    You get free access to a lot of things like the gym (workout machines, rock climbing wall, rec courts, yoga classes, etc), the waterfront (including the college's beach and equipment such as kayaks, sail boats and paddle boats), laundry (soap too!) and that sort of jazz. There is also more individual and one-on-one time with professors (in and out of the classroom).

    Being a public school, the cost of attending St.Maryâ??s is similar to the other public school in Maryland. The idea of the school being a public honors college is often mentioned during admissions. This basically means that you get a small private school for the cost of a public school. The location of the school is unique, but outside of that the school is what you make it. If you hate the experience of a small school, or you just donâ??t like the campus, the cost wonâ??t be worth it.

    The school is prestigious if that's what you like but it is much more expensive than any other school in the state.

    St. Mary's is expensive, even for a state school--it's one of our least things about the school, and we're working hard to lower tuition, but for now we're probably going to stay on the high side. (Sorry, folks.) That being said, the school doesn't skip on amenities, or education--the professors, fellowships and internships available are really excellent. Check out student chatter in your major field to find the top professors and know that you *will* get the chance to take classes with them, unlike some schools, or check out our career development center to work on your resume and score internships.
