4 College Junior

Athletics: I like the gym. Haven't attended sporting events because I live far off campus.

3 College Junior

Transportation: I drive every day. And Cost of Gasoline is rising. So it all depends on how far you live, and i live pretty far from the campus. It would be a good idea to get most of your classes on certain days so that you don't travel Monday through Saturday.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Well the School has great professors who range from views on one extreme to the other. So it's just like any other University, expect this one is Catholic, and there's mass technically every day. The people or students are really friendly, there's just a feeling of safety all of the time in this campus. There's a lot of Diversity in this campus, but there definitely is a larger number of Hispanic or Latino students.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The have several Major degrees to choose from and very detail to know exactly what you need to take to get the degree.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no greek life at the university.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have not checked the scholarships that the schools offers, so i can't really give an opinion.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Well if it rains i have to walk through the rain in ordered to get to the parking garage. When its cold you do feel the weather since you have to walk to different buildings for class. But i love the campus, everyone is friendly, love the teachers.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The main campus is located in the heart of Houston. The graduate programs are ideal for full time professionals because they offer night classes at several campuses.

3 College Junior

Facilities: I cannot describe the campus life as of yet. The main campus has a library and the gounds look clean and well kept.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Once again, I have not started classes yet. The main campus has a dining area but I do not know what options they have at the site.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: As I stated before, I have not started classes yet. Because of this, I am unable to describe the dining options near my school.

4 College Junior

Diversity: My first class will be this Thursday. I cannot even begin to rate and review the diversity on campus. What I will say is that one challenge to students might be in regards to religion. The University of Saint Thomas is a Catholic university and as such it has crucifixes in all rooms. During my orientation, we said a prayer before beginning the orientation. This might be difficult for students who do not believe in the Catholic faith.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: not much going on at a catholic university

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The University of St. Thomas is not for everyone. It's not a party school with Greek life, thousands of students to meet, wild fans at huge sporting events, or Ivy League admissions standards. But for those who decide to attend UST, there are great opportunities to flourish here. The small community provides students a comfortable environment in a large city. Students are well prepared for careers, and many departments help students find internship, research, and networking opportunities to help better the chances of students landing a dream job. As a Catholic institution, there are convenient Mass times, and friendly priests and nuns who provide moral support for students, regardless of their religion. Catholic students can get involved with religious activities to deepen their faith and meet other people who share the same values.

There are so many ways to become a big fish in a small pond here, with students encouraged to become leaders on campus. The small population allows most students to become familiar faces. Even the shyest people make long-lasting friendships. The small classes also lead to close relationships between students and teachers. Plus, the president of the University can be seen regularly walking around campus, talking to students on a first-name basis. You can rest assured that you will not feel like a number here. Maybe you won’t leave UST with a ton of drunken nights you will never remember, but you will definitely leave with memories you will never forget.
