    Saint Joes looks good to employers and they know that. But the social work program is not about the education you receive, it's about if you can make it through their program's rigorous requests. If you're an adult learner. Expect to sit in classes for 8 hrs on a Saturday with no breaks except a lunch break where they may make you attend a "mandatory" meeting instead of having that break. Expect to get bad internships that someone with their AS degree can do, and they act like it's ok. If you say anything bad, they will come against you. If you advocate for yourself no one will listen. The senior class had to get a petition together just to be heard recently. I wish I went to a dif school but I'm too far in to change now. :(

    Be ready to work hard. College is very different than high school. It is easy to get caught up in the large amount of free time you have. The University of Saint Joseph is a small university which is great because it allows you to have a better relationship with your professors. They can and will help you succeed.

    Come and visit the school. Even if you cannot go on an official tour walk by on a class day. You can stop anyone over and ask about what life is like here. Also research the school and your intended major. If you do not know what major you want yet search a bunch of the options here and talk to people of different majors. Also perfect your work ethic now. From day one each grade counts towards your future. You don't have much time to figure out how to study if you fail a lot of the first major assignments. Most majors hold a specific letter grade and GPA requirement. And if you do Nursing you get only one retake for a science course and one for a Nursing course. So if you waste that early it's easier to flunk out.

    Life at USJ (or at any school, frankly) is predominately what you make it. There are so many opportunities for personal growth and learning but you have to take the initiative to pursue them. If all you want to do is party for four years, you will be bored here and should consider another school. If you plan to sit in your room and watch Netflix all day, expecting friends, fun, good grades, and opportunities to come to you, you will find that you hate it here. Your experience is only ever going to be what you make it and you should expect nothing less than this.

    The University of Saint Joseph is not only for people who are catholic, you can be any religion. If you learn well in your classroom now in high school, I recommend you go to a smaller campus like this one so you can still obtain one on one attention from teachers. In addition, having all girls isn't so bad. There's less distractions and the University of Hartford is so close by you can go visit people there whenever you want!
