SMU gives many scholarships. The community is close-knit. My classes were small, and there was plenty of support. I had excellent professors!

After graduation, I got a job in my field and was able to be successful because of SMU's strong academics. Seven years later, I still love my profession!

At Saint Martin's University everyone is very accepting. The social events that the school offers are amazing, everyone is very involved. I have so much fun living on campus, spending time with the staff members, and engaging in the athletic events. Saint Martin's is a school that is very involved with their students, they genuinely care about the wellbeing of their students. I have never seen or been apart of a school that cares so much about their students. Even though Saint Martin's is amazing I believe that they could offer more ethnically diverse events.
I love Saint Martin's University. I really feel like part of the community. There is an abundance of resources for the students to be successful. There are constantly student activities and various clubs to keep students busy. The food is decent which is nice since I live on campus and eat there for most of my meals. The courses I have taken so far have been very entertaining and the professors are easily accessible. I have met a variety of different people from many different backgrounds. I enjoy the diversity. From some of the people I have talked too, I have learned a few things that could change. It would be nice and convenient for some students if there was child care. Not only would it be helpful for the parents, but would provide an opportunity for various majors to have access to children for potential studies or observation. Overall however, I love Saint Martins. They provide many scholarship opportunities to make the school an affordable place to go.
