    You can even meet people of your culture or people from upper state who can tell you a lot from what they have learned or from what you have learned and you can connect from there. You also can get a job on campus if you really need one.

    Tips for prospective students

    Here at Saint Leo you will meet with great teachers and if you need help with anything you will get it. You have a learning center that you can go to for experience tutors to help you do better in classes you are struggling in. You would get a great college experience from Saint Leo as well.

    Am learning a lot

    I can get a lot out from what I learned from each and everyone of my classes that I have taken.

    Students that believe in integrity, respect, discipline, and hard work. Students that believe nothing comes easy. Students that have the willingness to strive and a desire to learn.

    Tips for prospective students

    St. Leo is a promising University. However, if you are not taking your education seriously, then St. Leo is not for you. You will have to do the work, and they make it clear that St. Leo doesn't make earning your degree easy.

    Will enjoy being here

    Anyone that is willing to work hard, will love it here at St. Leo. St. Leo is not a school whether online or on campus, that encourages procrastination and laziness. It functions to provide you with the best possible education that you need, if you work hard and want it.

    Will learn a lot

    I started the orientation that St. Leo offers for upcoming students, and just from the orientation I have learned so much about myself. In addition, I have discovered truly what a degree should mean and the statement I can make once I achieve it.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would have to say that tips for prospective students from my personal experiences at Saint Leo is to get involved as soon as possible. This way you meet people and start to network with important people for the future!

    Bang for the buck

    It is pricy to go to school here, but it is totally worth it in the end. I am majoring in Elementary Education and the advisors in Education are wonderful! I have heard such great things about the graduate program that I get to look forward to. Getting an amazing education will benefit everyone in the end no matter what the cost is. You can't put a cost on education.

    Am enjoying being here

    There's always something going on at Saint Leo. Get involved in school, go greek, or just make new friends walking around the beautiful campus! I enjoy being at Saint Leo and the people around me everyday. Everyone is so nice and down to earth. People are always there to help no matter what.

    Am learning a lot

    Classes are very small and is in your best interest because you learn SO much more. The professors know you by name and not by just a number like bigger colleges. I learn something new in every class that I take.

    Great for these types of students

    Saint Leo has a focused ROTC program, so any students interested in the military would be a great asset. The business program is ever expanding; we just got a new building on our campus, with marbled floors and modern architecture, donated by an alumni. Students interested in Psychology will find professors always eager to teach their subjects and teach them well; also opportunities to do your own research. The English department is creative, and students interested in this department will learn how to analyze, and correctly write in the MLA format.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always find an upperclassman in your major. We pay money to become smart - we are always looking for someone to mentor and share our information! If you need help, don't be afraid to ask someone, especially a professor. The professors here know you by name; it's a very personable atmosphere.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition includes a laptop, which is the most important tool I've ever needed as a college student!

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is beautiful and ever-expanding. With a view of Lake Jovita, a grassy field in the middle of campus, and a courtyard dedicated to the men and women servicing our country, this campus has personality. Walking around I always see people with a smile on their face and I can't help but smile back!

    Am learning a lot

    I am a Professional Writing major with a minor in Psychology. I have always enjoyed writing, and the English department is phenomenal. I not only have learning how to write professionally, but creatively as well. I became inspired with writing through poetry, and because of the fantastic faculty on campus, I now know how to write short stories, prose, creative non-fiction, and plays. I've stepped out of my comfort zone and I couldn't be happier!

    Bang for the buck

    Though the tuition is quite high, you also have to remember it is a private university. The amount that you get in return out-weighs the price!

    Am enjoying being here

    With the Campus Activities Board (CAB), there is so much to do on campus, along with a lot of different clubs and organizations to be apart of!

    Campus Safety

    I would rate this above 5 stars, as every person there is there for an education. Teachers and students are all like-minded, and if campus security is an issue, then students and teachers alike will assist security in a resolution.

    Greek Life

    Many organizations are available to pledge, including the National Honors Society as well as many Greek houses on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    Saint Leo offers a wide range of activities.

    Great for these types of students

    Saint Leo is perfect for working adults who wish to return to school after a long break. It also caters heavily to the military professional, as most of my peers are service men and women. The knowledge you gain from them can never be learned in any book.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Core values are also exemplified by philanthropy, and for my birthday Saint Leo made a donation to the organization of my choice. I chose the Elephant Sanctuary of Tennessee!

    Bang for the buck

    As far as the cost of being able to do my schoolwork after I get home from work; the cost is more than fair! There is a certain dynamic involved in communicating online with peers from around the world. Learning real-world applications from other cultures really has no monetary value, it is just one of the many extra hidden bonuses at Saint Leo. Teachers are all professionals, and are more than qualified, they are the best of the best.

