I've looked at other Universities for education programs, and St Kate's has a straightforward website. That was a relief. They center their courses around social justice. Diverse student bodies deserve understanding. St Kate's has given me effective skills for my current position as a substitute teacher in the Minneapolis Public School District. I see how economic hardship affects a child's education. My classroom management has become more effective!
Review St. Catherine University
I am an adult non-traditional student and I love the St. Kate's has been very open to the different types of students. They are one of the only colleges that I have found who offer a nursing program in evenings and weekends. I wish that more colleges were more willing to offer greater opportunities to non-traditional students who are trying to further their education. They also have a wonderful parenting connection program and offer study help to parents and easy pick up and go snacks and food. They have programming opportunities that you can bring your children to and they also have family housing! I am so impressed!
So far, my experience at St. Kate's has been great! The professors genuinely care about the success of their students and the university is very proud of its history. I would have given it a five but not a lot happens on weekends at school. I'm not a partier but it definitely feels like a suitcase college. Also, I love the all-women aspect since it is all about women empowering one another. However, I do miss seeing the male gender. I wish there were more men who took classes at St. Kate's.
