5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: St. Catherine is located in the middle on the capital. You'd think, "ugh... that's rough!" , but you'd be thinking wrong! It may be in the middle of the capital, but it's tucked away, not really even 2 miles from town, in a higher community! 5 minutes away is the Mall of America! 20 minutes away is valleyfair! You could watch NHL, MBA, MLB whenever, because stadiums are about 5 to 10 minutes away! Everyone is accepting of students, because there are about 10 other large colleges located in the twin cities! Safety is excellent! There are many recreational gyms and centers that are in walking distance from campus!

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: St. Catherine is an all-girl college, however boys from other colleges that are close are allowed to take classes at St. Kate's if they aren't offered at their campus. Somehow all students, no matter how diverse, are connected in some way at St. Kate's. Everyone dresses how that want to dress and others are accepting! Unless if the dresswear is taken to extremes such as extremely inappropriate, it will be looked down on. Relationships are very acceptable at St. Kate's! Girls often invite boyfriends over for lunch or movie dates, and everyone is accepting of same sex relationships too!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I really don't know much about the Greek life at St. Catherine University. I'm pretty sure that they are treated just like any other student, with respect and acknowledgment! They are viewed just as any other diverse student, that they are human, and they are the same as us. They are not treated any different, they are treated with same high equality! I believe that there is no special housing either.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors at my school are great! I haven't met one yet that doesn't make time to help a student or make theirselves available when help is needed. Classes are no larger than about 20 students, so all professors are pretty close with students, and it allows students to feel more comfortable and allows them to take in more academically. The curriculum is some what strict overall, but with the resources that my school offers, it is easily obtainable by any student who whats to be there! I haven't met anyone who doesn't! Registration process was pretty easy to do, just fill out the application, no fees! Workload keeps you busy, but there are many labs and group activities! The most popular areas of study at St. Kate's would be Nursing, Physical Therapy, and Education.

4 College Freshman

Academics: My specific major is nursing and its unique at St. Kate's because it is the most popular major there. in your first year you can get credits for internships to just about anywhere you would like to go! I'm going to be getting an internship at a veteran's hospital, because after schooling I'm going to be a nurse and physician assistant in the military. Workload is consistent, but not crazy. It includes many labs, hands on work, and group activities. The curriculum is strict, but obtainable!

Facilities: Student life on my campus is the best and very beneficial. At St. Catherine's there is unlimited amount of student resources in the student centers and everyone there is willing to put out a helping hand on literally anything there. Every weekend there is always something fun and great planned out! There are many exciting and fun clubs to join and I take part in a great majority including Campus Ministry, Artisan's Coalition, and Students in Health Care group. At this college we literally live by a little saying at our 'all-girl' college university, 'You are your sister's keeper', and it is the best thing about the campus, is that we are so close in community that we have each others in times of need and in times of great!

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Some unique things that set my school apart from others is that at my college we have a program for 1st year students that I'm enrolled in where you can access extra assistance with college academics, work, and life. It is the best program there and it is greatly beneficial to any student! Another thing that makes me college unique is that it is an all-girl university. At my school we literally live by one of the many motos such as , 'You are your sister's keeper'. It is so true at my school, because are always there for one another through good and bad because we are so close as a community!

Diversity: Not very much diversity, but there are more than others.

College Senior

Drug Safety: I wouldn't know much about this topic.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: They can be very strict especially for a college. If you want to study and not be in parties then this is the place for you! If you're more of a party-goer then this is not your place. You will get in trouble if they find you drinking and if you're underage.

1 College Senior

Health & Safety: I don't see them often and they don't have that many people working. It's kind of sad! Either way, I have always felt safe!

1 College Senior

Scholarships: Financial aid department is HORRIBLE! They will not help you! In my experience, they have never helped me and when they have tried, I already knew the answer! Not a huge fan of financial aid. They are also very rude!

College Senior

Greek Life: I don't know much about them therefore cannot give them a rating.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: St. Kate's has partnered up with local businesses and we get discounts at some restaurants (like Chipotle!)!!!!

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I can't say much since I haven't lived on campus much.

3 College Senior

Computers: There are many computers on campus that you can take advantage of. It's not necessary to buy your own laptop to come to St. Kate's but if you want to socialize or if you're a procrastinator then I strongly recommend you buy a laptop. The library is only open 'till 11pm which can be disappointing at times because other colleges libraries are open WAY late. Every student gets $50 dollars for printing (10 cents per page). Majority of the students don't use all their points and if that is the case then you can always find a buddy that has her full $50 dollars printing money.

Sometimes the internet can be SLOW or disconnect you from the internet. ALWAYS save your work (every 5 minutes)!

2 College Senior

Nightlife: Since St. Kate's is very small and filled with women there aren't many parties at campus! Actually, there are NONE. Downtown Minneapolis is about 20 minutes away and you can access many nightclubs.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: St. Kate's is an all women institution therefore you will not see men on campus. BUT you can head over to St. Thomas if you really need to see guys. There is a lot of diversity at St. Kate's which is one of the things that drew me into St. Kate's. Not everyone is the same and almost everyone is welcoming. It's a great atmosphere to be at. If you want to meet people, I would strongly recommend to be involved on campus and not be afraid to leave that dorm room. You will never mingle if you don't leave your dorm room. At the beginning of the year there is an event where all clubs and organizations display the work that they do and people can get involved by signing up to their mailing list or wanting to join the club/organization. Always get involved because that is the way to meet new people and make connections!
