3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I won't be using off-campus housing during my 4 years at St Joes.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We occasionally eat in restaurants and fast food in the nearby town and in Portland.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I have not had any issues with violation of rules so I may not have the most comprehensive perspective. Seems pretty fair.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The tuition and housing are very expensive. Financial aid was pretty generous. Get the best grades that you can for the most financial aid/scholarship.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am enjoying the social life at St Joes very much. It has helped me bond with my teammates and other people on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food in Pearson's is sometimes not cooked enough.

Delivery from Chalet is difficult.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great because I really have a sense of community with my fellow students. The social aspects of campus life are very good. The campus is small so it's easy to get around. It is very cold here and we have had a lot of snow this winter.

1 College Freshman

Diversity: It's the whitest catholic school in the whitest most catholic state. The school actually promotes LGBT and alternative sexualities, but the student body has their own opinions.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a couple fast food chains around 10 minutes away, but other than that there's nothing.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: Security is insanely overbearing and the school is in the middle of the woods so off-campus parties aren't an option. There are a few parties in the suites, but they get shut down and written up too often.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: The school requires freshman to purchase the most and expensive meal plan with the least variety, and they make it very difficult to change afterwards. The meal plan has an absurdly low amount of flex money and a ton of unredeemable meal swipes so you're forced to eat in the cafe. The cafe has fairly good food, but they only serve food during scheduled classes and stop serving at 6:30 p.m. So it's very difficult to get 3 meals a day. The cafe staff are either work-study students of incredibly rude and jaded adults. Over the weekend they actually lock students out except for a few hours and they only serve two meals. Unless you skip class to eat or buy you're own food you'll probably starve.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The whole financial aid department is around five people in the basement of a dorm. The school has a stated tuition of 40,000, but they give everyone ten to twenty thousand off as long as your not worth millions of dollars. The office is overworked and very difficult to communicate with. They will use money from your tuition checks and scholarships to pay off things like parking fines or building fees without asking. Basically it's bad.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options within a 10 minute drive but if you are willing to drive a little more there are even more restaurants at a greater variety.

4 College Freshman

Administration: the administration provide a very safe and friendly environment.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: This school is very expensive and I had try to contact financial aid to request more money but they denied the request. It then took them a few weeks to approve my private loan.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: They are very clean but kind of out dated

3 College Freshman

Administration: A lot of my friends have been written up (by RA's) for underage drink, and have had to gone to consoling as a result. I know some who have gotten written up 2, and even 3 times. It is taken very seriously here, which I think is pretty stupid. Telling them not to drink is just going to make them do it more.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Baseball and softball are the most popular sports on campus, whether its varsity or intramurals. Most students participate in at least one, sometimes more than one sport.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There really are any campus crimes that have happened that i know of. It is a small school, where pretty much everyone knows everyone, or has at lead heard of, so i don't think people are willing to destroy their reputations for some as futile as a crime. I see security on a daily basis. They are actively engaged on our campus, and very friendly.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The problem I have is getting in touch with the person/people I need to talk to, which can get rather frustrating. Be persistent, and be sure to do some research to see what is available.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: We have things to do on campus, which is fairly small, but so many options outside of the campus. We live in a great college town, with a Walmart near by, restaurants, and some shopping stores. We are also a short drive to Portland, which is always fun.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There more girls than guys, which is a downside for girls, but most of the guys that are here are very attractive. Most of the guys here are exercise science majors, so they are all pretty fit, which is a plus. The girls are are mostly pretty as well, and fit as well.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The Suites and pods occasionally have a couple people but security cracks down a lot and its difficult to have any fun unless there's an R.A. over your shoulder the whole time.

1 College Sophomore

Administration: You can't bring anyone on campus at all, unless you bring them through to security every single time they show up. They go through the parking lot and bill your student account directly if you park anywhere near the grass. The patrols will knock on your door for playing music anytime after 9p.m. and any kind of non-school related gathering gets shut down almost immediately.

1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security harasses and abuses students. When it comes to issues about sexual assault and theft they couldn't care less. If you have more than seven people in your room or are smoking a cigarette in your room you can bet they'll be there, but if you get robbed they'll run to the police and say it's not their problem.
