"The undergraduate program and living on campus is fantastic. Professors are great, you are encouraged to stay active and involved, and there is a huge focus on leadership development. However, I began my master's course online and seeing how I am a happy alumni from here I figured it'd be a good program. It is absolutely horrendous. This experience was not at all what I got from my undergrad. The professors are complete bigots who think they are God and treat you like a peasant although you are already educated and in the working field. The only thing they care about in the MBA program is how well you can write in APA format. They give zero feedback on the actual content itself and just ridicule your writing skills. I was horribly disappointed and had to transfer out. Do not take the Master's online program at this school. Undergrad was great."

"Some of the classes were OK but some of them are really bad and need updating. The marketing class should be scrapped. It was by far the worst class I have ever taken. It is also group based and we had one member that could not even write in complete sentences. So it seems you can just pay for a degree and not apply yourself. The teachers are just facilitating and most don't add any value to the class each term other than babysitting. Resources are not available. Totally different experience than the University of Florida for my bachelors where I received an education."

"I attended the Tallahassee campus of Saint Leo University and was very pleased with the level of attention and quality of education I received. This school is geared toward helping working individuals obtain their degrees. I was overwhelmingly satisfied with the amount of personalized attention and care I received from admin and teachers."

"Pros: The academic program here is great. It just needs a few improvements. If you're a student who cares less about partying, then this school is right for you. Cons: The staff on campus is rude and unprofessional. - Contrary to what your admission's counselor told you, once you attend SLU, you'll get little to no support. If you're not in a certain organization/club or even of a certain status around campus, you aren't treated as fairly. - Most professors are biased, and your grades might be affected because of it. - The school is in the middle of nowhere. - The food in the cafeteria sucks (there's a lot of complaints regarding food poisoning). Don't even think of going to the cafeteria on weekends because they literally serve left-over food given from the start of the week or from the week prior. - The school is very money hungry and you'll get charged for anything. - Your tuition basically pays for unnecessary things around campus such as fake trees/ plants and other irrelevant things since the school cares more about "school spirit" rather than what the school should actually be about. Warning!! If you're planning on attending Saint Leo University, please note that they put on a facade just to get your money. Once you attend here it's a different story than what was told when applying."

"Saint Leo University provided an opportunity that allowed me to complete my degree while still doing work in the US Navy. The ability to be flexible was the biggest priority when I was choosing a college to attend. The program of Business Management providing an initial insight in Management and learning the basic and some intermediate learning that can be applied into the workplace. When the program is selected, each student gets an advisor assigned to them that helps to answer any questions. Even if it is four years later, the advisor continues to contact you on your next semester of any courses you are interested in, questions on financial aid, records or general questions you may have. My advisor was very proactive and if there were any questions I had, I would receive a prompt answer to them. Financial aid office would always answer my questions in its entirety. I was never on hold any longer than 5 minutes in talking to a financial aid representative. There is an option to submit the question by email and I would typically get a response within 24-48 hours of submission. Professors in my courses were very knowledgeable in the subject areas they were teaching. Many provided hours that they can be reached or email addresses. Website interaction improved greatly the last few years. Just recently they upgraded the portal for social interaction between other students of the school and where courses are located. Accessibility is very important and understanding how to get to an area of the website and it is very easy to maneuver throughout the website."

"Saint Leo was amazing to say the least. I'm astonished at how many negative reviews that this school has because it was the best school I attended by far. I decided to transfer to this school after first getting my associates from a local community college, as well as attending another 4yr University. This school was the best decision I could have made for myself, my only regret is not starting here. All my teachers were great and they all went above and beyond to help me succeed. As a veteran, I never had any issues with the school and my GI bill, or registering for classes and financial aid was always available for me if I needed. I loved the small class room size where we could have class discussions and ask questions about the topics being taught. This is a really great school and like with any degree program you get out of it what you put in it. I highly recommend this school especially if you are looking for a non traditional way to get your degree, one that is flexible for those who do not have the ability to attend a traditional institution but want a quality education."

"Attended blended classes in Virginia Beach. My Algebra professor noticed I missed my evening classes due to lack of child care and allowed me to bring my two daughters to school. She even gave them paper and markers to keep them busy during quizzes and tests. Granted my children were quiet and never distracted other students, but I still will never forget that. Other professors were more strict but understood that as a dual military family I had no support in the state."

"Saint Leo is a joke. Terrible student advisors. Terrible IT. Terrible senior faculty. Terrible GI Bill administration. Even my professors slammed the school. I am planning to withdraw and go elsewhere. It is astounding to me that this school even is able to keep its doors open. What a waist of time."

"The campus is beautiful. Most of the students are nice, but many are clueless. However, beyond that, the school is not a supporter of the arts. Theatre is an absolute joke. You will learn nothing about the craft of theater if that is your desire. You will learn how to be a good audience member. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL IF YOU WANT TO LEARN ACTING, the staff is unqualified to teach it."