    What to do for fun

    Study, volunteer, and plan for the future! Saint Leo has many clubs students can participate in, as well as youth ministry and opportunities to participate in outside volunteer and community programs.

    Food and Dining

    Students have access to multiple dining opportunities while on campus, I am sure they all make their own decisions and form their own opinions!

    Dorm Life

    I have never heard a bad dorm story, therefore, I rate it a 5 star experience.

    Academic Rigor

    Living in Idaho and attending a University in Florida was not a hard choice. The website offers links to every part of campus life, and students enrolled in the online classes are still invited to seminars, organizations, and are both involved as well as excited to participate! I have always felt part of the student community, and have made many new friends!

    Tips for prospective students

    The best thing to do is be yourself and never be afraid to ask a question. Instructors are fair, and every single person at the school is concerned for and genuinely cares about your success.

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo University exemplifies core values and emphasizes integrity, community, and spirit. Instructors are real-world professionals and peers are like-minded adult professionals, all with a desire to contribute to the learning process. I am honored to be studying at such a professional university.

    Tips for prospective students

    If students are struggling in a subject, they should get help from their teacher. This can be accomplish bu going to their office hours. if this does not work they should find tutoring by their peers and if this does not work they should start to join a study group so they can get help from the student in the same class.

    In three sentences

    Students who want small class sizes and value a quality education.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep your grades up. Never fall behind in your classes because the work will pile up. Join clubs ASAP.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition is somewhat expensive, but it is worth it for the opportunities that the school offers its students. Many internships are offered. The education you will receive here is priceless.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is small and secluded, so if you want to leave campus you will need a car. However, there is almost always an activity, such as sporting events, mini carnivals, barbecues, bingo etc., happening on campus that students are welcome to participate in. There are a few fraternities and sororities on campus. Clubs and organizations are not scarce. On top of that, I love the people that I'm meeting here.

    Am learning a lot

    The class sizes are small so it's easy to ask questions and receive a good detailed answer. Most of the professors are excellent at their jobs and care about your success. I am in the honors program and, although the classes that I'm taking do not relate to my major, I'm learning and improving skills that I use in my other classes.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is always there for you. When you need a ride to a specific building late at night they come and pick you up. They are also very helpful when you are in need of medical attention, they rush right over and assist you in any way they can.

    Greek Life

    Greek life on campus isn't like many colleges. They do not have housing for fraternities nor sororities because it's a private catholic college. The Greek life does do a great job hosting events on campus and making campus life entertaining.

    Clubs and Activities

    Clubs and Activities is a main part of campus life. They hold different events daily. Our campus is never dull or lacking something to do. The clubs hold activities daily for us to do and entertain everyone with.

    What to do for fun

    On campus we have a huge lake, where you are able to go on boats and go kayaking. Within the lake our lovely friend Chocolate resides. She is over 7 feet tall alligator that everyone knows about.

    Food and Dining

    The food is exceptionally amazing. There is a wide variety of food to eat. Everyday it's a surprise as to what is being served. Breakfast is most people's favorite part of Saint Leo's Food and Dinning. Our Ice cream bar is amazing as well.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is very nice depending where you live. Of course nothing is going to be like home. Most dorms consists of two beds, two desks, two closets, and a sharing sink. Other dorms may allow you to have your own room

    Academic Rigor

    Academically this school is decent. The class that you take 75% of them do not transfer. If you choose to transfer take classes that can help you in the long run, rather than taking class the University requires first.

    Tips for prospective students

    I think If you choose to come to College at Saint Leo, you should come with an open mind. This university has courses that will not transfer if you choose to leave. The financial part changes a lot while your here.

    In three sentences

    I believe Saint Leo University is a very well rounded University. The scenery is beautiful, they are always remodeling the campus. This school has transformed a lot since it was first made.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are amazing and they have no more than 30 people in a classroom which is amazing because you get to have that 101 with your professor. They love for students to ask questions!

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask for help when if you're lost, people won't look at you weird. And the library that will be your best friend especially during exams, love that place!

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo University is an amazing college to attend, you feel like you're right at home because everyone is very friendly. From 1 to 10 I would give Saint Leo a 10, the campus is beautiful, and faculty is ready to help you at any time. You will love the person you will become here.

    Great for these types of students

    The program, if it is setup, is great for students having to work on weekdays and can not go to school. Those students who want to get through school a little faster it is great for that, but be prepared to mostly teach yourself.

    Bang for the buck

    There are some good teacher that are interest in what they teach and want to give out the information, then others not as passionate. I had one teacher that assign the class to read the chapters then come to class and that is what they did in class to us. I only felt one teacher out of five give me a bang for my buck.

