College of Saint Benedict Reviews
I love the professors here! They are very dedicated to their students and are willing to give in their time to help students outside of class. There are also many great opportunities available for personal growth such as joining clubs, studying aboard, and fellowships. The career service here is amazing as well. They help critique your resume for you and help you find internships during the summer. As for academic advising, they help you set up a 4-year plan of what classes you will be taking each semester and will adjust if you plan to study abroad. One thing I would like to see improvements on is racial diversity within the staff/faculty and nonfaculty members. I think it is important that there is diversity within professors and nonfaculty members because some students may feel more comfortable with a professor or staff of color.
The College of Saint Benedict not only provides excellent academics but it allows you to grow as an individual through the clubs and organizations on campus. The small, liberal arts campus has helped me excel in my academics through one on one professor contact and the opportunities provided. Not to mention the people you will meet at CSB are some of the most passionate and down to earth individuals, and they want to help you with every aspect of your life!
I’m a freshman here and so far it’s okay. The professors, staff, and people are all incredibly nice. The classes are challenging, especially chemistry, but there are many resources. There’s a lot to be involved in on campus, but not that many places to party. The St. Joe Police Department is incredibly strict, they live to hand out minors in a college town... But if you don’t mind a more mellow party scene it’s fine. The location itself isn’t great, highly recommend having a car on campus and the two campuses/busing is a kind of a pain but manageable. Overall my time here has been fine, but if the people sucked I wouldn’t be here.
