I cannot say enough about the amazing education I received for my undergraduate degree at The College of Saint Scholastica. As an aspiring healthcare worker, this was the perfect location to do my schooling. I felt well prepared moving onto graduate studies and while working at Essentia Health as well. Class sizes are smaller, but the professors are incredible and very knowledgable. Food options are getting better as time goes on as well.
The College of Saint Scholastica is an amazing college! As a non-traditional student that takes classes off campus, the college does things to make sure I know what is going on. There are emails often and my adviser Renee keeps in touch to make sure things are going well in my program.
I am thankful for the opportunity to obtain my masters degree in a convenient location. I have classes every Thursday night in Hibbing, MN. The instructors are wonderful and really listen to our feedback and tailor the class to our needs. If they do not have an answer, they get answers usually within 24 hours.
I am looking forward to the next 12 months of classes and finishing up my degree. My future is bright and I have St. Scholastica and the awesome staff to thank.
This college so far has helped me grow so much in the short time that I have been here. Everyone is so outgoing and helpful and so are the teachers as well. Everyone gets to know each other as this is a smaller school but it feels more like home. I love it here!
CSS is an overall great school. Everyone is very welcoming and the campus is gorgeous. The academics are impressive and the professors are always available and want to help you. It has its downfalls, like not have a really extensive list of extracurricular activities or fantastic food in the dining hall, but it is a smaller school, so that is to be expected. Overall, CSS is a fantastic community to be a part of.

What I have received out of my college experience consists of three main ideas: time management, knowledge, and maturity. I have learned the importance of time management during my first year in college. Time management is extremely important because at college you live with your friends. So your friends are just a knock away. I learned it is important to manage your time accordingly which means not hanging out with friends all the time. Instead, study first and friends hang out with friends second. Knowledge is the second aspect college has given me. I have learned a vast amount of knowledge that I will carry with me into my future which then will lead into my career. College forces maturity upon you whether you are ready for it or not. If I were not to have matured during my freshman year, I would not have the GPA I attain now. At college, I matured a lot, and I began to make decisions for myself. Following the crowd, in college, is not always the best decision. If I would not have gone to college, I would have never gained time management, knowledge, and maturity.
This school is student friendly.
The boy to girl ratio which is about 1:3.
Someone looking for a big school with large classes should probably not look here. Classes are generally small, and it is a very small campus area.
Small Class Sizes. Able to get more attention
When I completed this program, it was an accelerated program at a satellite campus; my suggestion to future students is to ensure you have the time and dedication to complete an accelerated program.
The most frustrating thing as a freshman is not having an adivsor in your major. When trying to pick classes, the only person you have to go to is your Dignitas professor, who is not trained in helping students choose classes and who may not be involved in your major at all.
how closed minded the people both at this school and the town are. And the weather sucks, fog, rain snow.......... Rarly sun
I brag about my apartment on campus; it is really nice. I also like to talk about the small class sizes here and each teacher knows you on a first name basis. It is really easy to contact your professors and set up times to meet with them if you. There is a writing and tutoring center on here campus that are great resources if you are looking to do the best in your classes. The library is very nice; it is quiet and there are many places to study. Every dorm/apartment building also has their own study rooms.
Career-focused, driven, friendly.
The College of St. Scholastica is known for its small size, medical emphasis, Benedictine tradition, and sense of community with each student.
My school has a cemetary for the sisters behind the building. Also, the teachers are very involved in the student learning and understanding process.
I guess the stereotype for CSS student is that we are all very religious being a private catholic college. But that is not the case, there are a lot of students that don't go to mass every week and I am one of those people. We don't have mandatory mass times or a mandatory bible minor. We do have core values, But they are more life values that make the people at CSS better people.
