4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of activities and clubs for students to go to on campus, and I think having a good college experience is important. When a student is able to be involved in activities and clubs, they have the opportunity to make friends and also to network and be better communicators and to be more involved in the community. At St. Thomas, we want to make our community a better place, and to be involved in clubs, you're required to do community service for the betterment of the community around us. I think it says a lot about the school and it's commitment to making the area a better place to live.

Overall Experience: Overall, I have not been satisfied with this school. Sure, the teachers are mostly good, and I'm mostly there for my education, but holy crap, the students and most other things are just awful. The students here are people who were slightly above average and the popular kids in high school. They have never had to struggle financially or emotionally, and don't care about those who do. Catholicism is a much larger thing on campus than I thought it was going to be. The Catholics have an enormous holier-than-thou attitude and look down on you if you are not one of them.

Overall Experience: The education is amazing, and I'm really confident that I'll get a good job right out of college. The classes are difficult and very time consuming, though.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't started the school year yet but I did have orientation! It was a great experience and everyone on campus made me feel welcome and excited for the school year!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Your first year at any school is tough because you're learning how to live on your own and you have to start taking steps toward becoming an independent adult. My first year was extremely tough because it took me a long time to adapt to college life. But after 2 years at UST I love my school. The people at my school have supported me in every way -- with my academics, sports, and social life. I have made so many connections in and outside of my field thanks to the dedicated counsellors and other staff at UST. If I could do it all over again I would choose UST every time.

Overall Experience: From the moment I walked on to campus I felt very welcome. Everyone is very nice and willing to help with any questions you express. Its also a great school for many majors, interests, and its in a great location. I've received so much personal attention and feel very confident about my future.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had a fun experience at the University of St. Thomas. The students and professors that I have met are great.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of St. Thomas is a great school. I knew that it was for me the second I stepped onto campus inside of the Anderson Student Center (ASC). The students and staff here are incredibly friendly. At my university you have the feeling of being able to walk up to any other person on campus and start a conversation with them. It is a very safe environment and a very prestigious school.

Off-Campus Housing: UST has an off-campus housing department and website that helps students find nearby housing easily. They also provide sessions to teach students about renting. There's lots of available houses nearby campus but prices are high, which is expected in the cities.

Party Scene: Not a whole lot of nearby bars, and i often hear stories of people not getting in. House parties are pretty common and nearby.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Obviously there's a lot of places to eat off-campus because UST is so near the city. Lots of really cool, decently priced places on Grand Ave

3 College Freshman

Administration: Pub safe is known for being quite rude to students. I have not been mistreated by them because I haven't really interacted with them but I see this happening. However, they also are usually pretty understanding if you do not disrespect them.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Merit-based aid is quite easy to get and UST awards quite a bit of it if you put time and effort into your scholarship. There are many other scholarships that UST posts monthly on their website. Need-based aid was not awarded to me even though I feel that I deserved at least a bit of it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is great and there is always some place that is open. However, on the weekends, the food quality in The View goes way downhill because there is never very much food there. I like that there is Flex and meal swipes separately but the low amount of Flex for a freshman plan is annoying when I just want a snack but don't want the View.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are larger than most and are very comfortable. They are kept clean and the RA's are friendly. We have free events with free things all the time and I enjoy the residential area very much. The social life is average, you're most likely to find a group of people you can relate to within the dorms. The cost is so high though, much higher than the cost of nearby apartments or houses.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Depending on the distance and which neighborhood you choose to live in costs can very. Choosing housing off of campus is something that you must do on your own.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Depending on which style of dining you choose cost will typically stay in a range that a college student can pay for. There is lots of variety going from ethnic and small run restaurants to chains.

3 College Freshman

Administration: If there is underage drinking and you are being very loud you will most likely be busted. If underage drinking is taking place and you keep to yourself then nothing will happen.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It is never a very easy process but admissions worked with me to figure things out.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Variety of meals is fantastic except during the weekend where options are limited

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere on campus is truly fantastic. There are always things to do around campus!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Super close, prices are very reasonable depending on what you want.

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing is that close, and it's all burgers, noodles and pizza.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: UST admin is very helpful

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Obviously, it's no food from home, but it's good!
