    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.
    The College of Saint Scholastica was a fantastic college for my first year as a student. Although it’s expensive and changes are needed, the students and faculty are pretty amazing. Everyone is very kind and not to judge. The professors are always available and always willing to help and explain. The food is not ideal, but it’s pretty good for the resources they have. The campus scene is beautiful and incredibly inclusive. The people are always willing to help and be kind. I’ve never been somewhere where people are so nice to you, even if they don’t know you. The faculty has countless ways to make sure each student succeeds.
