3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It a very laid back school as long as you do what your supposed to. After quite hours as long as the music isn't really loud no one will bother you. Unless it's finals week

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not much goes on that I know of on campus. I've walked across campus at 3am when I was a freshmen by my self. It cameras everywhere on campus so they can pretty much see everything all the time.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: There isn't really any night life around st leo. There is one bar and a few people that may throw house parties. For the most part you will be driving to Tampa to go out.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay for the most part. It does cost a lot to live in some of them especially since they don't have a kitchen in them. They just changed the housing process and it made it a lot easier. Most of the dorms are on campus so the walk to classes and other places isn't really that bad.

Local Atmosphere: It's too out-of-the-way campus is good but it's better to live off of it

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It's okay same type of food over and over but they have a variety of choices salad, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, hot station, omelette station,fried station, stir fry station. You can have different types of meal plan and if you have the unlimited meal plan you go to the Lions den and get $100 free per semester

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The overall experience at Saint Leo University is decent. You make friends, have fun, go to school, and live in the sun—although the small size does limit some of the resources normal college students have access to. There are no big football games with huge tailgating parties, and you won't see a big school band; nor is SLU the place for your typical social scene run by Greek life. The location is quaint, simple, and actually quite beautiful, but there just isn't a whole lot going on in the area. Yet, at the same time, you are only a 25-minute drive from the city of Tampa. Most students fall in love with the Bay atmosphere while they are here, and the roaring tourist economy of Orlando is only an hour away.

Your experience at this school will be greatly enhanced if you have a car. It's just not the place you can find everything you need within walking distance, and public transportation down here hardly exists. The school is small enough that you can get to know most of the people you will be spending your college career with, classes are not too difficult, and most the the professors really do care about how you perform. All in all, there is fun to be had at Saint Leo, but you may have to find it on your own. If you are the type of person that is outgoing and likes to create your own fun, then this school may be your place. If you're somebody that would rather sit back and let all the fun come to you, then I would suggest choosing a bigger school.
