The College of St. Scholastica Reviews
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.
One of the most depressing schools ever. Super expensive, they will kick you out if you can't pay and some professors lack empathy. No diversity at all and is cliquey, if you have an option go to UMD down the street.
Scholastica is a great place for your education, as it is still a catholic school with not that great of diversity but an excellent place to make friends and feel accepted among the students and staff.
I like that I was welcomed with warm open arms from my resident advisor, academic advisor, and teachers. I had multiple on campus options for living arrangements, and an opportunity to work on campus for money toward my tuition. I didn’t enjoy the price all that much.
The teachers bring a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience to the table. The school does its best to find ways to make college more affordable for students. One detractor has been the extended campus experience. It is fairly clear that the extended campus program is fairly new and is constantly being improved and worked on, however these constant changes lead to frustration for the students and ultimately result in more negative experiences with the school.
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.
Going to Scholastica has been a really good experience for me thus far. The people here are smart and motivated but still like to have a good time which has been a good balance.
It is a small school and many people who attend this college are from the area so overall student life is alright but I found it to be a bit cliquey but the academics were fantastic. I also dislike Duluth in general the winters are awful and the city during the school year just does not have much going on.
Everybody there wants you to succeed and works so hard to fix problems you might run into in your education. They also do an amazing at creating an inclusive environment for everybody despite being a Catholic college.
The professors and staff really get to know you on a personal basis and strive to help you reach your goal of graduating with a career not just a degree.
It has a beautiful capmpus and the professors are well educated. The location offers many opportunities for students. It’s also a very manageable size of students. Overall it’s a very pretty and good education college.
There is a generally friendly and open atmosphere throughout campus. There are plenty of opportunities to meet people and get involved if you look for them! Professors are approachable and want to see their students succeed!
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.
Small College, with a huge focus on the wellness and academics of the students. Professors are amazing, they always are checking in to see how the students are doing and if they need help. St. Scholastica offers a wide range of student support services, putting the student first always. As far as athletics St. Scholastica offers many team based sports, and many inter murals. Over all this is a place you want to go for community, hospitality, respect, stewardship, and a love of learning.
If interested in occupational therapy, I BEG YOU to consider a different program. Saint Scolastica’s MSOT program is extremely disorganized, lacks diversity and ignores students’ concerns. To a program that is supposed to train health care professionals, I found the lack of empathy and concern for humankind by not only most of the students but most of the professors as well to be both heartbreaking and disturbing.
I liked the small community feel that Scholastica offered, but at times it can feel too small and cliquey. Overall I had a good experience as the general staff and student body was very welcoming and friendly.
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.
The classes are very focused and the teachers are always willing to answer any questions you may have! I positive experience!
The College of Saint Scholastica is a charming campus filled with professors, eager to make a difference in students lives. They not only curate an energetic learning environment, but the instructors work hard to develop lasting relationships with the students in their communities. I personally had a professor check in on me over the summer to see how things were going, and offer support during a stressful time in my life. I would definitely recommend this college.