    What to do for fun

    I go on the weekend I do not have much information about what goes on at the campus. If there is something going on, I am most likely heading to class.

    Academic Rigor

    It is hard to tell because I had one teacher who was strict, but that was because they were stressing out about the time and what they had to get through. Others teachers have just brush it off of if we do not get to it then that is to bad.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would stay away from the Weekend and Evening Program. I thought when I was first coming into this program that it has been in the school for many years, but it only been running for about three to four years. Every time I was looking at my schedule I found that they did not have the course I needed and this is due to the lack of teachers available.

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo University Weekend and Evening Program is unorganized and feel like it still under development. The program does not have or enough experience teachers teaching the class. Some are good at time management under the short time, but others stress out on the short time and do not properly present the information.

    Very safe.

    Clubs and Activities

    Lots.

    Great for these types of students

    If you want to be a part of your community in college, this is the place for you. There is a spot for everyone.

    Bang for the buck

    I think the education is superior, the dedication from the professors to helping students and explaining concepts clearly is first rate.

    What to do for fun

    Saint Leo is a little isolated so there isn't much off campus to go and do. But the university makes a lot of effort to provide events for students. Even trips to Disney World, Busch Gardens and Sea World. Current movies are often played on campus.

    Food and Dining

    Compared to most dining facilities that I have ever been around, the food is good. There are healthy choices, but there is the not so healthy too, if you want to go that direction.

    Academic Rigor

    Be prepared to work. Expectations are high and standards are high. The community supports each other but everyone is expected to work for their grades.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to work hard. Embrace the core values of Saint Leo and you will go far. Participate in your community, in any and all ways that you can.

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo is an excellent small university. The English Department provides truly excellent professors who are working in the field, are published and provide not only superior education in English as a field of study but also provide a great insight into opportunities within the field.

    What to do for fun

    My focus is on schooling and I can party when I'm making the type of money I'm looking to make upon graduation. However, the University Campus for SLU is in Saint Leo, FL really laid back and quiet. If you're looking to really party, you will have to drive to Tampa.

    Food and Dining

    I do not live on campus therefore I can't comment of the food and dining.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live on campus so I can't comment on Dorm Life.

    Academic Rigor

    There are no bird courses at SLU. In every class you are guaranteed to learn something new. Sometimes the work can become overwhelming, but that's where your properly implemented time management skills and tutoring come into play.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that any school you are attending offers the degree program you want, don't just settle. Though, Saint Leo University didn't offer the AA program that I desired, they do offer the Bachelors in Social Work and even the MSW which I plan to obtain all at SLU.

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo University is a wonderful school. When you attend SLU you feel like you are a part of a respected community, weather you attend traditional campus or attend the Center for Online Learning. Like all schools, you have great professors and then you have the professors who like to attack everything you do but can never properly answer a question when something is brought to their attention. The course load is not a walk in the park, if you are looking for bird courses you will not find them at SLU. The cost of attendance is pretty high but so far I am receiving an education that is worth every penny.

    Large variety of Greek academic organizations present, however, there are only two traditionally historical fraternities for African Americans.

    Clubs and Activities

    Great for these types of students

    Saint Leo University is great for students that are serious about obtaining their first or next degree.

    Bang for the buck

    Instructors are professionals in their areas of concentration. Class sizes are usually small (18 students on average) so personalized attention is given in every class. Saint Leo offers a multitude of learning options to fit the needs of most students. This flexibility allows students to complete degrees while still having other obligations. In addition to a traditional campus of study, Saint Leo offers a Weekend and Evening Program, as well as Online and Distance Learning.

    What to do for fun

    Savannah is a city full of history, culture and activity. There is a lot to do in this area (pub crawls, museums, carriage, haunting or walking tours, parks, planned squares, River Street, Market Walk, Tybee Island, Fort Pulaski). I spend my time dancing, playing computer games, listening to live music and reading.

    Food and Dining

    Savannah has a wide variety of food establishments.

    Dorm Life

    Saint Leo University's main campus is located near Tampa, FL and offers campuses in California and throughout the South (Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia). I am currently taking classes on-line. However, there is a campus locally here in Savannah, GA that is accessible.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses are challenging and thought provoking. The curriculum is relevant, informative, and current. Saint Leo's academic pace is quick. Classes are completed in 8-week semesters. This is not the place for anyone who is not focused or determined.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come prepared to work hard and feel rewarded with success. Time management is a necessity especially if you have other obligations like parenting or full-time work. Use your resources-academic advisor, financial liaison, professors, mentors are all available to support your successful attainment of your degree.

