Student, as well as parents, should try finding the college that best fits their future academic plans & needs. Students should definitely not slack off their freshmen year, but make the most of it, so they set a good foundation for the next few years. Students really need to remain intact and hardworking with their school work to obtain a good gpa and graduate successfully. They need to try their best not to get distracted by other social activites that happen during a students college life.
The classmates I have encountered at UST today alone have impressed me with two general ideas: the first is that UST students are an extremely diverse group, and they all embrace that. I see people from all walks of life eating and talking together but also learning alongside each other. The second idea I have picked up is that these students are a bit immature sometimes - by this, I mean that when an outsider (such as myself, for I am a transfer/commuter student) comes in, they are wary. I received assurances this will change, however, so I am hopeful.
The worst thing about this school is the cost, since it's a private school. However, financial aid does help & the experience is worth it.
University of St. Thomas is a presitigous school that has a fun filled environment and various opportunites for academic success.
This school is primarily a commuter school which is a unique experience for a non-commuter like myself. With a student body of around 3000 I am able to have diversity within my classes and meet lots of new people, but after class hours I am part of a much smaller community of students who live on campus. The on-campus living arrangements allow for great community life, and I live with all of my closest friends.
The best thing about the University of St. Thomas is the education. Being a Catholic liberal arts school, you are required to take Theology and Philosophy classes in addition to a vast core. Some may think that many of the classes they take will have nothing to do with your major, but you get insight into so many different disciplines, which allows you to think and analyze more critically. Not only that, but regardless of your beliefs the classes help you to learn more about yourself which is the key to success after college.
My school is best known for its premed program and its international studies.
Students that want a well rounded liberal arts education and who want to see how there is a connection between faith and knowledge.
People who aren't tolerant of other cultures, opinions, or beliefs or academically focused shouldn't attend this school.
It is very academically forward, the teachers are focused on the students best interests, and the classes are small. students get the best help when they need it, because the teachers are so close to the students. the campus is small, and the people are very friendly.
I transferred in so if I had known about the extra core I would have had tpo taken and the degree structure I wouls have stayed at San Jacinto Community College South get my associates then transfer
So far I do not see anything that can be a frustration for me while I am here.
Can be tough but as long as you work hard, pay attention in class, and ask your professor for help, you should be fine. As long as you have a good professor who is fair and is willing to help you learn.
Any sports team.
The University of St. Thomas is my paradise. From playing football, to participating in psychology seminars this school has and will continue to provide me with everything i need to have a successful and enjoyable career.
Students that go here are usually seen as "wealthy". From my experience, I have met a wide variety of people from different backgrounds. The students are driven to work their hardest and have great goals; I have never had a problem with anyone on campus.
