What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
A very warm and supportive atmosphere. A small campus, with very involved faculty and a close community. Comes with most of the benefits of the larger school, Notre Dame, across the way, but also with the drawbacks of stereotypes from Domers.
Class of 2015
Saint Mary's College has given me so many opportunities, not only have I come to learn more about myself but I have also found who I am as a women. Saint Mary's is small and there is always one on one attention with your professors. It is a great place to be and everyone is so helpful and wants you to succeed.