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo University is a institute of higher learning for students who work full-time or have personal responsibilities to reach academic and professional goals. The class sizes are small which allow for more personal interaction between students and professors. The culture of Saint Leo is based on six core values: Excellence, Community, Respect, Personal Development, Integrity and Responsible Stewardship.

    Campus Safety

    I think the safety on campus is very good. When you are walking on campus there are emergency boxes every where.

    Greek Life

    Since I am only a freshman I am not allowed to join any sorrorities yet, but i have heard great things about them.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is pretty much a club for anything you can think of. If you cant find a club you like you can make a club of your own and get people to join.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are a biology major I recommend you join Tri Beta. If you enjoy singing there is a singing group called SASS you could join. If you are a math major there are plenty of clubs you can join also.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a church located on our school which might be unusual to other schools, but it is very beautiful.

    Bang for the buck

    As a private University the cost is steep, the benefits include very small class sizes, that one on one attention with your teachers.

    What to do for fun

    There is not a lot around Saint Leo, but if you drive a little bit there is a mall where friends and i like to go shopping. I enjoy going to yoga classes every tuesday and thursday.

    Food and Dining

    I was very impressed with the food when I first arrived at Saint Leo, but you get tired of eating the same food every day very shortly. If I could change one thing about the dinning hall I would add more booths. It is always a hard time finding a place to sit.

    Dorm Life

    Snyder is pretty old. Could use some improvement, but there are newer apartments for once you are no longer a freshman. I really look forward to moving into the apartments next year.

    Academic Rigor

    I find all of my classes to be very challenging since I am a biology major.

    Tips for prospective students

    You should really get involved with study groups. I really recommend joining clubs that you show interest in. Take advantage of the yoga and other classes that the gym offers.

    In three sentences

    I really love attending Saint Leo University. The class sizes are very small, so it really gives you that one on one time with your professors. There is always a lot of tutoring available to students.

    Great for students who like the small to medium student class rooms and like the interactions with there professors.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    At the home basketball games, the crowd must stay standing until Saint Leo scores there first basket. I think that is a great tradition for the students and fans.

    What to do for fun

    There are always sporting events occurring on campus and the games are great to watch. If you are looking for outside activities Tampa is about 30 minutes away and there are different places to go to pass the time.

    Food and Dining

    The food is great, I never leave the cafe still hungry but always full. The selection is great and enjoyable.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to come with a mind set that college isn't all just fun and games, but to work hard on your studies because it will definitely help you in the long run. Also get your sleep in, being tired all day won't get you to far. Time manage yourself these 4 years!

    I am an on-line/distance learning student. St. Leo is very well equipped for those students that enjoy doing most of their coursework on computer.

    Bang for the buck

    St. Leo University just reduced the cost of tuition and is actually competitive with the area state universities.

    Academic Rigor

    I believe that St. Leo University keeps the student's academic workload manageable but not too easy. The courses are challenging but not impossible.

    Tips for prospective students

    A prospective student should apply and register as soon as possible and not put off meeting with an adviser to register for classes. This is a private institution, so search extra hard for scholarships.

    Academic Rigor

    I believe I'm receiving the best education here at Saint Leo.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking for a college with professors that work well with you, Saint Leo University is where you should look. It's nice to know that all of my professors know me by name and know my grade when I simply ask. The campus is beautiful on the lake of Jovita.

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo University is a wonderful college. I've had nothing but a positive experience here, the professors are great, administration works well with you, and the sport teams are the best! It's rated 10 out of 10 for me!

    It is more expensive than state colleges but because the faculty that I have worked with have real life experience, I feel like they understand the working adult. I am a name not just a student ID number.

    What to do for fun

    I am taking online courses. I have no idea what the campus life is like. I am a working professional going back to school.

    The food is AMAZING! They ask what people like and get a little bit of everything. It's like a home-cooked meal every night!

    Dorm Life

    I don't live on campus, but everyone tells me that living in the dorms is great and that they pair you with someone that is like you but different so that you can learn about different cultures.

    The teachers are super awesome. They try to help you and get you involved with things and they have a mutual respect for student as people.

    Tips for prospective students

    Try a little bit of everything because you never know what you're going to like or even what you're good at until you try. And always check out the bookstore because they always have sales and new books coming in. The lair, well the lair has the best food in town!

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo is a very friendly and upbeat school that has something for everyone academically and in extra curricular activities. The students are nice and the teachers are willing to help with anything and everything that you may need, and if they can't they will find the people that can. The classes are small so everyone is a person not just a number.

    Well, here at Saint Leo there is always something to do for fun. We make many trips throughout the semester to practically everything and everywhere in Florida for only five dollars. For example, one of the trips that we made for five dollars was to the season opener Tampa Rays game.

