The experience at Saint Leo is something that is indescribable. The professors, the staff, the students, and the all-around atmosphere is incredible. It is a close-knit community that thrives on family values, finding your purpose, and evolving into the best version of yourself. In the past 2 years i've been at Saint Leo, I have been my happiest and am proud to say that I made the right choice with choosing Saint Leo University as my home away from home until 2022!

My experience with Saint Leo originates out of a stressful transition from ITT Technical Institute. I graduated from this particular school in 2012 with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with a 3.6 gpa, only to find out that the degree was no regionally accredited. With finding this out I was met with many obstacles in my career due to me wanting to teach, I couldn't utilize it anywhere neither would any career switcher allow me to transfer my degree.

My wife made initial contact with the school and from the beginning they assured me they were regionally accredited, not only that they requested me to send official transcripts from ITT Tech but they made sure to let me know nothing would be guaranteed. Fortunately, upon review from the registrar, they were able to transfer 82 of my credits and now I only have one calendar year of school to receive a fully accredited Bachelors Degree.

Thus far, the staff has been outstanding to me.
Saint Leo University is an amazing University. A small campus, however you meet many great people from all over the country and different parts of the world. Saint Leo University lies on six pillars. Excellence, Respect, Community, Personal Development, Responsible Stewardship, and Integrity. All six pillars sound silly when you take your first step at being a lion on campus, but through time and experience, you truly understand and use these six pillars in your education, on campus, and in your day to day life. At Saint Leo University, there is something said here "You will love the person you become here." I think at first, through all the school work, activates and living life for four years, you would not understand. Yet, once you hit that stage, and you move your tassel and you have flashbacks of fun times, good times, bad times, and so much more. You truly do recognize, "You do Love the Person You Became Here" at Saint Leo University.
