What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
I would advise high school students still making college decisions to start early and make a list of what you want and try your hardest not to compromise on anything you put on your list. Also if you know you want to go to a private college Minnesota Private College Week is a great chance for you to experience all the private colleges in Minnesota you wish to see in a short period of time. For students who just arn't sure check out both types of schools and make sure you tour a lot it's one of the greatest ways to get a feel for the campus.
Join a club - there are tons on campus and they are a great way to get to know people and get involved in campus life.

Get as involved as you possibly can! Meet new people and don't be afraid to put yourself out there the first couple weeks. Everyone is going through the same adjustments as you are.
Mirella from Burnsville, MN
Get involved on campus in order to meet new people and try new activities, but make time to just hang out with friends and explore the area too. Use the Box Office to get discounted tickets to pro sports games, movies and concerts. Finally, keep your dorm room door open as much as possible in order to meet new people.
Molly from St. Paul, MN
Students should make sure to get involved in extracurriculars right away. It helps with the adjustment to college life. Everyone is going through the same thing. The more activities students do, the more connected they will feel. It eventually will feel like a second home. Students should just put themselves out there. They'd be surprised how easy it is to make friends. In classes, students should ask questions, get help from professors, and speak with other students about their work. The more students do, the more they will get out of it. Students should make sure to stay healthy though and get rest amongst their activities and work. None of it will be worth it if students can't function properly.

Come visit!! Apply for scholarships and get involved when you get here.
Amanda from Onamia, MN
Work hard your last semester of high school. Just because you have been accepted doesn't mean you should be done in high school, plus it will make for an easier transition into college. Research schools and go on tours. Come to an overnight here; they are a blast and completely free.
My tip would be to come out and check out the campus! Take a tour, meet some students, attend a game!! College should be the best time of your life, and with St. Thomas it could be!
Jessica from Coon Rapids, MN
My main tip would be to visit campuses that you are interested. It's the way I found the college that was right for me. Do research on prospective schools, and keep your grades up in high school.
