This university is actually pretty awesome. Despite the not-so-great food selection, everything else is great! The moment you step on campus, everyone is super nice and welcoming. The fact that it's a small school (which means small class sizes) makes it very easy to develop a close relationship with your professors! The classes are all academically demanding, so as long as you try and do your work, you should be fine! Student life is pretty good as the RA's and CA's, as well as the clubs and organizations around school, come up with some fun events and activities that everyone can enjoy! It honestly is very easy to make friends, especially if you live in the dorms. UST offers some great academic programs and they are very generous when awarding scholarships. Overall, the University of St. Thomas is a great school. As with every school, it does have its pros and cons, but all-in-all, your time spent here is going to be well worth it.
When I began at St. Thomas,I realized that it was very competitive and every class, even elective courses, were taught very thoroughly and there is always a lot of reading reading required no matter the class. I believe that the education quality is very personal. Although the education and classroom quality is great, one setback is the lack of help given out by the financial aid advisors. I depend on my financial aid to cover most or all of my schooling and when life gets in the way sometimes and there are obstacles outside of the classroom that I am battling, I turn to the financial aid advisors to help me find other sources of money to cover my tuition but when I go and speak to a financial aid advisor and am left with more anxiety than I walked in with. I want to learn, in the institution that I call "home". I thought that the advisors are there to help with searching for sources of money but they are only there as messengers about scholarship cancellations and money collectors.
There are only two resident halls, one being apartment style. The apartment style is for Juniors and Seniors but it is hard to get into because the hall holds under 100 people. The other dorms are a shared room with bathroom in suite and are nice for freshman, but the meal plan is $1500 per semester! This wouldn't be as bad if the dining hall situation was better. There is a subway, an itty bitty "convenience" section, and 3 food stalls to get food from- and I have gotten sick a few times from this. Also, the dining hall keeps strange hours. For this reason, I moved off campus.
