Tough, but good! A lot of money when you have biology teachers who lack in grading or even knowing the information. Will get a good job out of here because if you can survive this, you can survive anything

Being from Florida, this was a very drastic change of atmosphere for me. I had to accustom to new cultures and norms but it helped me find myself and grow as a student but most important as an individual. I do not regret attending this school because there were a lot of lessons to learn and a lot of people to be grateful for. If you choose to go here or anywhere , know it will not be easy as life is not but the great individuals in the area can help create an experience that will have a lasting impact on you into further adulthood.
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.
