Saint Peter's University is not a bad college. It is a very diverse school with both boys and girls of all races and religions. The class sizes are not really big as the biggest classes are usually around 30-32 students which allows you to get more one on one with the professors. There also many activities to do on campus,however if you commute you may not have time for the activities as the activities are more later in the day but if you dorm you will without doubt get the full experience and get to do as much activities as you can on campus. The rec center is not bad.The food is good there are about three cafes on campus all in the student center. The library can be useful.The only issue it is expensive but if you get a scholarship and grants from the state you should get a lot of help to pay for your tuition and fees.

Academically, this is a great school and everyone is so driven to succeed. This is also the reason why it is somewhat difficult to meet new people because everyone is focused on only their studies.
