What Students Are Saying

3.73 Average Rating
best thing about the school will always be the diversity of religion, culture and way of life. although it's a jesuit school, it accomodates everyone equally, matter fact, it has a muslim prayer space! i like the school but i detest the space area. but thinking about it, being that it's a school in a major city, they are a decent size.

saint peter's college is a small campus whose main tagline is education. one student at a time. personally, i think that spc follows this tagline. the classes are small and the teachers generally care.
