What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
This university takes education seriously, but also manages to be very student-friendly. The small size allows for strong community bonds, and the location in the middle of the city is very convenient for all endeavors. The university sticks to its title of Catholic, and offers a strongly orthodox education and community.
