From Saint Martin's University

Founded in 1895, Saint Martin's is a private, liberal arts university located on 380-acres in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Saint Martin's is rooted in the Benedictine philosophy of education that focuses on four core values: Faith, Reason, Service and Community.

We provide a values-based education, a commitment to the individual student, and development of the whole person. From engineering to science, business to social work, nursing to education, our students are empowered to pursue a lifetime of learning and achievement.

At a 12:1 student to faculty ratio, our Saints receive an individualized education. We pride ourselves on making higher education affordable with over 20 million in scholarships awarded each year, and 100% of our students receiving financial aid.

With a diverse campus of over 26 faiths, and 52% of our students being ethnically diverse, we welcome and value all of our Saint's community. At Saint Martin's we think, serve, play, and live with heart!
