Absolutely best experience! Online classes are on par and resources are vast. The best part is I feel my classmates are diverse and open to discussing anything in a respectful, informative manner during each class. The professors are engaging and offer feedback when you need it. The 8 week term may sound intimidating but you have the chance to be completely submerged in the subject! There's also excellent career services for all.

It's vital to your mental health to continue learning through out life. Saint Leo encourages people of all ages to apply. I find that I learn a lot from my older classmates and find it endearing classmates encourage the atypical student. It's never too late to get your degree or to return for another degree. You will find the resources to become a student again.

Truthfully, I wish I had signed up sooner and realized that a leading four year institution has a lot to offer the atypical student. I wish everyone would realize their life goals are within reach!

Saint Leo University is such a good school for people who don't want big lecture halls and more interaction with students. They have a 15:1 Ratio for students to teachers. Amazing teachers who actually want to help you learn, great activities/clubs to help get you involved with other students and the school itself. Amazing view of the lake and sky. The only real downfall is that the WiFi is not that great but it can be over looked. Overall such a good school and its Roman Catholic!
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!
