      Don't bother with living on campus at this school.

      Their dorms and campus safety is absolute complete joke!

      I invested in this school to get my degree and mostly As and B's.

      Then I decided to move on campus to reduce my commute time and expenses.

      I didn't get what I asked for in my roomming application and was expelled for false allegations.

      That's time and money I will have to pay on top of what I invested in them.

      Don't be like me, either seek education here off campus or invest your time elsewhere with more of competent campus living administration.

      I like that Saint Peter's offers a variety of classes that consists of small class sizes. This way its easy to make better connections with your professors. As someone who dorms, I would really like to see the dorm buildings be renovated or the room and board charges go down. The living spaces and its prices don't match. I feel like this school charges way too much to offer dorms that may have mold, mice, or roaches. Also, as someone majoring in the STEM field, I would like to see more on-campus research opportunities for its students.
      There's a few things I like about Saint Peters University, such as; the friendships I've made, the falcuty that supported me, the fact that it's close to home, and the student diversity. Meeting new people at this school has made this experience more enjoyable, helped me adjust to a new living enviornment, and creating life long friendships along the way. My school has the best support system, and I am just greatful to have them by my side, especially around finals week. Transportation from my school to home is very convinet, the school has a shuttle that drives their students to the bus terminal. Around campus their are students of different ethnicity and culture, Some people even come from other countries. I wish that the Saint Peter's bridge, that goes over JFK Blvd, would extend to a building called Rankin Hall, that way it would be much easier for people with handicap to get to class.
