When I first step onto University of Saint Joseph, I automatically felt at home and like this was a place I could spend my college years. University of Saint Joseph to me is a welcoming community when you go there the people are so friendly and nice and will help you around if you don't know where to go. What I really liked about University of Saint Joseph is the academic aspect of the school. For example, I liked how the nursing program had a new lab built in with fake dummies that you could work on and practice medical processors on without actually hurting a real human being, I though that was cool because most schools don't get an opportunity to have that at their college and plus i never saw anything like that before in a science lab. One of my memorable experiences when I was touring University of Saint Joseph is how friendly the people were it made me feel at home and also, their mascot is really funny.
