I love St. Thomas.Quite BrightPsychology
I love St. Thomas. I am a senior Psychology major living off campus. The larger student body is clique-y and full of rich white kids, but I have found more than one oasis of friendly, down-to-earth people (easier to find in the psyc department, perhaps). I don't know much about what it is like to be an international student or a minority at UST, so I can't speak to that. However, I found my experience to be stimulating and welcoming. The professors at UST are concerned with helping you learn. Philosophy and Theology classes are required, but they are not meant to drill specific ideas into your head; they have helped me instead to think critically about my life and beliefs and be able to look at information intelligently rather than to merely consume. You will not find many easy classes at St. Thomas, but as a person who came to college to learn, I am fully appreciative of that fact. The psychology department, where I spend most of my time, is phenomenal. Professors are excited to include you in research, they are encouraging and challenging, and they want to see you learn. You can tell they want to invest in you, and if you let them, you can learn so much. It's not just a program, it's a community down there in the bottom floor of JRC. I live in the cities, and don't spend much of my social life on campus, but I love that area of St. Paul, and Minneapolis (my very favorite city) is right next door. If you decide to go to UST, go to Kopplin's on Marshall Ave. It's the best coffee around!

Question
I don't know whatQuite Bright
I don't know what people are saying about not getting a scholarship. I was offered two: one was a full academic scholarship. I couldn't be happier going to UST. Besides this, they are taking all my CITS credits.

Question
From a science standpoint, St.Quite BrightBiology
From a science standpoint, St. Thomas is a great school. There are many opportunities for undergraduate research that I feel are much more difficult to come by at larger research universities that are grad student based. The Biology department is also very well staffed and has some outstanding professors that care about your progress. As far as campus life goes, it is not as bad as many people say. It is located in St. Paul and there are a lot of small restaurants and bars within a few miles (might be a stretch to walk), and not everyone leaves on weekends. The people are generally very nice, and making friends was never an issue, but it can be annoying dealing with some of the trust fund kids. Overall, I had a very positive experience and I highly recommend St. Thomas.
