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!
Saint Leo University has elaborate landscaping, small class sizes, and a diverse student body. Overall, my experience with this university has been fantastic. I genuinely love how close it is to home and all of the opportunities offered here!
