Well I am a transfer sophomore and this fall will be my first year attending Saint Martin's University. I haven't attended any classes yet but the tour around campus was very cool. The architecture of this school and the overall scenery when you're walking around is very neat. I'm staying at the Burton hall apartment this year and my campus guide told me that these apartments here at Saint Martins have some of the biggest dorms in the western hemisphere. I guarantee that you will love the cafeteria here, it provides a huge variety of different foods. All dishes are very good and the cafeteria provide a lot of healthy, organic meals for students. It even provides brunch every weekend.

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.
