3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: average except I live far away.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: not as efficient as I would like them to be.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: To be a nursing student at St. Vincent's you don't feel like a number. The staff members really seem vested in their students. I believe with their nursing curriculum they set high expectations in comparison to other nursing programs in the state however, I feel this is why their nursing student graduates are known to be well prepared upon graduation.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office has been efficient in processing my financial aid. I gave them and A- because I had been informed that I had been awarded a pell grant for $6000 only for me to find out approximately 1 month prior to the start of school that I was not eligible due to me already having a bachelors degree. This was disappointing to say the least and did not allow me time to adjust my budget so that I could put extra funds asside. In a way I was banking on it.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid at St. Vincent's was somewhat confusing to me, and it is something I am still dealing with, and I will have to pay out-of-pocket for some courses. The financial aid office; however, seemed to be very welcoming and helpful to me throughout all of my confusion this past semester. Unfortunately I have had to learn through my mistakes the correct ways in which to fill out the financial aid forms, but with the help of the good people in the financial aid office I now know the correct ways in which to complete these forms. One thing I wish they would not do on the financial aid award letter is not include the money that the student is eligible for through a parent plus loan because that money is not guaranteed, and it is something the parent has to apply for themselves, and that was not made clear to me at the beginning of this process.

Academic Experience: Registation and the whole system is horrible. Just to log n and get in is a hassle. You might spend an hour just trying to get into the system then trying to get into your course is an other headache. The sotware or whatever they are using can't handle the heavy flow of students who are trying to log on at the same time. St. Vincent's also sets up who gets to register first by how many credits you have so if you have 28 or more credits you get to register first, even though you may be failing the course. So someone who is passing but has less then 28 credits has to wait while people who are failing take up all the seats because they have enough credits. This ends up in chaos because at the end of this people are taken out of their courses and moved around and back and forth. No good!

Tuition & Financial Aid: Its expensive and strict. They do not seem to be very knowleable when it comes to other means to pay for school. I have asked numerous times for help and other options, and I am still paying out of pocket for my courses.

3 College Junior

Student Body: My classes usally consist of students straight out of high school, but mostly its young to middle aged adults who work or have children. Most of the students are very hard working, they know what they want and take there studies very seriously. We help each other out and have even formed some relationships outside of school. But it is very clear that studies come first in these peoples lives.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I feel that the school is really good at preparing us for what we need. A lot of us are learning how to become registered nurses so they make sure we learn the basics and then more. The only complaint i have is hearing a lot about a wait list for clinical.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The only thing that i think is bad is that we have to pay for printing. The class rooms have this cool board but some teachers do not like to use it. It's called a smart board.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I think that so far all the teachers are very well educated. Therefore you know that you are being taught by the best.

2 College Sophomore

Student Body: The school has very strict political and religious veiws very conservitave and laid back.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: it was a good experience got the aid I needed and had to pay very little to attend

College Senior

Overall Experience: I like the students and that we help each other. i think some proffersors can be a little more forth coming with their curriculum and the school in general needs to be more specific about how the program works.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Up to 18 Credits – I feel that you have to seek out information and that the staff does not get back to you in a timely manner. Also, think they can do a better job in educatinf first time students bout the curriculum and how things work here.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Good Environment for All – I believe this campus is very well kept. The athletic facillities are very nice and new. The student center is always busy with different activities which makes the campus very alive and popular.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I enjoy being in a classroom setting and taking notes from the proffessor. Instead of being alone and basically teaching yourself the new material for an entire semester. The workload seems to be smaller, however this is not a good thind due to I have not learned much in my experience.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Not to Shabby – This year they just established wireless access for the entire campus. This was extremely helpful, and very beneficial. The network was always reliable and had no difficulties what so ever. They had computer labs in each of the dorms with connected printers which were always being used. This made having a laptop not so neccesary, which was very nice. I have my own, but rarely have used it over 3 years at college.
