3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has many talented professors and is a great fit for some students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The small campus and learning environment really helped me transition from small AP classes back in High School.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far it has been great. The teachers are very helpful and they want their students to succeed. There are different services that are offered on campus that will help a student succeed in class and that is really great and helpful.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Rigorous core curriculum, but great extracurriculars.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The process overall is very easy. You apply and they get back within a few weeks, but very limited amount of scholarships for a private school. I did not get the amount needed and still have lots to cover.

Campus Food: The cafeteria food is okay; there could be more options. It is also too expensive and cannot be used in the university bookstore.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The overall environment of the dorms is very comfortable and quiet. The rooms are spacious and pleasant and each has a private bathroom.

Off-Campus Housing: Montrose can be dangerous, but you can find good places in surrounding areas if you know how to look for them. Students should look into living in the heights or river oaks.

Off-Campus Dining: Houston is great! There are tons of interesting restaurants that serve the active foodie community here.

3 College Junior

Administration: It's pretty average- most students are not trouble makers. Security can take a long time to come unlock a building, which is strange since the campus is so small.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Considering my social standing, I got barely enough aid for me to come here. I had to fight for one scholarship though, but if you call everyday and keep communication, it's as easy and it is anywhere else. (financial aid is never easy).

2 College Junior

Party Scene: Parties do happen, but this is not a college to go to if your into major party life.

1 College Junior

Campus Food: The meal plan is so expensive and the food selection is very small. They have frozen food, but again very few choices in one small refrigerated shelf.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are only two resident halls, one being apartment style. The apartment style is for Juniors and Seniors but it is hard to get into because the hall holds under 100 people. The other dorms are a shared room with bathroom in suite and are nice for freshman, but the meal plan is $1500 per semester! This wouldn't be as bad if the dining hall situation was better. There is a subway, an itty bitty "convenience" section, and 3 food stalls to get food from- and I have gotten sick a few times from this. Also, the dining hall keeps strange hours. For this reason, I moved off campus.

Athletics: I personally am not a big fan of sports events, but sports are important to the school as a whole. The athletic facilities are average, but they are enough for me.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe walking alone on campus. However, I would not readily walk alone in the area surround the school campus, especially not at night. I have made a few trips to the nearby supermarket alone, but when possible, I go with other people and only in the morning or during the day.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I am in my second semester, so most of the classes I've taken are core requirement classes. However, I have taken one introductory course for the international studies major, but I am thinking of changing to another major because I am looking for something different.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's many good restaurants around my school, but not many offer student discounts.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are several merit-based scholarships to apply for, so good grades in high school will definitely help.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The course is very challenging

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Really nice restaurants all around campus area.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Small class sizes. Teachers are really helpful. Lots of areas for students to hang out and study.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The University of St. Thomas is not for everyone. It's not a party school with Greek life, thousands of students to meet, wild fans at huge sporting events, or Ivy League admissions standards. But for those who decide to attend UST, there are great opportunities to flourish here. The small community provides students a comfortable environment in a large city. Students are well prepared for careers, and many departments help students find internship, research, and networking opportunities to help better the chances of students landing a dream job. As a Catholic institution, there are convenient Mass times, and friendly priests and nuns who provide moral support for students, regardless of their religion. Catholic students can get involved with religious activities to deepen their faith and meet other people who share the same values.

There are so many ways to become a big fish in a small pond here, with students encouraged to become leaders on campus. The small population allows most students to become familiar faces. Even the shyest people make long-lasting friendships. The small classes also lead to close relationships between students and teachers. Plus, the president of the University can be seen regularly walking around campus, talking to students on a first-name basis. You can rest assured that you will not feel like a number here. Maybe you won’t leave UST with a ton of drunken nights you will never remember, but you will definitely leave with memories you will never forget.
