The Education program is by far the best of any of the schools I visited throughout the MidWest. The accessibility to have a close relationship with professors is one of the main highlights of this program. Using their experiences and integrating them throughout their teaching is extremely beneficial when planning and implementing lessons throughout the Brown County area.

The workload is heavy but manageable if you are dedicated. Invest in a planner because as an Edu major you will be here there and everywhere. I chose SNC because I was going to be in the classroom and gaining valuable experiences as a FRESHMAN! As a Sophomore I was in the classroom for five weeks and the majority of that time was spent teaching lessons that I had designed as well as mandated curriculum.

There are a few internships that are specifically designed for Edu majors, however, with the amount of field experience one receives throughout their experience at Norbs would impress any future employer. The Green Bay School system is always looking for new teachers and any school in Wisconsin puts St. Norbert Alum applications on the top of the pile.

The campus is pretty small, so everywhere you go, it is either filled, or empty because people decided to go off campus. But, aside from that, the restrooms are clean. Honestly, I hate using public bathrooms, but these bathrooms are actually pretty nice. I wouldn't say the same for dorm bathrooms. Coming from personal experience, the girls restroom in Sensenbrenner was not all that pleasing... For athletic centers, the gym in the campus center is really nice, but there are people in there 24/7. The workout room is always filled around 8 am, so my workouts consist of running around town. I LOVE the library. If I could live in a place, it would be the library's basement or third floor reflection lounge. The campus events are always fun! I wish they would never end sometimes. The MCC (Multicultural Center) is one of my favorite places to hangout, especially if you're a part of STAR, it's where you build relationships that'll last forever. And another place off campus is Luna Cafe. Great place that is.

Living at St. Norbert is actually quite wonderful. I made my best friends in my current Residence Hall and my RA's have been amazing. I currently live in Sensenbrenner and I really enjoyed it. At first I was hesitant because it is an all female dorm, but I was proven wrong. Living in Sensenbrenner is amazing. The girls are friendly and I expected lots of drama and chaos but it has been very easy living in Sensenbrenner. The lounge in the basement just got re done and the kitchen is beautiful! The housing process for applying for the freshman dorms was easy. However this year they re did the system for the sophomores and upperclassmen and it is a little confusing, but if you put in an effort to learn how to properly apply you will be fine.
