What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
The College of Saint Scholastica has not only helped me to feel confident about my future, but this school has helped me appreciate education, helped me to discover who I am, and helped me see that it is possible to do what I love. After attending one year at this college, I have found a new appreciation for education and have found that if I work hard enough, I can really achieve my dreams and goals. I know I can complete a degree on time here which has helped me to not focus on how many years of schooling I have left, but has helped me to take in the college lifestyle and to take every opportunity I have!
Rachel from Duluth, MN
The college of Saint Scholastica has provided me a small community setting hosting roughly 4,000 students in total, allowing for incoming freshman to have an easier time with meeting other students. With a 14 to 1 ratio between students and professors the class sizes tended to be small and provided good learning experiences and easy communication with professors. My freshman experience was also enlightened by joining clubs and organizations which helped to find like-minded people to interact with, allowing me to conclusively state that I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a freshman at CSS!
