The College of St. Scholastica Reviews

I liked all of the different things I could get involved in such as Intervarsity, knit and crochet club, campus ministry, Circle K, and Loaves and Fishes through Vita. There were a lot of activities to do there and places to hang out with friends such as playing games and watching movies or going on nature walks. The location is very relaxing as it is a very scenic place being surrounded by lots of trees with a view of Lake Superior. The nursing program is very good as are the classes and professors. I loved some of the courses such as choir, orchestra, anatomy and physiology, microbiology, and others. The people who attend here and work here are generally very inclusive to others.

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.
The College of St Scholastica believes in Benedictine values that the faculty, staff, and students have to live by and it creates a great community that is not hard to adjust to. I love the way classes are conducted: the Professor to Student ratio is good. There are a lot of resources on campus like Writing Centre, Supplemental instructions, Campus Ministry, WellU and many more that actually makes CSS a good home away from home. The resources are not only helpful in terms of learning but also physically, socially and mentally. You can never go wrong at the College of St Scholastica.