    Food and Dining

    The food is great here, I think I have gained a couple of pounds since I've been here, but I cannot help myself the food is just so good. They make a variety of things everyday for all the students making it a pleasant and delightful place to eat all of your meals.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are great. Everyone gets along pretty well in the dorm halls here at Saint Leo making the dorm life as peaceful as you can ever imagine.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic level is very high in the university. Many professors spend hours of their own time to help the students at anything as much as they can. I have never seen so many teachers or really professors offer their help and actually help so many students as i have seen here at Saint Leo.

    Tips for prospective students

    Well, one tip that I can give you is to not be shy at all because everyone here is or may be as dorky or geeky as you, yet the nicest and coolest. Another tip can be to not be afraid of doing you own thing, here in Saint Leo is very enforced.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is always right around the corner thanks to Saint Leo's seemingly infinite amount of cameras. Almost everywhere you look, a camera stares back at you including inside certain elevators. If there is any crime to commit, the act will be caught and the criminal penalized.

    Greek Life

    There are many sororities on campus including tri beta, a biological organization in which students collaborate to share their knowledge on biological topics. Admission price and rules differ between clubs as well as the main topic of intrest, but in the end, it can be well worth the time. Many friends can be made and knowledge obtained not to mention the fun and special benefits offered by some Greek organizations such as scholarships, free parties, and other social events.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a seemingly infinite amount of clubs and organizations on campus, each of which have their own unique specialties and activities. Students are allowed to begin new clubs rather easily and can create more than one. Many of the clubs have fees however, some do not. These are great opportunities to have fun with others and complete community service on planned days.

    Great for these types of students

    Anyone interested in pursuing a career in business, biology, or law would most likely favor Saint Leo over other universities.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Saint Leo has a birthday celebration in the cafeteria once a month.

    Bang for the buck

    Being a private school, the cost to attend is higher than that of many other colleges though when considered, the services offered are phenomenal concidering how many resources are available to students on a constant basis.

    What to do for fun

    There is a game room located at the base of a new appartment complex built beside the dorms. Included in the room are a variety of arcade games and others such as fooseball, pool, and air hockey. All are free and open 24/7 for student use. A gymnasium is directly across the street from the game room and offers just about any work out imaginable. From hammering giant tires to yoga classes and treadmills, there is never a lack of activity. In addition to these benefits, the campus almost constantly offers extreme discounts to adventure parks and other attractions around Florida. Most of the time tickets are $5 and can allow students to enter attractions such as Bush Gardens HowlOscream and the movies at no additional cost. Practice rooms are also offered for musicians to jam on guitars, pianis, and drums located in the music building.

    Food and Dining

    If you can picture a 4 star resturant with open buffet and only an $8 enterance fee, you can easily picture the cafeteria at Saint Leo University. Students can choose from a variety of healthy foods including sugar free pastries, salads, and even oriental food cooked on a large flat grill. Ice cream, jello, and even slurpies are offered in addition to the previous. The list goes on for main courses as every day, something new is served. It's all you can eat after all.

    Dorm Life

    While I do not live in a dorm, I have seen the internal structure of the dormatories and had the luxury of staying in a few temporarily. Each room comes equipped with a bed with matress, desk, and storage closet. The majority of rooms are split between two and four students and are therefore, equipped with a large counter inluding a sink and mini fridge for every two students in the room. It is the responsibility of the student to decide who uses certain storage areas.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are the main focus at Saint Leo University and though they do have many diverse fields to study, each one is governed by an experienced professor, uaually at the doctoral level. As a result, course work is heavy and can be challenging at some times however, in the end many students can look back and be proud of their hard earned accomplishments.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you are ready for a heavy work load. Studying some of the basic topics related to your major and or classes could also assist in giving an advantage with preparation.

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo University offers superb academics as well as experienced staff. People on campus are always friendly and willing to give a helping hand to those in need. I would highly recommend this college to other students seeking a well deserved degree in a subject they love.

    Campus Safety

    They have one of the best safety ratings in Florida. Its so small and they have golf carts so they can help anywhere.

    Greek Life

    there is Greek Life and its a lot of fun and they do a lot of good for the community. I highly recommend it. (i'm planning on rushing)

    Clubs and Activities

    they have clubs for everything and if not its easy to make your own.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is expensive. It honestly is, that's why half the class is leaving. but they hold a lot of events for you.

    What to do for fun

    Tampa: clubs, activities movies on campus drinking bingo night on campus they hold a lot of free vents and trips to movies and such. ( I recently went to celebration station for free.)

