St Catherine University Top Questions

What's unique about your campus?


During my first week at St Catherine University, I got the chance to learn about the history and mission of St Catherine University, which I really enjoyed , because most colleges don’t take the time to indulge the students about its rich history. And I believe it’s important because I had to know what defined me as a Katie. Through out the semester I came to know that St Catherine is a loving community that allows open discussion and focuses around social justice issues .It is diverse and academically challenging school which that makes me a proud Katie


The best thing about my school is the people and the professors. The professors are well informed, very active, and open minded. All my professors have encouraged me to be the best person I can be. They encourage me to speak my mind and to fight for the things I believe in. The students are equally encouraging and I learned so much from my classmates, and vice versa. It is a healthy environment to learn and interact with people. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in pursuing a 4 year degree.


The best thing about my school is that I can always find a friendly face and someone to talk to just by walking through the campus, there's no tension between any of my peers and there's no need to be afraid of asking a random person a question about school or something. Also, there's never a dull moment on campus, there's always activities and sporting events going on!


the best thing about st. kates are the people there. Everyone is so friendly here. All of my professors knew me by my first name within the first week, i am a shy person so that normally doesn't happen. It was also very easy for me to make friends there. Everyone was so nice that it was easy to strike up a conversation with anyone. Within the first week i felt very confortable in my new home.


The best thing about my school is the sense of community and family between all students. St. Catherine is a small school but all students feel welcomed by peers, professors, and faculty. There is a very strong sense of community and unity between everyone that is a part of the St. Kate's community.


My favorite part about St. Kates and one of the reasons i chose it was because of the small class sizes. My biggest class is my anatomy lecture and that is only about 25-35 people. It's very nice for discussion based classes because people generally feel better about sharing their opinion with a smaller group but there is no pressure to say anything.


The atmosphere, everyone is very friendly and accepting, especially the professors and staff. There is plenty of room to grow and change into the person you want to be. Everyone is very supportive too. The orientation was amazing also.


Honestly, the best aspect about CSC is the faculty and the administration. They're always willing and able to find the answers to questions that come up in college life.


Helpful when needed.


I was thinking about going to this college my freshman year. My thought was i dont want to be with girls all the time but, once i got here i wished i would have been there sooner. they have a out line to graduate in time with your major, the classes are small and the teachers have time to listen to your questions and care about how your doing. The confort level is great becasue being all young females there is no male destraction.


The people are great, students and staff. Small class sizes and great nursing program!


Everything about my school is the best...But the best would have to be the school environment on campus, it makes kearning so much easier and helps students succeed a lot better...


That it is an all girls small school that focus a lot on four year program.


It is great not feeling awkward with different mindsets between men and women, here we are all women and can understand each other more easily.


I really like how small the class sizes are. I come from a rather large high school where all the classes are about 30kids, and then to a community college where the class sizes were the same and some larger. But at here they are alot smaller, therefore you get a lot more out of the class. The teachers can pay more attention to you and answering your questions and it makes it easier to get to know your classmates, which comes in handy for the more difficult classes. I also like how available the teachers make themselves.


All of the people, Staff, Professors, Students, Parents, and Alumni are all absolutly wonderful and excellent resources.




It's the perfect size. It's not huge, but it's bigger than some colleges. Also, the staff seem to really care about students and are aware that students have other classes besides just theirs. Most also have really flexible office hours and try to be there for a student when she needs help.


This school hosts students from all walks of life, whether they live on or off campus, are traditional or non-traditional students. They go out of their way to make everyone feel accepted.


The discussion-based classes and the interaction between professors and students is a highlight of the school.
