Overview

An International, Multicultural Haven for Diversity in Education

Florida's St. Thomas University has students enrolled from more than 70 countries around the world, with many different cultural backgrounds. The university takes pride in having a student body that includes men and women from a wide variety of racial, socio-economic, ethnic, religious, and national identities. STU adheres to the traditional liberal arts goal of exposing students to diverse cultures to expand their intellectual horizons and analyze the differences between people.

The Office of Student Affairs assists multicultural organizations on campus that enable students to maintain and strengthen their cultural identities while staying connected to the university through campus-wide activities.

Dual Enrollment Program Gives High School Students a Jump Start on a College Education

St. Thomas University's dual enrollment program gives high school juniors and seniors with a minimum GPA of 3.0 the opportunity to take college-level courses and earn college credits while they are still attending high school.

Dual enrollment courses are taught at participating high schools by St. Thomas University professors and/or high school professors that have been approved by the university. Courses vary among high schools, but they are the equivalent of St. Thomas undergraduate courses, and all credits received are accepted by STU and are usually transferrable to other colleges.

Students enrolled in the dual enrollment program are automatically admitted to St. Thomas University upon graduation from high school and completion of admissions paperwork.

New Campus Expansions Bring Lasting Impact for Students

Two new facilities on the campus of St. Thomas University are expanding opportunities and educational experiences for students. The Fernandez Family Center for Leadership and Wellness is an athletic and educational hub that serves as the home to the university's sports administration programs, the School of Leadership Studies, and the volleyball and basketball teams.

The Carnival Cruise Lines Science and Technology Building offers undergraduate students a dramatic increase in research abilities and unique science programs such as the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) FELLOWS cohorts, which offers selected minority students the chance to pursue majors in biology, chemistry, and mathematics.

The new facilities and academic programs at St. Thomas University expand the school's mission to help students develop skills they can use to bring about positive change in their local communities.

General Education Requirements Facilitate Lifelong Learning

St. Thomas University has a well-designed curriculum of general education requirements that let students select from a wide variety of courses that support value-oriented education. Humanities courses develop skills in written communications, while fostering in students an appreciation for fine arts, foreign language studies, and masterpieces of literature. The natural world and quantitative reasoning classes employ scientific methods and technology to help students explore the material world.

Philosophy emphasizes the "foundational wisdom of human reason," and the culture and society requirement strengthens powers of judgment and analysis by examining great achievements of the past and present. Religious studies courses examine the phenomenon of religious experience, and the Catholic identity requirements help students develop an understanding of the Catholic intellectual and artistic heritage.

Engaging Community Activities Enrich Life beyond the Classroom

St. Thomas offers students many types of activities and organizations to engage their minds and hearts, providing opportunities to interact with other students and participate in university life. Athletic events, student government, service and theme clubs, concerts, cookouts, the campus literary magazine and TV station, exciting speakers, and worship services all contribute to the welcoming sense of community at STU.

The Florida campus is conveniently located between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, and students can readily explore the rich cultural diversity and ecological uniqueness of the area while preparing for a life of personal and professional leadership.
