    Although I do get homesick every now and then, Saint Mary's really does feel like a second home. The young women you begin to call your friends act just like your sisters. We say that Saint Mary's is just a big sorority and we really mean it. From the teachers to the student body you never feel out of place.

    I love being in South Bend. Saint Mary's offers a variety of activities to get involved and meet new people. I can honestly say that I have made some great friends. The unique clubs, activities, and organizations provide something for everyone to enjoy. I was also lucky to find a job on campus that allowed me to make great friends. Furthermore, the close proximity of Notre Dame contributes to the social scene.

    Not only are the professors excellent, but the students are wonderful. It is an all girl school and here we are all sisters. And life couldn't be better than having the best of both worlds with Notre Dame right across the street. St. Mary's has many programs available, but if something doesn't catch one's eye she can always go over to Notre Dame where St. Mary's students are more than welcome. Life on, and off campus, is really enjoyable. I am a St. Mary's Woman and I am loving it.
