    University of St. Thomas - Minnesota Reviews

    What I have enjoyed about my college experience so far at St. Thomas is the community and the commitment to academic excellence. Those are two things that I appreciate about the university. Challenging yourself intellectually is a big emphasis and it has helped me learn so much already in just one year! There are also so many great people there that bring about a very caring, supportive, and fun community. One thing that I would like to see improve is for a clearer and more distinct direction in where we want to head as a university and what we stand for. I think it is important to be direct and straightforward when it comes to the future of education.

    I transferred to the University of St Thomas this year as a sophomore, and I've loved every minute of it! The small campus is extremely homey, and it's nice to have the dorms in walking distance of the classroom buildings. The student center is the perfect place to study, hangout with friends or grab a bite to eat. My professors have all been extremely helpful and care about how I'm doing, not only regarding academics. There's also so many different clubs and activities to get involved with! The dorms are not as good as they should be. There's tape on the walls, skid marks, paint chips, etc. The rooms are spacious and the furniture is taken care of, but the rooms themselves aren't very good.
    Every professor I had, whether it was a degree-based class or a general requirement class, had professors that really cared about my success and wellbeing. UST is a small, tight knit community where you can find a group of people you will connect with for life. There are many non-catholic students, so don’t let the religious affiliation stop you from considering the school. As an undergrad alum of the music department, I highly recommend you consider this school if you’re interested in studying music education. Small, personalized classes and professors who stay in contact for years, what more could you want? We also took classes with grad students, which helped open up conversations about real world teaching life as undergrads.
