A 'Wonderful' campus or online experience for women! The staff, Sister's, and fellow classmates are always willing to give a helping hand. The beautiful off-road campus compels you to become one with yourself and future goals.
Tips for prospective students
Taking the time to do an 'On Campus Visit' before applying to Saint Mary's will help you get an understanding of what the experience will truely be like. It will also give you the understanding of the rich history on how Saint Mary's came about and originated from.
Academic Rigor
Academics can be achieved by attending classes on campus, online, or a combination of both.
Dorm Life
Dorm Life offers the convenience of a 24 hour computer lab, student lounge area, a student center that includes a game room and fitness room.
Food and Dining
A dining hall is open for students to be able to dine for full meals on campus. There is also a cafe which is comparable to Starbucks for the student needing their coffee or smoothie 'pick-me-ups'!
What to do for fun
The campus offers tennis courts, basketball courts, the student center, and it's beautiful grounds to be able to enjoy while classes are not being attended. Not to mention, downtown Terre Haute within a 15 minute drive.
Bang for the buck
Saint Mary's is located on the outskirts of Terre Haute, Indiana. Even though you may be living on campus there are plenty of food choices, entertainment options, and fellow colleges near by. Including Indiana State University, Ivy Tech, and Rose Hulman.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Ring Day is a tradition the campus celebrates every year for students who have earned their Saint Mary-of-the-Woods ring. Check out the college's web-site for more information!
Great for these types of students
Students who want to be able to interact with fellow classmates and make life long friendships.
Clubs and Activities
Saint Mary's offers a great selection of clubs including Anime, Dance Team, Drama, Math, and many more!
Campus Safety
Saint Mary's campus offers security in the form of Security Guards and security cameras that are manned by actual guards. Safety of the women on campus is a must!

Am learning a lot
I have learned things that I use on a daily basis. The classes that I have taken have make me a well rounded student and desirable potential employee.
Am enjoying being here
I love this school and I would not have done it any other way if I had the chance to. It's a beautiful campus, and the people there are fantastic. The equine facility is also just amazing.
Bang for the buck
The quality of education that you get is well worth it. The services that you have to use at you disposal while you are a student and the ones that you have available after graduation are incredibly valuable. The career center alone will bend over backwards to make sure that you have the chance to get internships and help you get a job.
Tips for prospective students
Always ask if it is possible to do an overnight and sit in on a class or two. The most important class to sit in on would be a major class if you know what your intended major will be. Stay in contact with the admissions office and don't be afraid to ask questions. If an overnight is possible, stay in contact with the hosting student. That way you have a student that you will know as well when you start in the fall.
Great for these types of students
This is an all women's school, and is perfect for the student that does not want to get lost in the crowd. Since SMWC is so small all of your teachers know you and remember you. A student that has struggled in high school wont fall between the crack because professors make sure that the student has used all of the tools possible and more.

Saint Mary of the Woods College is a beautiful school. They have a strong foundation both academically and spiritually. They have many amazing opportunities and help each student be successful.
Tips for prospective students
Bring little sentimental touches to make your room feel homier. Also I suggest bringing a mirror, especially if you have to use the community bathroom, so you do not have to keep running to the bathroom to check an outfit or fix your hair.
Academic Rigor
Challenging fields. Great resources though.
Dorm Life
It can get a little boring especially on weekends but I read a book, watch a movie, or plan a trip with a friend.
Food and Dining
They provide a great variety of food but it is just dining hall food.
What to do for fun
The wings in the dorm always try to have events to keep you busy. Campus Life is always arranging activities and performers to come. There are a lot of dances, parties, and movie nights both here at SMWC and at the nearby colleges. The town nearby is big and has a lot to do. Plus the college has a fitness center and some great resources.
Bang for the buck
Great teachers, great classes, and a great environment.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Gorgeous buildings with great history. Saint Mother Theodore Guerin founded this school in 1840 so we have a great history.
Great for these types of students
Willing to go to an all girls school.
Clubs and Activities
They have a lot of great clubs, I guarantee you will find something that interests you. And it is really easy to start your own club!
Campus Safety
Very few problems. Campus security does a good job and they are super nice. They will even help fix flat tires!
