4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are friendly and always willing to help. The workload is manageable and there are special study options for those who need it.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a nursing major. I must say that the work is very challenging, but I'm going to be responsible for the lives of others. Therefore, I expect the work to be challenging. SXU has a NCLEX-RN pass rate of 96%. In 2011 SXU was the #1 in Illinois to graduate the most Hispanic and African-American nurses.

4 College Student

Academics: I appreciate that my school helps me with a lot.

3 College Junior

Academics: It's a rigorous program, but that's exactly what I expected. Some classes are harder to study for than others, but as long as we keep up with the reading, it shouldn't be a problem. We have a great selection of clinical sites.

2 College Freshman

Academics: People with my major get the lease amount of help on campus.
