The University of Saint Joseph is a wonderful school, but it could use some improvement. Although the tuition is high, their financial aid packages cover a lot of the costs. The campus is tiny, but it is nice. Some people have noisy neighbors in the dorms, as I did. They would scream karaoke at 3 am. Our school has "quiet hours" set in place, but they didn't always listen. The dorms have no air conditioning so my dorm was always hot. This could just be Assumption Hall. The food is always hit or miss. The Cafe sometimes tries to make fancy meals, but they come out bland. Other times they offer hand rolled sushi and it is delicious. The food is definitely overpriced as well. Lastly, the teachers. Some teacher loves what they're doing and love to work with you until you understand what you are doing. Other teacher don't understand how to convey concepts to students in a manner that is understandable. The class sizes are really small, so you get to know the teachers personally as well.

Overall it is a very good school. The education and academic opportunities range and provide the students with many options to try new things. Every professor that I have had the pleasure to meet has done an excellent job. Both with teaching the academic class, but also showing that they care for the students well-being and success. The school is quiet and there is not a huge party scene, but there are other things to do around West Hartford that are close. The sports teams are also fun and the athletic teams tend to be very close with one another. Overall the school does a great job providing an exceptional education for their students.
I am a graduate student at the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) and really like the small class sizes, the individual attention the profession is able to give you, the proximity to shopping centers. The information taught is relevant and practical to you’re major. I would like for there to be an increase in men to women ratio. The new President of USJ recently made changes and declared USJ to be a co-education university.
