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.
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!
