My years at St Leo’s have been the best years of my life and would highly recommend anyone looking to stay at college to choose St Leo’s. There are so many benefits to college life that I think a lot of people undervalue. One of the biggest benefits is obviously the convenience. I live right across the road from the buildings where most of my classes are held and the rest are a short walk away. I also save a lot of time with meals, cleaning, etc.
These are all great things but by far the biggest benefit is the community. When you’re living with so many other people, experiencing very similar things, it’s very easy to make really close mates. There’s also always tons of inter-college events going on so you’re never bored. Lastly, college is especially supportive in many ways. Tutorials are offered for each university subject, the staff are all very friendly and there’s always somebody to talk to if you need advice.
