I love attending the University of Saint Joseph. I would recommend the school to any High School Freshman unsure of where they would like to go. The university is so diverse and so involved of outside news. We support every and anyone in our community. Our University is definitely not the biggest but there is so much to do outside of the campus. Less than 10 min away is blue Back square and west farm mall.


The University of Saint Joseph has already taught me so much about life. I am definitely the odd one out, many of my friends went to colleges that were less focused on academics and more on partying but I am so glad that I chose this beautiful little school.


University of Saint Joseph is a great school for someone entering the field of healthcare such as Nursing. Based on the reviews from my counselors, peers who are students and visit, I strongly believe that the school will provide me with the necessary skills to have a successful career. With smaller class size and it considered to be one of the best Nursing programs in Connecticut, University of Saint Joseph is to me, a wise investment.


It's nice if you are looking for a quiet, calm experience. It is neatly tucked away in a small area filled with a lot of green. Class sizes are small so the professors know your name and you get a lot more help, at the expense of more diversity in culture.
