4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love how we have small class sizes so each student can have individual attention. I have found that I am more focused in this kind of environment than during a core class that may have up to 30 students. My professors have been available to students during certain hours or through email, which is more convenient for me. In the nursing department, professors are so determined to help their students succeed and understand the material.

Overall Experience: Because my university is a Jesuit school, I believe the value of our degree is more than average because of the principles our education has been built upon.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel like Campus Safety does an exceptional job providing services for students in need. We have a shuttle that transports students from campus to Journal Square and it is a 24/7 service that provides safety to those students who need to be accompanied during late nights.

Athletics: There are many student athletes on campus, but sports aren't a huge part of campus life. However, student athletes still advertise their games and events to try to get other students involve. There are intramural sports and fitness classes that many people take part in.

Overall Experience: 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!

Health & Safety: Although our campus is centered in quite the sketchy area, as we are in Jersey City, campus safety has managed to improve their services greatly over the past couple of years. Just recently, we have had brand new call boxes installed all over campus, as the old ones were not working anymore. It is important that these call boxes were installed because although we are safe on campus, if one were to walk a couple blocks off campus, it is not completely safe. Crime rate on campus is very low, possibly nonexistent. We have an emergency email/text system that has been tested out by campus safety to make sure it is working properly. The upperclassmen dorms can be improved, however. I think it is important to learn about fire safety and to make sure each dorm has a fire extinguisher as well as a working fire alarm system (which some upperclassmen dorms lack).

Overall Experience: 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.

Overall Experience: I am aware that the alumni network is of great quality. Students are able to reach out to alumni through our school's various social networks. The value of a degree from this school is average, since our school is not quite an Ivy League. Jobs and internships are quite difficult to get on this campus, from my personal opinion, however.

Athletics: My school is a First Division University where basketball is the sport where students are the most involved. Baseball is next on the list of student involvement, and every other sport is important, but there are not as many students showing school spirit at tennis or swimming matches, for example. Our teams are very strong and full of talent, however. Our athletic facilities are slightly outdated, however my school is in the process of updating the recreation centers for the satisfaction of our students.

Overall Experience: My university is very diverse and not too big in size. I appreciate my school's size because there are more opportunities for one on one time with the professors, which allows students to learn more and do better in whichever courses they are struggling in. My school is unique because we are centered in the middle of Jersey City, NJ which is a huge melting pot in the midst of its gentrification process. We have students from all over the world, as well as students who live nearby and commute. My university is always looking for ways to improve for the satisfaction of the students, and to make a better name for our school which is something I appreciate. Progress is key, and Saint Peter's has definitely progressed enormously over the years. If I could do it all over, I would definitely choose Saint Peter's University over and over again. I am aware that life throws you punches sometimes, and nobody's life will ever be perfect. However, as a self analyzing person, I look back on my decisions, and not every choice I've made in life has been the right choice. Choosing this university as well as my major, and I realize that Saint Peter's was the best choice for me. I never wanted to attend a huge state university where I became just another name or number on the roster of 300 or more students in a class. As a 5 foot tall young woman, I never liked large crowds and I would not have appreciated the feeling of being lost in the midst of hundreds of people, just trying to make my way to class or the dining hall. At the small, yet welcoming community I have found here at Saint Peter's, I feel at home, and I have met special people who have changed my life in many ways for the better. Throughout the past 3 years, I have grown and matured more than I ever could have imagined, so if I had to start all over again, I would always choose Saint Peter's University.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Education is pretty good. I get to know the professors, and small class sizes. Great that it's right by the city. However, there is nothing to do if you live on campus, and sports aren't even a big deal. No school spirit.

Party Scene: Some nights is very fun
