"The program started off well, but about half-way through, the school changed the 'name' of the degree and the length of the classes. There was no option for existing students to continue on as agreed to, and this extended the program by about 6-8 months. The student services representative for the students in my doctoral co-hort is awful. She is rude, condescending and seemingly has no understanding of adult-student learners. The program itself is poorly designed, lacks creativity and has not helped me at all in my career. Each week, you write a 3-5 page paper with a longer paper due at the final week. In addition, you must complete 2 weekly discussions. This is for every single class, with no change in the assignments. The work is repetitive, and you often feel that you are doing 'busy work,' and simply repeating the work you did in the class before. There is very little support for the dissertation process other than a 'chair.' I have talked to my chair, via phone for about 20 minutes combined over the last 6 months. I will take ownership of the fact that I have not been as proactive in reaching out to her as I should be, however. I will finish the program and graduate in 2020; I wish that I did not have so much work and money invested in the program and I could leave to another program where I have the ability to actually be challenged, learn and grow both academically and professionally."

"St. Thomas University is a university of diversity, rigor, and opportunity. I attained my Bachelor's and Master's degree at this institution because the staff were welcoming and knowledgeable of their material. When I graduated, I was able to acquire employment and was fully prepared in my field. I continue to thrive and continue to keep in touch with my mentors as they were the jump start to my career."

"My experience as a law student was one of the best because of the teaching style adopted at the law school. Not only were the professors readily available for any questions, but they also encouraged free thinking and creative solutions to the traditional theoretical concepts. Most importantly, the school's commitment to the community is the essence of their mission "for the common good" and is unmatched."

"St Thomas is a well respected graduate program with great professors. The professors are very knowlegable and passionate about what they teach in. The classes are rigorous and alot can be achieved from them. The school is not very diverse."

"St. Thomas University is conspicuously tucked away in Miami Gardens, the west area of Miami. Don't be fooled by the surroundings of the school, there are great students and influential professors within this campus. My experience pertains to the Law School, which has high influence on campus and my ratings reflect this grad program. My grade for competitiveness and workload reflect that. As much as this school is competitive, professors and career services department provide lots of support and the academic services department are always available to answer any of your questions. Contact the school to be part of an orientation event or tour to get a feel for the campus. It may feel dense at first, but you will quickly notice there is a close network of students (undergrad and grad alike) and you will enjoy your experience here."

"St. Thomas University provides a very multicultural dimension to the learning environment that many universities do not afford nationally. The one-to-one attention given to the students is phenomenal. Professors work late hours to provide feedback and to be resources for students who are there full and part time. Students are also afforded financial aid opportunities to fund their education. The campus also provides accessibility for students with physical challenges. Honestly true to its identity, St. Thomas is a Catholic or "universal" university."

"I like St. Thomas University because it is a small intimate setting which will cater to your needs. The teachers are eager to help and guide you. The teachers are personable. They actually know your name. In essence, you are not just a number in a large class. Furthermore, the teachers are profound experts in their field, so they are knowledgeable in preparing you for the area or field of choice in the work force. There is ample financial aid and scholarships to ease the stress of the expensive costs of attaining a degree. St. Thomas really live up to their motto of preparing and developing leaders for life so that you may compete globally effectively."
