4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I have not had to encounter any of the listed policies - I live off campus and haven't heard of any problems

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Class size and quality of professors are the best!

5 College Freshman

Computers: Never any issues with connection and help is always available

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The University of St. Thomas is a great campus with lots of driven students.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Don't use the lab much except to print off lots of papers because I want to use my paper quota up. it meet my needs sufficiently.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation is average for the size of school and location

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Im a graduate student and a lot of my fellow classmates are married with children or full-time jobs. Not a lot of time for partying.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Hate the long winters but spring, summer and fall are glorious!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There aren't a lot of scholarships in my particular department so I went outside the school to find aide.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Honestly, this one area kind of disappoints me because the student population really doesn't LOOK diverse, but obviously not all diversity can be determined by observing students' appearance. I am a young white woman who probably looks like a common student. My boyfriend is black and does look out of place when we're there but we haven't experienced any obvious negative reactions.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Generally I feel pretty safe. Just make sure to take common safety precautions. Be smart, Plan ahead to avoid risky situations (walking alone late at night if you're a woman)

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: twin cities is a great place to live but the winters get really long! The one thing i really really don't like about the area are the never ending winters that really put a hamper on things however it would probably be different if I could find an outdoor winter activity I really liked.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The program Im in was rated one of the best in the country (clinical social work)

I really am very please with the experience thus far. I do wish there was some more ethnic diversity but the student body in the program are diverse in other ways. (Racial diversity isn't the only kind of diversity) I guess that just means I have to work a little harder to kind it outside the classroom- which is fine.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: its not a huge school so going to football games isn't like going to a state university

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is a lot to do in St. Paul. I'm not much of a house -party kind of gal but do love to go salsa dancing and go to a bar for a great burger afterwards. A lot of great ethnic resteraunts in the area as well!

Campus Dining: We have a smoothie shop and plenty of coffee shops. We also have a chill hangout place which serves hoagies, pizza, burgers, and appetizers. In addition, there is the main cafeteria which is priced at 7$ for breakfast, 8$ for lunch, and $9 for dinner. There are plenty of healthy options which have make your own omelet in the morning and fresh melon sometimes grapes, blackberries, or mango. For lunch and dinner there is always soup and salad, a grill, and a stir fry line. There is also the meal of the day and plenty of beverage choices from a soda machine to milk or juice. There is also a cafe on south campus which is smaller but it cooks more home cooked meals I with fresh fruit and salad. It also alternates between a burger bar and a sandwich bar. There are also plenty of beverage and desert choices along with an ice cream bar.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Absolutely no alcohol or drugs are allowed in hath dorms. Most people will party off campus or at the University of MN. Public Safety does a very good job of controlling under aged drinking on campus. It's very hard to drink while in the dorms because there are always RA's on duty. But if you are of age than it is okay to have alcohol in your room

Scholarships: Financial aid is what made it possible for me to go to this school. I am a very responsible student and figured out all of the numbers and brought it into my financial aid advisor. He has been very helpful in answering my questions and I also received a nice amount of aid from FAFSA. But I still had to take out a few loans and will probably be paying for awhile after college. But the education is worth it and I will continue to work towards scholarships.

Diversity: My high school was about 40% diverse, so I grew up around many people of different ethnic diversity, economic background, political beliefs and religion. But when I came to St. Thomas, it turns out that it is mostly white upper-middle class . Everyone gets along well and most people have a very respectable marketing brand. St. Thomas has a wonderful educational system and most of the people are extremely friendly which is nice for making connections and networking. I typically meet people that are Caucasian and they are either Christian or don't have a belief. Most people are also conservative. But since I grew up in a more diverse school, and I am Mexican American, I enjoy learning about different cultures and diversity. At school, I am apart of Hana which is the largest multi-cultural group on campus. I am on the general board and we host events that teach students about diversity through leadership, social justice, communication, and culture. Everyone is welcome, but the members are mostly ethnic people from Asia, Africa, and their are also some Hispanics. Lately, I have made a friend group in the gay-community and we all enjoy dancing. I have also made a friend group with the international students at our school. Most of them are Egyptians and speak Arabic, but there are others from Poland, Cuba, Japan, and Africa. I enjoy being around people of different diversity and cultures. I wish there was more diversity at my school, but I am happy here. Most people are friendly and accepting.
