    Campus Safety

    we always have cops roaming around our campus. once again, the school is so small, we even know all the cops' names.

    Greek Life

    we have five greek organizations.

    Clubs and Activities

    i'm personally not in any of the clubs offered here yet, but all my friends that are in the clubs are completely happy with them. the main clubs offered are the hispanic club(not the proper name), the sororities, pro-life club, and the buckley team.

    Great for these types of students

    you'll like this school better if you want to get away from home, love oklahoma, like the small school feel, want to be in a club, or plan to play a sport here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    some of the dorms are said to be haunted by nuns.

    Bang for the buck

    for how much we pay, we all agree the school should have much more improvements. we have the great room in our school that everyone always hangs out at and we swear the sofas have been there for years, the pool table sticks are broken, the food is not the best, and the lab equipment is old. just the little things we wish could improve, but for the most part paying to have the smaller class sizes, know all the students, and play a sport is worth it.

    What to do for fun

    during the weekdays we all usually go out to support whichever sport is in season, because our school is so small any supoort is always appreciated by our fellow students. on wednesdays-saturdays, certain dance clubs are recommended in oklahoma city, which is 100% worth the 45 minute drive to escape shawnee. also, other students like to drive to norman(1 hour away) for ou or stillwater(1 hour away) for osu.

    Food and Dining

    on certain days the food in our one cafeteria is reasonably good, but most days the food is unhealthy(greasy, fried, high in sodium); i'm a health freak for the most part and sometimes the best thing to eat is only a sandwich. also, the times are sometime inconvenient(if you have a car, we all just go to the nearby fast food places). if not wanting to eat in shawnee, the better/closest fine dining would be in midwest city or oklahoma city.

    Dorm Life

    honestly, we all very much dislike the dorms. until you're 21(unless special circumstances), you are required to stay on campus. the best one can do in the dorms is either request for a single suite which is still small, or become an prefict (ra) after your freshman year.

    Academic Rigor

    because the class sizes are so small, learning from the teacher is much easier; any questions are always answered. it's so small they sometimes get on to you for talking or texting sometimes in class. the workload is reasonable; it's easier to take more credit hours here.

    Tips for prospective students

    many of the students here participate in some type of sport, so if you're coming to this school and aren't an athlete, don't worry. the students who are not athletes join one of the many clubs at our school. also, if you are looking for a big school or the huge everyday city life, do not come here; this university is perfect for the experience small private university feel.

    In three sentences

    academically the class sizes are perfect for the one on one learning with the teachers. socially one ends up knowing everyone at the school. outside of school wise, there is much to do in oklahoma city (45 minutes away).

    Academic Rigor

    the classes are hard but the professors are willing to work with you. i have three of my teachers cell numbers and i text the when i need help, how many college students can say that?

    Tips for prospective students

    -dont worry about not making friends in about a month you will know every one - always have your Cav card it gets you into the games, free movie nights, and other events on campus. - Get involved :)

    In three sentences

    My university promotes balance, community, and a well rounded person. I am going to be senior this fall and this campus is home to me. Its a small private liberal arts school and i wouldn't have it any other way.

    Campus Safety

    Security is around the clock. You will see security making rounds hourly on campus and is located in the dorms. Security is rated as an 8.

    Greek Life

    There are a few soroities and fratrernities on campus. It is not a major activity at school. They do have active groups. They are not too prevelant.

    Clubs and Activities

    The university offers various intercollegiate sports. Intramurals for the not so talented athletes. Acting plays and the Buckley team are just a few of the clubs offered.

    Great for these types of students

    This university is not for the party type and struggle to class student. You must have a mind set on your studies as a number one priority. A serene place for reflection is a plus.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The tradition of being a catholic university. We celebrate the feasts and have daily mass if you choose to go. Bible study weekly and movie night.

    Bang for the buck

    The university is a little pricey. You do get your monies worth. The professors all are very knowledgeable in their field. The university show extreme care in you as an individual. Rate this university a 9.

    What to do for fun

    The university has intramurals of various activities. Fraternities and Sororities are on campus. Athletics are always a fun time along with acting in plays.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria is all you can eat style. The food is very good. A cyber cafe is located in the dorms for fast food preference.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in the dorms. I do know the dorms are equipped with everything you will need. They have a cyber cafe in the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    The studies are difficult. Faculty know their stuff and stretch your minds to the fullest. The studies are an overall view for everyone.

    Tips for prospective students

    The students who prefer a small setting, this is a choice. Athletics is growing but not as important as your studies. Each faculty knows your name.

    In three sentences

    St. Gregory's University is a top notch school. The studies are structured to make you stretch you minds. The atmosphere is serene and close knit group of students and faculty.

    Campus Safety

    I have never heard of anything bad happening on campus, aside from a student microwaving foil and starting a fire. It wasn't a bad fire it didn't leave her room. The security makes regular sweeps of campus and there have been no problems that I have heard them dealing with

    Greek Life

    There are several of the funny letter things. I'll probably join one.

    Clubs and Activities

    As yet I have not experienced them. I know there are a lot, I don't know what they do aside from the occasional dance.

    Great for these types of students

    As a homeschool student I look forward to going to school, but the thought of a big school like OU scared me. If you want to study theology SGU is the way to go.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The monks on campus are all very fun. Almost every time I've been on campus they have brightened my day just a little, they have helped so much in getting into school.

    Bang for the buck

    It is an expensive school but there are a lot of scholarships. It is small so the teachers can give more personal help to the students who need it.

    What to do for fun

    You can use the gym at any point that it's open. There is Racquetball, basketball, an indoor track, a pool, and many other forms of physical activity available in the gym. There are many student run things like the Zombie game they do spring semester. There are dances and games put on by clubs. There is disc golf set up all over campus.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria isn't the greatest food, it's edible. If you bring a few seasoning with you in you can make it taste pretty good. I know it is better than any other cafeteria I've been in

    Dorm Life

    I'm told the dorms are decently comfortable. They just got new beds so it should be better than I've been told. When I went to check on them they were under construction.

    Academic Rigor

    I have not experienced this nor has my sister talked about it much

    Tips for prospective students

    Find your niche, it is a really small school but there are groups of people who are really close who you will be close to for the rest of your life. You get to know everyone a little but once you are in that close group or club things can become easier.

    In three sentences

    SGU Is a beautiful school. They have an amazing staff, who regularly go out of their way to help perspective students. Their campus is small, but well kept and good for walking when you need to clear your head.

    Campus Safety

    the campus is well secured with officers on patrol all times of the day. there hasn't been a moment here that I've felt unsafe. i feel very safe on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    with St Gregory's being a catholic school it would be a great fit for students that have a strong catholic belief. its very sports oriented as well so people interested in sport would enjoy it here.

    What to do for fun

    there isn't much to do for fun except play pool, ping pong, or watch TV. after a while you get tiring of doing that all of the time.

    Food and Dining

    in the cafe we have great dining options for an array of different people. the thing is the selection doesn't change much. the food isn't nasty but it can often be bland.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life isn't the worst but it could be better. there are gnats everywhere in the dorms and the water sometimes runs cold instead of hot but i guess this is college life. they are very quiet, on my floor at least. they are well furnished.

    Academic Rigor

    academically the school isn't very rigorous in my opinion... or maybe it just hasn't gotten very challenging yet.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you are ready for work loads such as these here at St Gregory's. it isn't unbearable but it will become so if you do not know how to manage your time. everything is taken very seriously so you must stay on top of your studies.

    In three sentences

    so far i am enjoying my experience here at St. Gregory's University. i have met great people & i am learning skills that will help me even once i graduate. i believe the school is a great fit for me.
