This school has a beautifully welcoming community. Everyone here is interested and invested in your success as a student and future career-woman. Class sizes are small allowing me to get to know my professors and classmates on a personal level. This comes in handy when its essay or test time because i have a ton of resources to go to. I also love the CAE at this school, also known as the Center of Academic Excellence. The tutors have very flexible hours and the ability to get help as a group comes in handy because you have other students experiencing similar challenges in the same class. At USJ you are challenged, encouraged, empowered, and inspired to achieve so much more.

I had an amazing experience at the University of Saint Joseph as an undergraduate student. Although the school is not always the top of prospective students' lists due to the all female aspect, this should actually be seen as a positive of the institution. This school produces strong female leaders that are ready to go out and make a difference in the world. The class sizes are small and the professors are dedicated to helping you succeed. I believe in this institution so much that I will be continuing my graduate studies in the inaugural Physician Assistant Program at USJ starting this winter.

It is overall a very quiet and laid back school. There could be more events and activities to look forward to, but other than that it is a good school.
