Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College Reviews
This is only my third week at SMWC as an online student, but even after going to campus once and emailing and talking to professors, registrars, and my advisor I absolutely love it. Everyone strives to help you succeed and are really helpful and also very understanding. Everyone I know that has gone here was right! It is a beautiful amazing college. Everybody empowers each other and I’ve met some incredible folks.
This place is the perfect place to empower leaders. It breads strong, intelligent and capable leaders with a voice. SMWC absolutely changed my life and gave me opportunities I'm positive I wouldn't have had anywhere else. It's a setting designed to help students succeed. The smallness helps to give students more support from professors, faculty and staff and an easier time accessing resources. Town is just minutes away with plenty of things to do and places to go for a night out and away from homework. It provided me the opportunity to play college sports, make lifelong friends and launched me into a career I love just 2.5 months after graduation. Without a doubt the best decision of my life was to attend this college and I owe so much of my success to my alma mater and the faculty/staff who helped encourage, support and challenge me along the way. You will not regret the decision to attend Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College!
As the parent of a 2016 graduate of the college, I am very pleased with the quality of education she experienced while at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College. Because it is a small, private school, she had excellent personal attention from faculty, she was able to become a leader on campus, she learned how to think for herself, she felt encouraged to study abroad and participate in numerous service learning trips. We are both exceedingly pleased with the degree she earned, and the beautiful campus buildings, grounds and atmosphere is just icing on the cake!
