Saint Norbert College Top Questions

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chris

I think the best thing about St. Norbert is its size. I grew up in a smaller town and was looking for a smaller college. Some students do think it’s too small, especially if they’re from Milwaukee or Chicago. It could be because De Pere really isn’t a college town, despite how many bars there are. Most students are not a fan of the four year on-campus residency requirement and housing has been a big issue due to this requirement. Seniors especially do not like it because they feel it does not prepare them for life after college. The caf food is also not the best, but they do have their good days. SNC administration really tries to keep student involvement high. We have a student-run government and residence hall representatives to handle any comments or complaints students may have. When I tell people I go to St. Norberts, I get one of two reactions: ‘wow, that’s a tough school’ or ‘big partier, hey?’ The fact is we study hard and we still get to have fun. What I love about SNC is the gorgeous campus. It’s right on the Fox River and even though it’s the punch line of most jokes here on campus (you might grow a third arm if you swim in it), I love to sit on the docks when the weather is nice to do homework or just hang out with friends. You can even watch the water ski club go by as they do tricks up and down the river. It’s mostly the student athletes who have SNC pride, especially the hockey and football teams, but the community also carries a lot of SNC pride. Our local church, Old St. Joe’s, is located right on campus and everyone there takes a lot or pride in being part of the college. They love student involvement of any kind. Some professors also attend mass and quite a few of the Norbertine priests are professors or hold administrative positions on campus. If you want to get involved, SNC is the right place to be.
