St. Catherine University Reviews
I love the community at Saint Catherine University! With it being a smaller school, the teachers are able to get to know their students more. All of the faculty are ready to be available to help their students learn the curriculum to the best of their ability! The buildings at Saint Kate's are also wonderful. I personally love the library, where it is a nice, quiet place to get work done or get a study room with some friends to work together (Covid permitting). There are many commuter students at Saint Kate's, and they do their best to make everyone feel included in the community. Saint Kate's also has a great reputation when going into the working world, and they set you up with many connections before sending you off. Lastly, Saint Kate's not only teaches about diversity, but you can see it in the community around you. I have learned so much about diversity from the Saint Kate's curriculum, and I am forever grateful.
Yes, most of the time we used Collaborate. Sometimes we used Google Meet. A couple times we used Zoom. My least favorite was Zoom because the faculty member could control my Mic and if I didn't open my Mic fast enough they would click it for me thus disabling my ability to turn my Mic on so I could not contribute to the class. Also, in Collaborate we would break into small groups for discussions. Last, we presented power points and verbal reports. I think they did a great job!
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!