    Food and Dining

    The dining hall is good, better than USF dining hall. The food is changing a lot. There is a salad bar, sandwich station and a wok station. and the best cookies :) the downside is there are no close restaurants only the lions lair. which is campus run and a little expensive.

    Dorm Life

    The rooms are bigger than most of the schools I visited. There okay, the newer ones are nicer. If you are a freshman, there are two options 1) Henderson/ Beniot which is on campus and nice enough except there small, dark and I have heard stories of bugs. 2) Marimon/ Synder which is on campus but a 15 minute walk from the 'hill' (its safe) you pass the church and its a little long. I live here and its not as bad as it sounds. just have headphones or friends. the downside is the hill is steep. The good thing is the rooms are bigger than most, its clean(ish) for a college dorm and everyone knows each other. Because you are stuck far from campus together you meet everyone and everyone becomes friends quicker. (it also creates gossip though)

    Academic Rigor

    Its a average, if not a little less than average school (academic wise). If you did good in high school you will be fine here. Its a lot of papers and most of the classes follow the same guidelines. come to class, pay half-attention (for most people) and do the work and you will be fine. The best part is that the teachers know you because its so small, Its high school size class. If something is going on they are understanding.

    Tips for prospective students

    You need a car (or a friend with a car). If you live in Marmion/ Synder be prepared to walk. Get involved with the school there are a lot of parties and drinking on campus but if you get busted your screwed. make sure you take classes seriously

    In three sentences

    A great, small, close knit community school. In the country with wonderful views and okay weather. The downside? In the middle of no-where, the closest fun place is 40 minutes. (Tampa)

    Some tips I give would be to utilize your resources on campus. There are plenty of students, teachers, and other resources that can help you if you need it.

    Campus Safety

    This is a very safe campus. They have a tight security team. You will always see them out and about. The security officers are friendly and will always say hello to you.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is big at Saint Leo. Every day you will see Greek letters shown off by the students wearing them. The students are very proud of the Greek life they are a part of. I am not in Greek life, but I do have friends who are and they love it. They said they have made sisters for life.

    Clubs and Activities

    They offer many clubs and activities for students to join. The school is big on inter mural sports. Flyers are always posted around school for the students to see.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for all types of students. The school offers many areas of interest.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    This campus is a catholic school. We participate in religion courses, observe the catholic holidays. We also hold mass every week for students and staff who would like to attend. The school is also built next to a beautiful lake, where students can enjoy activities such as fishing, or can take a canoe out.

    Bang for the buck

    This school is beautiful, fun, safe, and the academics are wonderful. I chose Saint Leo because of their Elementary Education Program. It is one of the best in the state of Florida. I also really love how small the class sizes are.It was just a plus that it was so close to home.

    What to do for fun

    The school has many trips to Disney world, Busch Gardens, Universal Studios, the mall, football, baseball and hockey games lined up all the time for students. They post flyers around campus and also email the students about the opportunities. The school also hosts other activities at the school for students to participate in such as activities on the lake, at the pool, in the campus board rooms etc.

    Food and Dining

    Saint Leo offers a great dining experience. The campus includes a dining hall for on campus residents, a lions lair( convenient store-deli), and across the street at the golf course is a grille and bar restaurant. There are also a few restaurant and sub shops with in walking distance from the campus. Grocery stores and other restaurants are only about a 15 or 20 minute drive from the campus as well.

    Dorm Life

    I lived as a commuter student, I did not have the college dorm experience. Saint Leo takes pride in their student housing, they want to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The freshmen dorms from what I heard are not as luxurious as the upper class mans. I believe they want you to earn the bells and whistles. Other than dorms the campus also offers apartments, they are a little pricey, but they are beautiful. They just finished building another set of buildings and this set includes a fish tank that will be featured on an episode of Tanked this spring, it also includes a game room and nap pods in the lobby of the apartment. Dorm life can help to build life long friendships.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are held high at Saint Leo. They want you to succeed. They will push you hard, but will always lend a helping hand if you need it. If you do not want to be placed on academic probation, I suggest studying hard and keep up with your assignments. Hint: study/work during the week, and save play time for the weekend.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for prospective students would be to make friends and have fun while in college, however keep up with your academics. Meet with your advisor, get to know them, they are there to help you, at Saint Leo the advisers work very hard to meet all of your needs.

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo is a beautiful campus. The many programs they offer are outstanding and the professors are awesome. The small class size is great for one on one interaction with the professor and fellow classmates, you can't find this in many other universities.

    Campus Safety

    Safety is very high. There are cameras all over and always a person on duty to call.

    Greek Life

    Our Greek life is very different than big schools or schools not in the south. I'm personally involved in it and I love it. Greek life is a big deal on campus and gets you involved. Many people are Greek.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many groups to join and get involved with on campus. There's no way you won't something between service, special interest, cultural, academic, and Honor Society groups.

