Saint Norbert College Top Questions

What are the academics like at your school?

Chris

The benefits of being at a smaller college are the smaller class sizes and my professors know my name. All students have an advisers to help them through registering for classes and making sure they are doing well not only in class, but with roommates and adjusting to college too. My adviser is also one of my communications professors and very easy to talk to. As a communications major, I would like more professors. Our three largest areas of study are communications, business and education. The business and education departments have three times as many professors, which makes it harder to get into the classes I need. As a liberal arts college though, students are required to take general studies classes outside of their major and/or minor, including philosophy and a religious studies class. So definitely come in with college or AP credit if you want to pick your classes before everyone else. The library and the campus center (a place where students hang out) are two favorite places to study on campus, otherwise there are study rooms available. You’ll see a lot of people with books on Sundays and generally throughout the week. My favorite classes are typically my communications classes, but I also really enjoyed my middle eastern history class and introduction to the bible. The professor really makes the class and once you’re on campus you’ll be advised to take this professor and this professor. Get to know the students who have been here for awhile, they will let you know which classes to take and with whom. And if you want to try something different, I recommend any of the art classes.
