    I’m an incoming Freshmen and so far my impression of UST is nothing short of amazing! The admissions staff were incredibly helpful throughout the process of choosing a college. Also, if you have pretty good grades and ACT/SAT scores you’re sure to be awarded some merit scholarships, which in my case bumped UST to the top of my list. I’m planning on majoring in Biochemistry (one of their smaller majors) and after talking to the head of the department, I can fully understand why so many people say the faculty are there to help and really care about you as an individual. I’m really excited for the next four years!

    First off, all of the Teachers are amazing, they're office doors are always open and they're willing to help! The campus feel is everything I was looking for in a college and I wouldn't change a thing. There are plenty of food services offered and plenty of variety and delicious options. As far as rooming options go for first year students, Saint Thomas offers 2 incredibly nice options and two decently nice options, so no matter which dorm you get you know that you’ll be comfortable and apart of a lively atmosphere. All and all, its impossible to stress how at home I feel here and anyone who steps foot on the campus and talks to someone who works or attended this school would know why.
    The University of St. Thomas staff is very friendly and helpful. One of the reasons I wanted to attend the University was for the individualized treatment each professor has with their students. Additionally, the campus is beautiful and well layered. The University has a good athletic presence, at least for a college that isn’t a division one school.
    There are definitely a few drawbacks. One, the tuition is very expensive. Unless you have money or get a really good scholarship, I wouldn’t suggest coming here. Additionally, it is not a party school. While I myself am not a party person, for those who are, this is not the school for you. Finally, some of the curriculum is unnecessary. A lot of the core material has nothing to do with your major and only makes it harder to graduate on time.
