My experience at St. Thomas has been phenomenal thus far. The small classes and caring professors have allowed me to become more engaged in my academics, and all of the support-oriented resources on campus have helped me excel. Personally, I have found St. Thomas to be an exceptionally good fit due to the accessibility of undergraduate research opportunities with university faculty. Just in my first year, I have been involved in two extracurricular research projects with my professors, with at least another two planned for my sophomore year. These opportunities are vitally important for graduate school applications.
The university really places an emphasis on giving students options to get involved on campus with daily events. The location of the school itself is incredibly beautiful and is arguably in the safest part of St. Paul. The residence halls are solidly above average compared to nearby universities.
In short, you really get what you pay for when you attend St. Thomas.
Review University of St. Thomas - Minnesota
UST is a phenomenal school. It has one of the most beautiful campuses you will see situated on the Mississippi River in a residential area of St. Paul with another campus in downtown Minneapolis. New facilities. Always have best sports teams in their conference/D3- many national titles. Wonderful professors, lots of research and leadership opportunities. Healthy and active campus. Food/dining is excellent-fresh and healthy options. Public Safety makes you feel safe on and off campus.
Does need more on campus living options for non-freshmen. Students dress nicely to class in more expensive brands/looks are important. Party scene is mostly bars with some house parties (but do get busted). Since there is a lot going on in the city, even though it sports teams do exceptionally well, there isn't a HUGE school spirit vibe because some students do their own thing. There is always a crowd at football and basketball games especially against rival St. John's.
My experience at UST has been amazing! I just finished my first-year and I had three mentors, all which were wonderful and very helpful. Having three mentors was my favorite experience of UST because I built a relationship with different individuals with different backgrounds, knowledge and experience. This way I learned more and became involved with various and different opportunities and club/activities at school.
