Saint Mary's University of Minnesota Reviews
St. Mary's University of Minnesota is located in a beautiful part of Winona, Minnesota. The nature scenery is amazing, but unfortunately there aren't many places surrounding the university to walk or bike to. It is 10 minutes from downtown Winona, which is a cute little town. There are buses that transport students to and from downtown. The atmosphere is very conservative and optimistic. All of professors care about each of their students as individuals. For the most part, the students of Saint Mary's are kind and pretty social. There isn't much diversity, but it isn't too bad. The dorms are all nice and close to classes so it makes it convenient to wake up and go to class 5-10 minutes before it starts. As far as parties, there are house parties and small gatherings in the dorms. Although campus safety makes it difficult for people to throw parties, it makes for a very safe environment on campus.
So far, I'm really enjoying my experience at Saint Mary's University! I am an online student and the school provided me with an iPad, which is so great. The class structure is easy to understand and the professors are typically very quick to respond to any questions or concerns. I do wish we were able to take more than one class at a time, but I can understand why the university does not allow it.
I love the wellness center. St.Mary's is one of the most understanding schools about mental illness and you can see a counselor for free unlimited times. I see someone once a week since I started school and it's greatly helped. This school is also very helpful if you have academic disabilities! Everyone is so understanding, I was scared of having a bias against me but I didn't feel that at all from any one of my professors. The only sucky thing is that the wellness center doctor isn't open on the weekend so you would have to take the bus to the urgent care down by Winona state, 10-15 min away. I had the flu one weekend and had to do this. Also, if you're sick you have to get a note from the DR or the wellness center excusing you from class, but it's so hard to get out of bed and walk yourself to the wellness center to do this, I wish you could just email or call.
