What Students Are Saying

3.60 Average Rating
So far, although I am in the middle of my application process, I have found the staff at U of Mary to be very helpful. I have already been in contact with them asking questions about the admissions process and other things I need to know, and I have always been treated with much respect and kindness. I truly hope that this is how all the staff is when I get up there.
