Saint Johns University

Collegeville, MNhttps://www.csbsju.edu
Saint John's University, in central Minnesota, is a Catholic school for men that partners with a nearby women's school, College of Saint Benedict. "Bennies" -- students at the women's college -- and "Johnnies" share academic programs and have access to resources on both campuses. The school's 1,800 undergrads are of all religions, although about 55% are Catholic. Popular options among the school's some 35 majors and 40 minors include global business leadership, biology, and accounting. Cheering on the Division III football team is a highlight of the campus experience. The school's former beloved coach, John Gagliardi, won more football games than any other college coach. Other fun traditions include a polar bear plunge during the frigid Minnesota winter and an annual Maple Syrup Festival. With a campus surrounded by forests and lakes, outdoor recreational activities are also popular. First-year students live in one of two residence halls on campus, and students can opt to participate in a living-learning community that combines residential life with educational engagement. Students praise the school's commitment to teaching the Catholic faith, and to providing a community within the church.
