Saint Martin’s University is one of the most magnificent places I have ever been to in my life. There is no other university I would want to get my Bachelor’s Degree at then here at SMU. I am currently a sophomore at SMU and my first year was amazing. I had some ups and downs but through those downs I was able to overcome all of them with the help from the resources provided at the institution and the amazing students and faculty there to support their fellow Saint. The university offers a variety of activities for their students from clubs, intramural sports, to study sessions, and many other events and activities. The academics and the educators are of top tier teaching. I always felt I could ask for help when I was struggling and never once thought i was getting a lack of education at SMU. overall, Saint Martin’s University is the school for me and I guarantee that there are many students out there who feel the same way.

Saint Martin's is a small community oriented college. Like all environments/locations, the people make the place. The quality of your experience at this university will very likely depend on the students you would choose to surround yourself with as well as your involvement on campus (clubs, attending events, etc.) Because of the small student body, even freshmen can obtain leadership positions on campus.
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.
