I have loved Saint Ambrose since I stepped on campus for my visit. I am even more in love since I've been a student here for a year now. The campus is not only beautiful but it is also safe and very student friendly. The people on campus are amazing and the staff makes it known that the students matter. The athletic programs on campus are also some of the best in the NAIA, and I know that these athletes are seen as students 1st and then athlete.
Overall the school is an amazing place to be.
This is a great university for small-school lovers like myself! Great academic community and a close-knit campus. Students and faculty are very friendly and helpful.
Overall, St. Ambrose is a great school
The professors are really caring and want to see the students succeed in the classroom, and also out in the real world. They are willing to help out no matter what and willing to make time for the student, just don't be afraid to ask for the help.
On campus life, is wonderful. Everywhere you go, there is probably someone you know from classes, teams, or friend groups. A variety of different extracurricular activities are also offered, giving everyone a chance to fully experience the college life.
Overall, SAU is a great place to attend school. The professors are really care about how their students are learning and if they need help along the way. There are plenty of opportunities to get help whether that be with the professor, or with the writing lab, SI meetings, or a tutor. Not only are the academics a priority, but extracurriculars like sports and club involvements are encouraged! SAU is a great school that will give any student great opportunities when the work is put in.

Saint Ambrose is a very professional liberal arts University that offers a well-rounded education for all of those who attend.
I would say the worst thing about my school is the surrounding area. It isnt the nicest place in the world. It has alot of crime problems. The neighborhoods are real ghetto and worn . Gang related activity is taking place around the campus but never on it.
I brag about the dorms that St. Ambrose University has, because they are the best I have seen for freshman. My dorm is newly built, carpeted, large, air-conditioned, and suite-style (4 people share a bathroom that is cleaned weekly).
My classmates are very helfpful and open to creative ideas.
The quality of the dorm life at St. Ambrose is very unique of any other schools I considered. Ambrose has very high quality dorms and other living areas. All dorms are suite style so you don't have to share a bathroom with more than 5 other people. They also have a lot of on-campus houses to give students real-life feel while still not paying extra rent. All of the housing is very well kept and nice, comfortable amounts of space.
I love that St. Ambrose University offers many diverse classes and opportunities and yet it retains the one-on-one attention and focus of a smaller school. I love that my professors know my name and that I can interact with my peers and fellow classmates throughout the semester. St. Ambrose is really great about giving opportunities to students without limiting them. I am able to choose from many classes and explose the areas that interest me the most. I love the freedom of this school.
The cost of tuition is pretty high. The school offers so many scholarships and grants for those living on campus but there is very little available for off campus students. Another downside of being an off campus student at St. Ambrose is the lack of parking available, even with the purchase of a parking sticker.
I believe that everyone should have a chance to further their education. You never really know someone's personality until you actually interact with them and then sometimes interaction doesn't show someone's true character.
This school is awesome. It's very small and intimate, and I love it. Campus is not too big which means I can wake up fifteen minutes before class starts and get to the room with plenty of time to spare.
