Saint Peter's University Reviews
Saint Peter's is a small campus so it is likely you come across the same people daily. It is in an urban area with a diverse community so I enjoy the atmosphere when I attend classes throughout the day. From experience, I can say the professors and staff are readily available for students during a time of need, whether it is academic or personal. College is what you make it and I am fortunate enough to surround myself with friends who make it such an amazing experience. Being a nursing major, I have a pile of workload so I spend a lot of my time at the library, which is an exceptional place to study in without any distraction. SPU clubs also try to get the students into the school spirit and I can say that there are some fun events that can be attended throughout the school year. Regardless, it is predominately commuter school so many of the students return home after classes end, but it is still possible to make friends on campus!
The environment is extremely diverse and friendly! Small campus so it is easy to make good friends and connections and see the same faces often. The parking issues is a change that will be sweet for commuters like me ( My commute takes about 2 hours). Faculty members are wonderful, compassionate and helps you to succeed!
After my first year at Saint Peter's, I was assured I chose the best college for me. This school has many programs to choose from and is affiliated with many larger universities as well, making it easier to apply for graduate programs elsewhere. This school is great athletics wise. Our men's basketball team, baseball team, and girl's volleyball team are most known for. If there's one thing I could change, it would be a bigger campus.
