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.
Review Your College
I've enjoyed most of my classes so far; some electives I feel are useless and a waste of my money though. I understand the schools intent of making us well rounded individuals with the university exploration classes, but honestly, most kids just BS their way through them and retain little knowledge on the subject.

Professors are caring, nice, knowledgeable, and fair. Great all around!

Class sizes are small, which I find attractive and more personable.

Classes in the newer buildings have access to more technology and those in the older buildings are sort of left to fend for themselves with little to no technology.
I loved this past semester at Saint Leo University. The faculty is extremely helpful, full of energy, and very friendly! The professors are great and they are very understanding in regards to your busy schedule. Prices are reasonable per class and overall my experience at Saint Leo University was inviting and care free!
