  • Our main campus is in a quiet neighborhood about 10 minutes from the downtowns of Minneapolis or St. Paul, where you'll find cultural events, professional sports, internships, and employment opportunities.
  • We boast a student-faculty ratio of 15:1 and an average class size of 21. More than 95 percent of our students receive financial aid. Institutional scholarships range from $4,000-$19,000 per year.
  • A member of MN Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and NCAA Division III, we offer 11 men's and 11 women's varsity teams. Our teams boast regional and national athletic excellence with outstanding academic achievement.
  • Tommie freshmen “March through the Arches" to celebrate the beginning college. After commencement new graduates walk through the arches once again and enter the next phase of their lives.
  • You’ll benefit from an exceptional commitment to technology on campus. There are outstanding science and engineering labs, television and editing studios, four libraries and several computer labs.
  • St. Thomas students and alumni cheered for their first Tommie sports teams more than 100 years ago, and the noise has never died down.

We're the perfect balance between large and small, teacher and student, liberal arts education and get-a-job professional preparation. You'll find new ways of learning (an engineering class, for example, that studies dynamic forces using circus equipment). We balance the resources of a large university, like world-class faculty and the benefits of a small college, like the fact that every class is personally taught by exceptional faculty. No teaching assistants here. And you'll find a campus large enough to offer tons of clubs, activities and sports - and small enough so you can be a big part of whatever interests you.
