Overall, the school is a great place to be and the knowledge you gain here is amazing! The Professors are great, they push their students to strive academically. One thing I would say is negative about the school, is the parking. Parking on campus is horrible! You have to pay $150 per semester to park on campus, and when you do find a spot, you have to walk a half mile to class. I just got a hundred dollar ticket a week ago for parking in the wrong spot. I wish they would try to improve the parking situation.

My experience as a freshman at the College of Saint Scholastica has been outstanding. I would highly recommend this school to students who are looking for a lot of small class sizes, a great community of students, and wonderful staff who are there to help you with literally anything you need. The RA's in the Freshman dorms are very nice and end up to be your close friends, your professors will always recognize you and say hi to you in the hallway, and our dean of students is fantastic. She emphasizes our five main ideals very strongly which are: Stewardship, Community, Hospitality, Respect, and Love of Learning. These are shown everywhere around campus and it makes you feel very at home. I would say that the only downfall that I see about living on campus is that the food in the dining hall is not all that great, but otherwise our other food places on campus are not bad. The atmosphere at Scholastica is one everyone should experience.
St. Scholastica is a wonderful, welcoming community of people, but it tends to feel like a high school because of its small size. I really wish they had the funds to expand the campus, such as having our own football field and improving the quality of buildings, which are quite old. Despite the number of clubs on campus, many sport-related activities can't be hosted due to lack of space on campus. I could go on, and although it's nice in some ways, there are more areas that need to be improved, for safety and a better, full college experience.
