    Probably a little overpriced, but there are high qualtity professors, most have at least a masters degree in selected field. A new recreactional center is in progress of being built and will be finished by Spring 2015 and that will be very very nice to have

    While it does seem costly to attend, I strongly suggest you apply here. Saint Marys does everything in its power to help you get financial aid through scholarships they will sponsor, loans, and financial planning. The Career center is a great resource for students who want help planning their career or internships which I highly recommend you use. Overall, every penny you put towards educating yourself is returned twice fold with the skills you gain to help you for the rest of your life.

    It is expensive to go here but you are paying for the quality education you will receive while attending Saint Mary's. There are so many resources offered here to assist students who are struggling and professors here are friendly and helpful. Plus, you get to graduate in four years in a time where most students are going to graduate in 5-6 years in other schools.

    Saint Mary's is very expensive, however the one-on-one experience you get with your professors surpasses whatever you got in high school. It is very common for students to have lunch or coffee with their professors, to talk about class problems or even personal problems. The professors of SMC are dedicated to help you succeed.
