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.
Review Saint Martin's University
Saint Martin's is all about COMMUNITY. The core values are lived out in the lives of faculty and students alike. Everyone feels welcomed and known. The small class sizes allow for one on one with professors and extra help when needed. There are a variety of majors for all people. With a coffee shop located on campus, and some pretty great cafe food, you are sure to make Saint Martin's University feel like home.
I love the atmosphere it is very calming and friendly, the staff is absolutely amazing and has time do get to know every student instead of only know you by name or word association, it is an open campus but closed at the same time, as in it is open to all but closed off from the world where you cannot hear the cars passing by but instead see deer roaming the school grounds. There is many places you can go to relax or go to hang out with your friends. I would not change anything about this school except for the price, the price is high but this is a private university so it is about average for any other private university.
