Degree: Neuroscience
Graduation Year: 2017

I attended the University of St. Thomas for a few reasons: the neuroscience program, low student to faculty ratio, networking, and the soccer team. None of the mentioned reasons disappointed. The neuroscience program is relatively new, but is very well developed and the professors that teach the courses are some of the best and passionate about their work. General courses tend to have a higher student to faculty ratio, but once you get into your major, the classes become quite intimate and you often see many of the same students in your other classes. Joining the soccer team my freshman year really helped me make and keep friends. Although it was hard to balance sports with school, it was a worthwhile experience. My professors and advisors at the university (even after graduation) have been essential to my networking. They have many connections themselves and never hesitate to get you in touch, or write letters of recommendation. The university is located in a quiet residential community between St. Paul and Minneapolis. During my four years, I never felt unsafe walking home at night. Off campus housing is relatively easy to come by and affordable. I paid anywhere between $380-$550 per month during the years I lived off campus. The farthest I lived off campus was one mile, which was ideal for walking or biking because parking on campus is very hard to find unless you buy a permit. One of the only negatives about receiving an education from St. Thomas is the cost. Although, after financial aid and scholarships are applied, it is comparable to tuition at the U of M. Something I would like to see more of from St. Thomas is diversity. Although they are working on it, they do not compare to a school like Macalester or the U of M in this department. What they lack for diversity experience on campus, they might possibly make up in their number of students who study abroad. I myself had the opportunity to study five months in Ecuador, and it was the highlight of my time as an undergrad. I am now pursing my doctorate, something that my courses at UST greatly prepared me for. I graduated feeling confident and that I had a great support system behind me shall I need to call upon it in the future.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of St. Thomas granted me so much access to exploring the career that truly called to me. The curriculum was diverse and multidisciplinary, which allowed me to gain experiences in unique fields and shape the direction of my future. I would like St. Thomas to improve their cultural diversity.

Degree: Broadcast Journalism
Graduation Year: 1998

It has been 20 years since I attended University of St. Thomas but I continue to be impressed with their post grad networking opportunities. I could participate more if I still lived in the twin cities area. But even here in Kansas City they have networking opportunities sometimes that have been a fun way to stay connected to folks from my alma mater. I am now getting started on a Masters Degree in Communication and I feel like my work at St. Thomas more than prepared me for a higher education environment.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of St Thomas is a great school to attend because of the amount of work they do to prepare you for your field of work. In engineering, they create courses with plenty of lab time to learn machines you will use industry and they have a whole course designed around getting students comfortable with real world engineering problems. Other programs around UST are similar, internships are expected in some programs and are highly suggested in others. There are so many resources to help you at UST with career development, reviewing resumes, and helping you pass classes with tutors. The classes are small enough where the professors know you and are always there to help you.
