I've enjoyed most of my classes so far; some electives I feel are useless and a waste of my money though. I understand the schools intent of making us well rounded individuals with the university exploration classes, but honestly, most kids just BS their way through them and retain little knowledge on the subject.

Professors are caring, nice, knowledgeable, and fair. Great all around!

Class sizes are small, which I find attractive and more personable.

Classes in the newer buildings have access to more technology and those in the older buildings are sort of left to fend for themselves with little to no technology.

I like the fact that Saint Leo does not have a football team to overshadow the other sports I feel like this allows students to be much more involved in all the other sports and attend the games to provide support. The small nature of the school makes team members and regular students very close and supportive of one another, which I think is a great quality! While the fields are nice, the gym is awful. It's too small and out of date; this and the locker rooms definitely need improvement.

This school has taught me to find purpose and hope career and work-wise. Moreover, I have already finished Freshman year and I already have 2 Dean's List Certificates and a consistent 3.8 GPA!

Moreover, I have also learned to get involved as well as make life-long friends who I wouldn't trade the world for, and the same can be said about Saint Leo.

Overall, I feel completely at home at Saint Leo University.
