St. Norbert College Reviews
I haven't started classes as of this review, but from the various times I've visited or participated at an event on campus, I can say that St. Norbert College is among the top colleges in the state of Wisconsin. The sense of community I felt amongst the students in my first visits was unavoidable, along with the beauty of the campus. The dorms aren't the greatest at first glance, although once students get to decorate their rooms, they look a lot nicer. All the buildings are within a quick walking distance from each other, and they are all kept well maintained, especially with the newly renovated science building and gym! One of my favorite parts about any campus, the cafeteria, is also a home run at SNC. The food is amazing, and I'm not ashamed to admit that it was one of the deciding factors for me when choosing colleges.
The attitude and feel of community at Saint Norbert College is unlike any other. All faculty and staff live and breathe communio and truly go above and beyond for the students from the professors, the cafeteria workers, to the garbage men! Unfortunately this college is lacking when it comes to costs. SNC is incomparably over-priced. Not only that, as tuition continues to increase for students, their scholarship awards do not reflect the increase leaving students, especially those who pay their own way, suffering heavily.
Simply put, the best four years of my life! SNC is a welcoming community, they guarantee four years, and the food and facilities are so much better than the more than dozen schools I visited. De Pere is a great town to walk around, everything you need is less than 3 blocks from campus. Athletics win all the time, especially the 5-time national championship hockey team. SNC really pushes getting off campus and into the community for internships and as far as the flourishing study abroad experience. While one of the few colleges left than requires students to live on campus all four years, there are so many unique options for housing including houses and apartments with vaulted ceilings, fireplaces and underground parking.
