I absolutely love Saint Leo University! There are so many opportunities for students to learn and make friends. In my first week as a freshman, we had an orientation week and the staff and students were just incredible. The orientation leaders loved helping and making connections with the new students that they keep all throughout college. They did many activities like color wars and taking us to Busch Gardens. Saint Leo also is very good with keeping up with students throughout the year and making sure they stay on track. The staff is always very helpful and kind. If I could change anything it would be that the school would have a football team. I miss the Friday Night Lights every week.

I'm a current student of Saint Leo University! I love it! The small campus is perfect for me. It aids in the development of community on campus. There is a also so many things to get involved with. There is a wide range of extracurriculars and the Campus Activities Board rocks! They inspire every other organization on campus to contribute to campus life and so it is always a fun time here! The education is also great. In turns of academics, we truly are a hidden oasis. The local area life is not that great, other than that, Saint Leo University is an amazing place to grow.
I have just finished my first semester as a college freshman at Saint Leo University. It was a great experience! The teachers are very open to help and make class fun or easier to learn the subjects. I love how everyone on campus whether it be the students, faculty or visitors are extremely friendly and polite. The only thing I could complain about is not having anything really close to campus. The city of Saint Leo is just the college so anything you want to do or visit is a good amount of distance away. Not a walking trip. The SLU CAB tries to bring things to do at school so we have some entertainment here and there besides sporting events. Without them I'm sure the beauty and people at the school could hold the standard as a place I would want to be at.
