Beautiful Campus

I looked at going here for College. It has a beautiful campus, and is in a great neighborhood. As a freshman I was only able to get into Theology and French, so I decided to bail.

Located in the heart of St. Paul and deeply ingrained in the history of the city, the college of St. Catherine is known for the beautiful campus and stellar academics. If you are having a bad day I suggest taking a turn around the English Garden. Is the day rainy? Stop by the Catherine G. Murphy gallery for some of... More

Weird atmosphere. Beautiful campus. I actually toured here when considering colleges to attend. However the students there are a little odd. Understandably since it's an all woman school. Students were boy crazy! would 'spy' on boys from nearby campus.

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.

The campus is gorgeous! We attended a concert at the O'Shaughnessy Theatre. The theatre is just the right size so no seat is bad. We could see and hear everything perfectly! Our only complaint is that 30 minutes into the concert it got very warm and a bit uncomfortable. Other than that, we had a great time!