    Great for these types of students

    people who like warm FL weather and a small, close learning community. For people not into football, since there is no team.

    Bang for the buck

    There are a lot of activities put on for students that are free and lots of Leo gear/other stuff is given away to students at these events.

    What to do for fun

    I joined a sorority and participate in clubs. We also have a campus activities board, as well as a First Year Experience Office and Student Government Union that plan events and activities like movie trips, dances, and amusement park trips. Plus, I work out at the gym and pool. There's also intramural sports and a gorgeous lake right on campus with a dock.

    Food and Dining

    Food is okay. There is a lot of variety. Hot food line, pizza and pasta bar, salad bar, soup station, sandwich/wrap line, Asian station, omelet station, vegetarian station, fast food station, desert line, ice cream machines, drink machines (including juice, coffee, and slushies).

    Dorm Life

    This depends on the dorm. There are really only 3 dorms. Most of the other housing is apartment style. I like my dorm. It's a double. However, the roommate, the floor, and the RA really make the experience. There are always ladies on the floor cleaning, especially the bathrooms. It's definitely different than you're own room though so it takes getting used to. It's a lot smaller, plus communal showers and doing your own laundry.

    Academic Rigor

    So far classes have been work, but not too difficult. It depends on class. Freshman prerequisites tend to be easier, while classes specific to the major or honors classes should be more difficult.

    Tips for prospective students

    Definitely visit before you make the decision. Either people love Leo or hate it. It's located in the country, like 15-20 minutes from stores and fast food. That's an issue for some people.

    In three sentences

    I love the school. So many opportunities are available because of the small size and close connection with advisors and professors.

    Whether you attend Saint Leo on campus, online, or one of the variety of college centers they have, make sure that you prioritize. Cut out unnecessary things, especially when big papers or projects are due. Allot time each day to work on assignments instead of scrambling to play catch up. You will find that your college experience is less stressful.

    Campus Safety

    I have been on this campus at various times of the day and night and have never felt unsafe or in danger in anyway.

    Great for these types of students

    Saint Leo is good for any and all students, while their academic courses are a little more rigourous than a community or state college you will see the benefit of the harder assignments pay off quickly.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I enjoy attending Saint Leo because it is a Christian based school and being raised in the christian faith I feel at ease. While the religion portion is never forced or mingled into the lectures you know it is there when we have group discussions.

    Bang for the buck

    This is my fourth college in my educational career and so far it has been my favorite. Everyone from the academic counselors, to the financial aid, and even the IT support are awesome to work with.

    What to do for fun

    If you are attending Saint Leo you are only minutes from one the top 4 largest cities in Florida. You have the beaches only a couple minutes away and Orlando is only an hour to your north. The nightlife, and community is a great place for anyone coming into Tampa.

    Food and Dining

    The food is good, I have only been on campus a couple of times since I am an online student but I only live two hours from campus and when I have stopped in it has been good.

    I do not live on campus.

    The classes are a little challenging at times but the professors are always available and very willing to work with you to help you succeed to your full potential. The classes focus a lot of working together and class discussions.

    Even if you are unsure of what you want to go for call the academic advisor and tell them your situation. They will walk you through your options and take as much time as needed to help you achieve your goals.

    What to do for fun

    Despite the distance from all the things that makes Florida fun there is always something to do. The College Activities Board sells tickets to games, movies, and theme parks. Tickets are very cheap, and you get to go to Bush Gardens, Universal Studios, Disney, and-because so many New Yorkers go to Leo- Yankee vs. Tampa Bay games. Even if you don't buy a ticket before they are sold out, or don't have the money to buy one, you still may be able to go. All you have to do is get to the pick up and drop of zone for the charter buses, and put your name on the waiting list. Any one that isn't their on time loses their ticket, and that ticket is giving to the first person on the waiting list.

    Food and Dining

    Everyone that has a full meal plan gets into the cafeteria for free. The cafe is an all you can eat eatery with a section for asian food, italian food, salads, sandwiches, grilled food, and one section that varies from meal to meal. There is also a little convenient store and restaurant above the cafe. And every student on the full meal plan is allotted a hundred dollars for the store.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms for underclass men aren't all that great, but before the end of the year each student is rated on grades, and if they owe any money, and are giving a number. This number tells you when you get to pick you room. The person that is giving a rating of one picks the dorm/apartment they want, and the it goes down the line until the last person picks the dorm. But don't fret if you don't sit well on the list, and you have a friend that does you can dorm together. The school goes off of the person with the better rating when it comes to picking dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Saint Leo is a wonderful school if you are looking to get a degree in Business, Criminal Justice and Psychology. But its other programs aren't as prestigious as those three.

