Saint Peter's is a small campus so it is likely you come across the same people daily. It is in an urban area with a diverse community so I enjoy the atmosphere when I attend classes throughout the day. From experience, I can say the professors and staff are readily available for students during a time of need, whether it is academic or personal. College is what you make it and I am fortunate enough to surround myself with friends who make it such an amazing experience. Being a nursing major, I have a pile of workload so I spend a lot of my time at the library, which is an exceptional place to study in without any distraction. SPU clubs also try to get the students into the school spirit and I can say that there are some fun events that can be attended throughout the school year. Regardless, it is predominately commuter school so many of the students return home after classes end, but it is still possible to make friends on campus!

Saint Peter's University has a diverse community of professors. Some professor are experts in their field, but are not great teachers and sometimes force the students to learn the material on their own. Other professors are both experts in their field and great at teaching and getting students to understand certain difficult concepts. The classes run 50 minutes long on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. On Tuesdays and Fridays, they run for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Labs can be up to 3-4 hours long. In general, classes are not dreadfully long, allowing the professors to keep the student's attention, instead of an extremely long class where students may fall asleep or lose focus. Our general curriculum has some unnecessary aspects, however every class is valuable and can vary widely. As a science major, I have seen and experienced the best and worst classes or professors, and I always suggest consulting Rate My Professor before enrolling in any course.

My experiences with the courses and professors have been good. The professors will help you and answer any question you ask. I have been able to talk to professors and contact them outside the classroom for anything and they are willing to help their students. Also the class sizes are good they are not huge like the classes at a college like Rutgers or Penn State. I feel like if you pay attention in class, take notes, read and study and listen to the professors you will be just fine.As far as the quality of courses go that will depend on your interests and your work ethics.
