Student Sound Offs
"The thing I like best about the education offered by my university is that they challenge us to think for ourselves and solve problems on our own."
"St. Thomas University does not only teach material, but it does so in a way that encourages its students to question the world around them and the information given to them. It does what its slogan claims: teaches students to 'think for themselves.'"
"I enjoy the total immersion in liberal arts. Though I myself have had negative experiences, there is, by and large, a very dedicated and earnest faculty here at STU."
"The classes are small, the most allowed in a class is 60 and average class size is around 30. It makes it easier to speak up in classes when they are smaller, and it's easier to get personal attention and help."
"I dislike the fact that you have to take so many required courses, because it makes your education seem more like high school, because you have to take certain subjects that are in no way related to your degree."
"The campus WiFi system could be stronger in each of the buildings. In the majority the signal can be lost or can be unattainable.""I love that everyone seems very accepting of everyone else on campus, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or religion."
"I like the aesthetic look of the university. It may be a small campus but the grounds are always in superb condition and decorative lights are placed about the courtyard, making the university look pleasant."
"The school spirit could definitely be improved. For people who aren't involved in sports (like me) or the student union, there isn't much school spirit."
"The Great Ideas program is excellent. It offers interdisciplinary teachings on political science, philosophy, psychology, and sociology."
"This is not a very good campus for students or faculty with physical disabilities."
