5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love being involved! It is a great way to meet people!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It is the perfect balance, Not too overbearing, yet safe

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They will escort us across campus if we feel unsafe.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: If you came from a big city, you'll be frowning for a while. Sure, the campuses has a lot of events, but most people don't really take advantage of it. You will, and that's what'll keep you going in class because the campuses are in the middle of nowhere.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: Caucasians everywhere. Not saying that it is bad, just the truth. Although we have students from various backgrounds, it will be very difficult because most students came from the Midwest. They're not use to it. There's a lot of segregation issues (other than the obvious gender thing since we all live on two different campuses) that will agitate you.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It's great because your education is what you make it out of here. Class sizes are small, if you email the profs you can pretty much get in to whatever classes you want (most of the time), and the professors are very available to talk to you. They are your resources.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: You'll want to bring your own computers anyway, but you can totally have no laptop and just use the computers on campus. There are small computer labs available on each floor of the dorms anyway, so it's great. The problem is the network. It's slow, and unless you have the LAN cable, it's going to be on and off sometimes on your phone/tablet/whatever.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Pretty strict, since it's a catholic school. you have to have the opposite sex leave the campus by the end of the day (to catch the last bus is basically the rule).

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There are a lot of options to choose from, so unless you want to really really be a translator or an architect or something specific like that, you'll love the majors and the education here.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am creating my own major here--well, individualizing one of the majors, and it's worked out great for me.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: For two years, girls are required to choose the 'unlimited' plan. Boys will be jealous, but it's super expensive. Plus, the meals are the same all the time. I'm sick of it.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The only reason I chose this school is because of the financial aid.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have a bus every weekend to go to St. Cloud/the mall. And a bus to run between the two campuses with a great schedule. I think it's great and enough, it saves you a lot of money. Although it would be nice to have a bus every day to go to St. Cloud.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you have a car, it'll be great cause you can drive to St. Cloud, but if not, you'll be stuck walking around St. Joe's or calling Gary's pizza.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It's bad because there is only one sorority. We don't have a fraternity. And the sorority earlier doesn't throw parties either (that's not the bad part, I just thought it was suppose to be a college experience). The sorority is pretty much like a more private version of a normal volunteer club/group. They throw two big dances per year.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: you're required to live on campus for two years. I'd say that living on campus makes everything easier, so it's not a problem for me.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's not super easy to live off campus and they way they do housing registration kind of sucks but most seniors and juniors get to live either off campus, in townhouses or apartments.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We're just a D3 school but things get pretty intense especially for football games. The Tommie Johnnie game is always fun!

3 College Sophomore

Computers: You have to pay to print in the libraries. Most freshman and sophomore dorms have computer labs in them with free printing but not all upper classmen living does.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't ever go into town like most kids do. I just spend my nights in the dorms at sju which is kind of uncommon.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: This pretty much totally depends on your RA. Some RAs are extremely strict and others could honestly care less. If you're smart and quiet about breaking rules like drinking or spending the night on the other campus you won't get caught.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Seeing as we have a split campus, when the roads are really bad and the buses can't run they have to cancel classes.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: This is an extremely safe campus. When people decided where they are going to sit in the dining halls, they will put their phones down to save their spot since no one is going to take it.

Computers: It's great!!! But not really for mac users and windows 8 users. It's hard to get wifi.

Most students who attend CSB and SJU love it. Throughout the academic year, students experience so much culture, which allows them to grow not only intellectually, but also with a more global perspective. CSB/SJU impacts students' lives because the people are so nice, the education is great, and the professors are easily reachable and understanding. But most importantly are the friendships students develop along the way. What many students love the most is the school spirit and the fact that the faculty likes to get involved in events, as well. It gives students the impression of a community and family.

At first, campus can seem overwhelming, but as the year goes on and students get adjusted to life in college, they get the opportunity to learn and experience appreciating life more. CSB/SJU students are very intelligent and gifted in the academic field as well as on the sports field. Both schools push students every day, inside and outside of the classroom, to want something better in life and to excel in whatever path life guides them on. If students had the chance to pick another school, many wouldn’t because why risk something that is already excellent? CSB and SJU prepare students for life after college. Most students who graduate from CSB/SJU tend to go to grad or medical school. Also, most students who graduate tend to find jobs easily.
