I transferred to St. Catherine University from a community college. I was feeling very stagnant at the first school I attended- like I didn't care to be there and they didn't care to help me succeed. After my very first meeting with a counselor at St. Kate's, I felt so much better. I was hesitant to even consider St. Kate's, due to the cost, but my counselor made me feel so welcome and provided me with so many helpful resources- the total opposite of my previous school. I absolutely love St. Kate's. Transferring there is one of the best decisions I've ever made. I love that they empower women, I was provided with a degree evaluation/ plan within a few hours of walking into the school, I feel very safe there, I've met many friends, and now I'm much more excited to go to school every day!

The staff is Great! They are also very attentive to my needs as an online student.
The instructors respond quickly to all of my questions or concerns. They have multiple avenues available for communicating. You can chat, email, or call and actually get a person to assist you. The support staff continues to follow up with me and assist me as I continue in the occupational therapist assistant program. They help to ensure I'm registered for the correct classes and ordering the necessary books and supplies that I need for each course. All the books I have ordered for these classes have been delivered in a timely manner. I have always been able to obtain any assistance that I need whether it is in regards to the classes, assignments, registration, and future requirements and plans that I need to be prepared for.
I love the diversity of St. Catherine’s. I’ve met so many different people in my first year attending college. The community is very close and welcoming! I would however like to see more activities happen on weekends. When winter comes and it gets especially cold, people start to go home on weekends. I happen to be from out of state, so I can’t go home. I think having more activities to do would motivate more people to stay on campus over the weekends.
