Student Loans for University of St. Thomas Students

About University of St. Thomas Student Loans

student loansLocated in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, the University of St. Thomas is a Catholic university home to about 6,500 undergraduates. Named for St. Thomas Aquinas, the university is rooted in the Catholic faith and has ties to the Vatican: for those inclined to study abroad, the University has a campus on the west bank of the Tiber River in Rome, and has a relationship with the Holy See. For those who are less religiously interested, the University still has lots to offer; it’s located in two vibrant cities, and is a member of the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities, a consortium consisting of Hamline University, the College of St. Catherine, Augsburg College, and Macalester College.

Urban living is always relatively more expensive, and that is certainly something to keep in mind when living in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Being a college student automatically means you’re not supposed to be living in the lap of luxury; if you’re receiving University of St. Thomas financial aid, that’s further reason to be judicious with your spending. Coming up with a reasonable budget isn’t hard, especially not if you follow this one simple rule: if you don’t need it, don’t buy it. As with all rules, there are occasionally times where breaking it is appropriate, but keep that to a minimum.
