University of St Thomas-Saint Paul Top Questions

What's unique about your campus?

Sarah

The atmosphere in general is my favorite thing about UST. St. Thomas is an absolutely gorgeous school that offers so much to its students, and it is somewhere I truly enjoy being. We are located in the heart of St. Paul, but it feels like we belong in a community. Professors and classes are engaging; students are fun, different, and hard-working. I believe all of these things create a college atmosphere I can't inhale enough of.

Lily

Regardless if the students have school spirit, the school tends to exemplify its own school spirit and pride. Teachers, if you get a good one, are passionat about what they're teaching and instil inspiration or curiousity in learning. That's cool.

Laura

The greatest service The University of St. Thomas offers students, is the opprotunity to develop a lifelong relationship with their professors. Every professor I have had there, regardless of their area of expertise or how engaging their courses were, cares deeply about their students. Having talked with upperclassmen and Tommie alumni, I know that it is a normal occurance to stay in contact with professors long after the course has ended. I know without a doubt that I will stay in touch with several of my professors. They go above and beyond and truly care about their student's lives.

Vong

One of my favorite things about University of St. Thomas is the small class room size. It allows me to have the most attention from my professors. I also get to know classmates much easier. Last but not least, professors get to know you better and quicker because there are so few students in the class room.

St Thomas has small class sizes and professors who really are about the students. You feel like you belong here and you're not just a face in a crowd.

What I enjoy most about St. Thomas is the sense of community not only with my fellow classmates, but also within the surrounding neighborhoods. It's easy to feel the communities presence by walking around the streets surrounding the campus. The fact that we are a smaller school, allows for effortless friendships in and out of the classroom that makes St. Thomas feel like a second home to a lot of us.

Therese

The University of St Thomas is an amazing school because of the location and what the school has to offer. I love the perfect location; in the middle of St Paul. The campus is five minutes from downtown St Paul and also five minutes from downtown Minneapolis! I, also, love what the school has to offer. This size is perfect, a little over 5,000 undergraduate students. The size allows for great relationships between professors and their students.

Lauren

I think the best thing about the school is how helpful the staff and faculty are. I think this comes from the small size of the school. My biggest class is only 25 people; my professors are readily available and ready to help. There are also a variety of academic and religious services that really are just an email away. At UST, I can get an email from someone in a few hours. At a bigger school I wouldn't even know who to contact. Here, I am not just a number.

Michael

I think that the best part about my school is the professors. They are very knowledgeable on the subjects in which they teach, and they also have out of class hours to help us when we fall behind.

The faculty and staff make an effort to get to know you and it is easy to get to know other students. You are challenged and learning everyday, while still having an enjoyable time.

Sophia

At St Thomas, staff and faculty genuinely care about the success of their students, and they show it. Every one of my professors promises to check his/her e-mail at least once a day(even on weekends), just in case a student has a question. As the first person in my family going to college, my parents and I were a little lost at first. We made countless calls and asked countless questions to almost every department on campus for weeks, and every person we talked to was more than willing to help and to be friendly about it.

Everywhere you go on campus has breath-taking architecture or natural beauty. Off-campus, St. Thomas is placed right on historic Summit Avenue, which has some of the most beautiful victorian houses in the world!

school spirtit, emphasis on learning and research because more hands on activities prepare you for what youre actual worklife will be like and gives you a more realistic view on what to expect

Its size. It is big enough, but it is also small enough that you get a lot of personal attention and a lot of bang for your buck in terms of free services. Also, there are so many on-campus jobs available, it is really easy to get one!

LaChelle

I am very pleased with my choice of coming to St. Thomas University in St. Paul Minnesota for numerous reasons. To narrow my list down and choice the best aspect of my school is difficult but I would have to say the student body here and resources available. For example almost every student no matter the age or race is more than happy to help you when in need or provide information to younger students. The resources around the city and through the University are impecable; including the public safety, library workers, professors, residence staff, bus company, catering services, etc.

Joshua

St. Thomas is the best school at offering their students the opportunity to have the wonderful, personal experience of knowing everyone while at the same time being a big enough school to give the full college experience. With Hamline, St. Kate's, U of M, Macalester, Concordia- St. Paul within a couple miles, the college atmosphere is a presence and taken pride in. Every day I walk through campus with a pride and passion that is, as I now see, a commonality among every Tommie here. UST is a great place to be, but an even greater place to grow.

Stacey

The best thing about my school is the sense of community. The community built around St. Thomas focuses on the dignity of each human person and many of the organizations across the campus cater to this dignity. It is a great school to become actively involved in faith, learning, and relationships with others.

Matthew

The community that is present in the University of Saint Thomas is the best thing about it. I know that no matter what I need help with, there is a professor, advisor, college employee, or another student who can help me with it and would gladly like to help me with it.

Nicole

I think the best thing about St. Thomas is the overwhelming feeling of community in a faith life. Growing up in a public school, pursuing a relationship with God was not necessarily encouraged, and I think that hindered my abilities when it came to living out a Christian faith. However, St. Thomas really provides so many ways and opportunities for students to develop and pursue a faith life whether it be through different groups or clubs or even a job through campus ministry like myself. Having something such as faith in common as a University is such a blessing.

Erika

St. Thomas has wonderful clubs that students can get involved with. Besides an excellent academic program, St. Thomas offers students the chance to get involved with just about anything imaginable on campus. Students also have the opportunity to start their own clubs if they feel like St. Thomas is missing something.

SHIRLY

The best thing about the University of St. Thomas is the welcoming advisors and dedicated professors.

Emily

I would consider the study abroad and vision the best thing at St. Thomas. The study abroad program is one of the best in Minnesota. Also, it does not cost much more than a regular semester at St.Thomas, and you can study abroad more than one time. The study abroad program was the biggest reason why I chose to attend the University of St. Thomas.

Connor

The business school hands down. There are countless math, science, economics, ethics, and other business oriented courses. They are all willing to stay late into the day if it means helping a student better understand the material. I have had several opportunities to sit down and speak with several of by business professors and discuss with them the best possible route through St. Thomas in order to gain the right knowledge for the field I am in. Which is Marketing by the way.
