Saint Leo University Reviews
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 have loved this school! I just completed my first year very successfully. The professors are very engaged with the students, the campus is beautiful, peaceful, and quiet, and the student body is friendly. The cafe is good. The community surrounding St. Leo is incredibly supportive, attending the athletic events and always available to the students. We are not far from the beach, either, which is icing on the cake!
Online student finishing bachelors degree. I've had great instructors, some more challenging than others but I welcome that. It has been a dream to finish my degree for a long time and Saint Leo is helping me achieve this. The school really makes an effort to provide services and resources to online and center students!
