Great University to attend. Great programs in Nursing, Education, and the Arts. My Sister graduated from SCU with a BA in Social Work. She just loved the campus and the wonderful Professors.

This is an excellent liberal arts school on a beautiful urban campus. There is a sister campus in the Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, close to the Mississippi River. The Saint Paul campus is close to shopping districts, theatres, banks, etc.

Beautiful parklike campus. There are some guided tours with students giving a brief history of some of the buildings. Check out the architecture of the chapel. Enjoy the pond and relax in the shade under a tree.

The O'Shaugnessy offers top-notch entertainment, the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery has interesting art and the student center has everything from computers and coffee shops to a lovely ballroom, but even if you are not attending an event, simply strolling the campus provides an enchanting experience.

Last attended a concert at the 1800 seat O'Shaughnessy Theater. Beautiful landscaped grounds, lovely chapel. There are several lovely classic college buildings at the nation's largest Catholic Women's college.
