Am learning a lot
I AM LEARNING A LOT AT ST LEO AND THE PROFESSORS ARE REALLY HELPFUL AND WANT YOU TO SUCEED
Am enjoying being here
I LOVE THE ENVIRONMENT AND THE STUDENTS ARE REALLY NICE. THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW TO DO EVERY WEEKEND.
Bang for the buck
THE TUTION IS EXPENSIVE BUT THE EDUCATION IS DEFINATELY WORTH IT
Tips for prospective students
TRY TO DO YOUR BEST IN HIGH SCHOOL AND COME TO SCHOOL WITH A MIND TO STUDY. THE PROFESSORS GIVE A LOT OF HOMEWORK, BUT THE CLASSES ARE SMALL AND YOU LEARN A LOT BETTER WITH ONE ON ONE.

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.
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.
Great for these types of students
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.

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.
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.
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.
Great for these types of students
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.

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
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.
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!
Dorm Life
I have never heard a bad dorm story, therefore, I rate it a 5 star experience.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
Clubs and Activities
Saint Leo offers a wide range of activities.
Greek Life
Many organizations are available to pledge, including the National Honors Society as well as many Greek houses on campus.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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!
Great for these types of students
Students who want to learn, don't mind working hard in order to get the job they would like to pursue, having responsibility, good time-management skills in order to balance life, attending all classes, getting good grades.

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

Am learning a lot
With the small class sizes and the amazing Advisers and Professors; I am glad to be attending this University.
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!
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!
Tips for prospective students
Check this school out. It is an amazing school and you'll love the person you become here.
Great for these types of students
Business, Science, and Criminal Justice.
