Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • Lydia from Minooka, IL
  • I am a current student here

    St. Francis promotes all this personal attention that students receive here, but it is extremely untrue. There are SOME staff and faculty members that care about students, but most do not. The average class size is about 15-25, if teachers cared so much about students you would think they would at least know their students names. Out of all my years here I feel I only had 2 teachers that were passionate about the students. It seems that most employees here are miserable and honestly, most students are too.

    I love it here. It's very small, but the atmosphere is phenomenal. The teachers actually care about your well-being, are interested in your life, and want to be of as much help as possible. The campus also offers many fun clubs and organizations to be involved in.
