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.

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

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.

Local Atmosphere: We are near St. Cloud State and sometimes the students here and there interact. We also have a shuttle that takes us to the shopping mall in St. Cloud.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think it's great to have these, but sometimes it's best to look further into matter. Not every sexual assult will have an innocent victim. There was one regarding against my roommate's friend, but he wasn't the one, so the police should have a closer look see who's innocent and not.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The Link is AWESOME!!! Since the time changed from last year, it's better and you can get to your classes or work easier and faster.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't really like to go to parties, but sometimes I just go after a big exam or just to have some fun time with friends.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments around here isn't that bad. I'm not planning to live off campus until junior year though, so I don't know how much the school can help us find a living space off campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Out of all the colleges I've visited, I would have to say that St. Ben's have the best housing. Some rooms are not that big, but it's fine as long as the heater works. I live in Corona and we have an AC, but my room is right in the corner, so it's cold no matter what. My roommate and I had to live with the cold during winter and we sent many requests to maintence. The maintence man is such a sweetheart and is like a grandpa to us. He tries to make our room warmer no matter what.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not everyone forces you to drink or do something you to do drugs. I rarely see anyone doing drugs here, but I've seen some people drink too much. It's not a big deal if it doesn't have anything to do with you, but if it does, then just find some help.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The events that go on are fun and you get to interact with students from different cultures. Especially during the Festival of Cultures and this year we had the Asian New Year with some cool performances. Students enjoy it and we also get our FAE credits too!!

3 College Freshman

Diversity: You can see the diversity here is not that big of a group, since the minority here is a small proportion. On the other hand, the non-minority students are well behaved towards the minorities and also try to take care of us when we need help.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: It is nice to have a bus to get you places... we are all dreaming about a light rail or bullet train.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: We have all of the broad majors and minors, but there are not many specific ones. This is because we are such a small community and school.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You will never be peer pressured into drinking or doing drugs. The policy is there for your safety.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love the atmosphere. It is a small town, but it never quite feels like that. Feels like there are so many more options.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: It is hit or miss. Sometimes I have a great time and other times I am just walking around looking for something to do.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love all my professors and classes!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The scholarships do not increase for a single student even though the cost of attendance increases every year. They also DO NOT offer new scholarships to already enrolled students, such as the legacy scholarship, even though almost my entire family has gone to CSBSJU.

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.
