The University of St Thomas is an incredible school I highly recommend it. It is an academically rigorous university and attendance is required in most classes. If you choose this school, be prepared to stay engaged in class, participate as much as possible, and study daily. Aside from education, the facilities on campus are top-notch, I recommend checking out the fitness center it's huge and so beautiful. There is a ton to do off-campus, lots of shops, restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. If you're looking for more nightlife it's only a quick drive from the Florida A&M University! I can recommend this school highly enough.

I like the fact that St. Thomas University is just starting out with a football team and band and I am going to be a part of it! I am impressed with the diversity of the student body and the care the faculty and staff are taking to ensure all students feel a part of the university and college life.
I am particularly impressed by the care the university is providing the campus itself and the new parts of the campus being built. I can see there has been careful planning in the vision of the school and it's goals.
As my parents and I have gone to visit and complete the orientation process, I can see they genuinely care about their students and want them to be leaders in the community and excel in whatever they can in the future. Kudos to STU!
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.
