Saint Vincent College - Pennsylvania Reviews

All Categories
Saint Vincent College is described as a close-knit and rural college founded on Benedictine Tradition. Not as corny as it sounds. You know people in major/outside. News flow isn't always the best. If you bond with teachers and professors easily, you will always have the upper hand. Professors care and work with you. Many repeatedly encourage students to visit offices. Very open. Running trail by cornfields, wetlands to explore, two lakes, a cemetery, woods, and school is only 2-10 minutes from Walmart/The Mall/etc (Many job opps aside from work study). Mass held in the basilica on Sunday. Professors are also VERY FRIENDLY monks that live on campus. Don't feel pressured if not religious, no requirements.

Miscellaneous:
Athletics huge here. Will pass several official/intramural teams daily.
Tuition reduced a lot. Listed price is falsely high.
Safe. Quiet/calm weekends.
Housing OKAY. Really depends.
Good food. Can be repetitive though. Many vegetarian options.
Review Saint Vincent College - Pennsylvania
Had a great Football visit this past weekend. The Football program combined with the academic program in Criminology make this school a good choice for student athletes. The Freshman Dorms are set up in pods to create a community. They also have tutors that come to the Freshman hall weekly to assist with the college transition academically. Also, the FOOD, was delicious and there was plenty of it. The campus was beautiful and students were friendly as well as the staff. Place really inspired me to want to compete at the next level academically and athletically.
I'm only a freshman this year, but I think I'm going to enjoy my four years here. Classes are very difficult compared to high school, but the personalized attention you're able to receive from your professors makes it almost impossible to fail. The only downside so far is that the food is not great. It's super hard to eat healthy here unless you get the salad bar every single day which gets really old really quick. Also, some people are "cliquey" and act like they're still in high school, but that's typical of a small campus. Overall, the campus is extremely safe and beautiful, especially in the fall. The Benedict Hall freshmen dorm is clean and creates a great environment to make friends. The party scene isn't extremely pervasive or overwhelming, like you'll never feel pressured to party unless you want to, and in that case there are options every weekend. Academics is definitely a priority here but if you work hard during the week, you can play hard on the weekends.