    Tips for prospective students

    I'd suggest if you are plaining on going to Saint Leo, and are a college freshmen, you should try to get into Henderson(boys), Benoit(girls) . Henderson/Benoit has air conditioning system in each room, were as the actual freshmen dorms is controlled from one thermostat. Henderson/Benoit also has a sink in each room, which comes in handy for things like shaving, and brushing teeth.

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo University is fairly good. The have a great Business program, and a great Criminal Justice program. The only down fall to the school is the cost, and the fact that is in the middle of nowhere.

    Great for these types of students

    Saint Leo is great for students who are afraid to be just a number or a face in the crowd. I personally need the one on one attention with teachers because a Biology major is so crucial to detail. It's also great if you want to know everyone on campus.

    What to do for fun

    There is a bus that takes you to Wiregrass Outlets once a month and there are plenty of activites to do on campus as well! They are all student oriented so people can interact with others and get out as well and have fun in a safe environment.

    Food and Dining

    I love the cafeteria! There are so many different options for food. You can have whatever you want whenever, food is healthy, and they also have a wide enough variety, that you can please your sweet tooth if needed.

    Dorm Life

    The worst part about dorm life is that when you're a freshman, your dorms aren't as nice. You have community style bathrooms, which is a downfall to me. On the plus side, you are considered an upper classman by your sophomore year, and then you get to live in much nicer dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Being a Biology major, I am in one of the most rigorous majors there is. Based on my experience, Saint Leo works hard to help students get the best education they can. I start my classes a week before everyone to study strictly Biology that entire week, and get a better understanding of what my major consists of. Saint Leo definitely has my best interest in mind.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure you are willing to go to a campus with not many students. Everyone will know you. You also have to be dedicated to your studies and attend classes, because your teacher will notice if you're not there.

    In three sentences

    Saint Leo is a beautiful, quaint campus located in Saint Leo, Florida. The buildings are nice and the scenery is even nicer. Everyone knows everyone and interaction among students never goes unencouraged, what with different social events, intramurals, and different student organizations.

    For people who enjoy the outdoors and seeing grass and lakes, Saint Low is right for you. The campus is beautiful; the oak trees and landscaping are to die for. Also, the size of the school, though slowly expanding, is very comfortable compared to some public schools.

    Bang for the buck

    Saint Leo is a private school, so it has private school tuition. Living so close to campus, I was able to live from home and avoid the cost of on campus living. However, the people I know who live on campus, some live just as close as me and others far away; they love it. Academically, Saint Leo had well known programs and challenges you too.

    What to do for fun

    commuters are welcome to all campus wife events. The difficult part is when organizations on campus have events at night. However, the school and some organizations offer events and free things during the day too. A mechanical bull and the blow up games have been on campus. Slushies, ice cream, and other free food are also offered from time to time. At Fall Family Festival, elephant rides were even available.

    Food and Dining

    As a commuter, a meal plan is not required. That being said, I have gone into the main dining area a few times. The food is great; it is buffet style. The only draw back for commuters and the main dining area is the price, $10 as of 2013. The Lion's Lair is more reasonable on price but it is not a buffet and there are limited options. However, it offers grilled items, deli items, snacks, drinks, and items needed for your dorm if you live on campus.

    Dorm Life

    I lice off campus but have stayed in the apartments for a week and loved it!

    Academic Rigor

    I am encouraged to go above and beyond and I am glad that the work load is tough. That way, I am prepared for a career bin my field of education.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always visit a prospective school. Saint Leo allows the equivalent to shadowing at a high school. If you live off campus, getting to school early for a close parking spot is important, but parking in the parking garage is fairly close too.

    At Saint Leo, you aren't wasting money. You actually learn a lot and don't feel like you are simply paying an incredible amount just to get a piece of paper that says you attended college for a specific amount of time. The professors are great! They grade your work fairly, rather than simply sticking a grade on something you submitted instead of actually reading and examining it.

    Go to class make sure you are on time and not late. Some teachers will let it slide but other will make you leave class. Make sure to do all your assignments every point counts and could help you out by making sure you pass by a point. Never trust financial aid to do their job right. There is always problems with the paperwork, communication, or just employee frustration. Make sure you have everything settled with them otherwise they will make you run around the campus finding your professors, your advisers, etc instead of picking a phone up to call them themselves.

    At St.Leo time is money and most classes you go to you have to be on time or not miss a certain number of classes otherwise you could fail based on attendance. Some classes are only taught by one teacher so if you need to repeat or are not respectful to that teacher you will be in trouble. Over all the teachers there are good teachers.
