This University has absolutely no reputation within the business world. Good luck getting a real job with a degree from this institution. Career services is an absolute disgrace.

Well, UST is Not for everyone!Quite Bright
Well, UST is Not for everyone! Note that the core curriculum (required of all students) includes 21 hours--with a price tag of about $17,500.00--for philosophy and theology courses that are focused on ultra orthodox Catholic ideology--think Rick Santorium--and you would be getting it right. If this is what you want--go for it! UST is for you. But if you want a more balanced approach in your education--then try St.Edwards in Austin or St. Marys in San Antonio. I will be trying one of them in the Fall. . .

Question
Yeah, I thought UST looked "charming" and soBrightPolitical Science
Yeah, I thought UST looked "charming" and so I went there for two years. What a mistake!
Don't believe UST progaganda; this school looks "charming" from the outside but on the inside, it is a miserable expereince. Students transfer away as soon as they can. Currently all the adminstration can talk about is how they train "leaders of faith and character." By "faith" they mean conservative Catholic. Don't even consider coming here unless you think birth control, sex, gay marriage etc. are mortal sins. Rick Santorum was a recent campus speaker. No Democrats or liberals are allowed to speak.

As for "character," aapparently the administrators don't know that the students reuse old philosophy and theology papers, and cheat right and left. The school must be financially strapped; nothing ever works and students pay high prices for EVERYTHING. BTW, UST can't tolerate any criticism whatever, so I suspect that many of the positive reviews on this site were probably written by the marketing department. You have been warned.
