Saint Peter's University Reviews
I am a sophomore studying Chemistry- Forensic Science. The Forensic Science unit is fairly new so there can be improvements on hands on laboratory and more classes dealing with Forensics itself. Other than my major, core requirement classes have mixed feelings. I do appreciate taking basic classes such as English, Math, and History, but I do not find it important to take electives like Art, Language, and Theology. The professors are very helpful and students can always rely on (some) of them. The Campus is small which is better for intimate communication and networking with professors and guess speakers. Overall, I will represent myself with great attitude from future graduating for Saint Peter's University.
My experience at Saint Peter’s University has gained me exposure to a variety of informative business lectures and workshops which serve as an enlightenment and early insight to the corporate world standards and recruitment processes. During my time at Saint Peter’s I’ve acquired skill sets that will serve me in my career path and have learned valuable insight from my marketing, management, economics, programming and accounting courses. The information I have acquired from my courses has allowed me to view the world differently. Having the ability to be dynamic, efficient, effective and resilient has allowed me to be a well rounded individual not only in my field of study but other fields of study as well. The student body is diverse and has allowed me to better understand cultures differing from my own.
My experience at Saint Peter's University is amazing. This School is very diverse different people, different cultures, different languages. Saint Peter's makes me feel very comfortable, even though it's a small school I feel like I'm at home. The professor is amazing with office hours and getting you to achieve the years you have in Saint Peter's. Dean, administers, campus safety, students all are amazing and definitely make sure our 4 years in Saint Peter's is very comfortable and home oriented. There's always someone to talk to wheater your down, want to share good news etc list goes on and on. I recommend this school to all my friends and their friends. I picked the best school to jump-start my career. Thank you Saint Peter's.
