    I was offered a pretty great deal going in, which is the main reason why I decided to attend this school. Because it's a small school, it is easier for a student to take advantage of the different opportunities being offered.

    Overall I'm glad I attended this university. I can't see myself going anywhere else. I am currently a English-communication arts major and am so far enjoying (most) of the courses I have been taking. There are so many ways to get involved on campus. I personally think the school is a little small, and the class sizes are small as well, but I guess that's more of a pro than a con. My first two semesters were more than difficult, but now I am on the right track and doing better than ever. The tuition is pricy, but our school holds the infamous Baby Bake and Oyster Bake every year, i.e., a huge party our campus holds for Fiesta. It's worth it.

    I can honestly say that St. Mary's is worth every dollar! The price tag may seem big, but the University does an amazing job with financial aid. I'm an above average middle-class student and St. Mary's is taking care of 75% of my cost of attendance. Besides that, St. Mary's has everything you could ever need and it is all covered by tuition. They have a free gym with racquetball, basketball, dance studio and more, a fully equipped work out room, free tutoring, free laundry room, free projector, computer, camera, movie rentals, free sporting events, and if you decide to travel then that is covered by your tuition as well.

    Kinda sorta. They raise tuition every year and attach all these unnecessary fees to your tuition so you end up paying more. If you're still on insurance with your parents and it can cover visits to the student health clinic, waive the insurance. It's $514 you'll save your parents. Waive anything you can, and it might be a good idea to close out your bookstore account and use that money to rent them on Chegg. But getting a degree from there is actually pretty prestigious.
