B.B.A in Sports Administration ’17

M.S. in Sports Administration ’18

Graduated

St. Thomas gave me the opportunity to meet very successful people in the sports industry that started exactly where I did, which showed me anything is possible. I also got the chance to graduate with my bachelor’s degree in three years and immediately start my master’s degree; and through it all I was able to play softball.

Bachelor of Arts in English ’17

Graduated

While at St. Thomas University, I participated in groundbreaking autism research. Research of that caliber isn’t available to undergraduate students at other universities. It was exciting to work on something that could possibly help millions of people with autism. I credit the university’s undergraduate research programs and its professors for the year-long fellowship I was recently awarded at the National Institute of Health (NIH).

Master of Arts in Criminal Justice

Graduate Student, Women's Soccer

St. Thomas University has a really big support system. It reminds me of a family. I’m in the criminal justice program which exposes students to real world experiences, and the professors are always available whenever I need them. The ease of accessibility to faculty and staff is something other universities can’t offer.

I left my home country of Wales to study in the United States because I wanted to experience different cultures. At St. Thomas University I have been able to grow and learn from its diverse student body, and experience different cultures.

Senior, Women's Volleyball

Everyone at St. Thomas University feels welcome and inspired to be the best they can be in the classroom and on the field. Being that it is a smaller university, everyone genuinely takes the time to get to know you, and help you with whatever you may need. It’s a caring close-knit family environment that has helped me grow academically and athletically.

B.A. in Communication Arts ’11

M.A in Communication Arts ’18

Graduated

At St. Thomas I was given the opportunity to play tennis and receive academic and sports scholarships that covered 100 percent of my tuition. I was very fortunate because it weren’t for St. Thomas I don’t know if I would’ve kept studying. STU also provided a sense of community and unity unlike any other university. The professors know you by name and you form a strong bond with other students.

B.S. in Biology ’14

M.B.A ’18

Graduated

At STU, I feel like more than just another student. The teacher to student ratio allows for a more personalized experience. With the help of my professors, I was able to attain a competitive internship with the United States Department of Agriculture and compete in international finance competitions, which will give me an advantage when applying for full-time positions once I graduate with my MBA from STU.

Luisa Maria De Souza

Bachelor of Science in Biology '13

Graduated

During my undergraduate career at St. Thomas University, I took advantage of the unique research opportunities at the school of science, which reinforced my interest in medicine. From the moment I entered St. Thomas University I had a connection with the faculty and staff; a connection I wouldn’t have had at a big university. If it weren’t for the support of my teachers and staff members at St. Thomas, I wouldn’t be what I am today – a medical student at Penn State.
