are no dorms... No meal plans... No campus life... Completely boring...
There is no Greek life. NONE. I've checked.........
No one cares about the sports teams. The sports teams don't even care about the sports teams.
This school is small. It is easy to give good ratings to nice people. I am not caught up in the "special treatment" of the educator within the institution. There needs to be more work. It's easy to get a degree. Challenge yourself to want more. You'll pay for it. DO NOT ATTEND!!!!!!!
Our school doesn't even have dorms. Their supposedly working on building them. Athletes are the only ones with apartments within the neighborhood. Though they have to walk a few miles to get to school.
I remember our school hosting an event about Greek life but nobody cared.
I love that my school is community based. It's a small campus so you get to know everyone. The security guard is even cool with all the students. I even had a conversation with him one day about me arriving late to class. He told me to be on time because missing a class is missing a mission impossible. Everyone is also friendly. Even if you're struggling in a class, there's the tutoring center and other professors that are willing to help.
There is one gymnasium and it is a fight to get time to use it. The school does not have their own fields and use the city's near by. The weight room is small with little room for team workouts.
