The campus is a bit small, but its easier to get to classes. The teachers are great! They explain very well and teach at a moderate pace to ensure that everyone fully understands. You can also ask extra questions after class, if you wish. The classes are also small, so you have more one-on- one learning experience. It feels similar to high school, only the workload is more and the teachers are more interesting. College life is amazing, well considering this is my first time off on my own. If you want to succeed and have an awesome learning experience, St. Thomas is for you.

St. Thomas is an expensive private school but they work with older students who decide to make career changes. The school is most known for their Law School and Nursing Program. I am a law student. The school offered me scholarships when I initially enrolled and depending on what grades you make after your first year, they reassess your scholarship amounts.

I think that St. Thomas was the best choice for me because it is a small community that looks out for each other. The deans have an open door policy and truly care about your success.

The only cons to the law school are:
Private school tuition
Limited parking
Limited food options
Limited professors (if you get one you don't like, good luck. You may have them again)
You can't control your exam schedule
Great school with a family environment! St. Thomas does a great job with getting their students, not only a great education, but their foot in the door with where ever they want to begin their career. There are many professors with great connections to the outside world.
