    The professors at this college are fantastic! They honestly care about your education, but above that they care about your well being and how you are going to leave the school. They want their alumni to leave campus a better person and create an impact on the world wherever they go.

    My experience at The College of St. Scholastica has been amazing so far! The professors are well educated and accessible, the class sizes are small enough that you have a voice within the classroom, and the campus is beautiful.
    Honestly, academic-wise, I love this school. The professors are caring and understanding. They actually want you to succeed and want to watch you succeed. They make class very interesting for the most part too. As for the students, extremely cliquey. If you came to college to only make acquaintances, then this is the right college. A lot of the students here either came from the same area or already came with friends, and they aren't very willing to make new ones. So if you come from anywhere farther than Cloquet, MN, then you might want to keep your options open.
