I feel like I wasted a year of my life and a year of my money. Everyone leaves on the weekends, the campus is empty, and they tell you they "have events" for the kids that stay on campus over the weekends, but thats just another lie. And after one year going here I know numerous kids who are transferring, and that says A LOT about the school. Its all Minnesota kids who went to high school together and peaked, so if thats the school you want this is perfect for you... but if you want a real college experience definitely not the school for you.

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!

Thomas. the social life is essentially like a high school with different clicks. Many of the girls are jersey chasers. The campus has a public safety police force on campus that creates many problems for the students. Over the last few years partying has become non existent due to the school pouring money at the St. Paul police in an effort to control the area around campus. The off campus housing is in an area where many families live so if you have a party expect the police to arrive with a noise complaint. Because the students can't hang out with their friends at house party's they are forced to go to the bars, usually Tiff's, this bar is the most disgusting place I have ever seen. They allow underages in with very poor fake id's. but the scene at the bar is just a bunch of immature sloppy drunk underagers Wed, 01 May 2013 03:04:31 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/MN/UST_comments.html
