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.
Review University of St. Thomas - Texas
I transferred from a state school after a family crisis. IMO, if you don’t come in as a freshman or if you don’t live on campus, finding friends and getting involved is a challenge. Being a commuter and transfer made making friends hard at first.
The classes are intense: fairly heavy workload across the board, but some professors are tougher than others. The professors care a lot about their field. Mine have been understanding of my situation and are happy to work around anything that comes up. They always ask how they can help.
The students are diverse. Students from all religious backgrounds, cultures, rconomic statuses, political affiliations. The conservative Catholics make themselves known but never force their beliefs. As a gay atheist, I am able to engage in thought-provoking and respectful dialogue in class (as an IS major there is a LOT of dialogue) and never feel that I am not being listened to because of who I am/what I believe.
St.Thomas is a great school for anyone who wants a small size classroom, and for the professor to remember you by your name and not by a number. The professors enjoy teaching, and take their job seriously, all of them encourage students to visit them during their office hours for any additional tutoring needed. Diversity is huge at the university, more than 50 countries are represented, and everyone is open-minded no matter what religion or cultural background. Everyone knows each other, so it is easy to make a group of friends if you are starting of as a freshman or if you are a transfer student.
