Saint Leo University Reviews
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.
At Saint leo university I was able to obtain my Bachelors degree in Psychology. This has not only allowed me to grow as a person but this also helped me understand myself and the issues I have faced. This degree has opened many doors for me in my career.
I was a nice school. They keep their class on the small size less than 30 in any class. They have expanded a lot over the last 5 years. The school of business uses a lot of technology in the classes. No matter your major you will find your moving up with the same people.
Avoid even going there! Won't work with you and your classes if you want to transfer and overly charge for classes. Short deadlines to drop out classes .I repeat Avoid even going there! Won't work with you and your classes if you want to transfer and overly charge for classes. Short deadlines to drop classes
Saint Leo University was a great learning experience. I love the blended classes. The professors are great because they truly want you to succeed. I had to stop attending due to medical problems and the university worked with me every step of the way.
