Saint Mary's is an amazing community to learn in. Everyone will take the time to learn about you and why you are here. All the Professors teach because they are passionate about their students, not because they are looking to benefit themselves. The classes are small and personal, and soon everyone will become a familiar face on campus! Great facilities and housing as well. Winona is a great city with lots of things to do indoors and out.

I am in an online program that is overall a positive experience. My one complaint is the number of times the professor has had a dead link or other technology related issue. My expectation is the online applications are tested prior to courses starting. Especially for an online-only program, it should be seamless and run as if the students were in a classroom. It is reminiscent of an instructor who can't get av equipment going for a class and sit watching them fumble with the powerpoint slide...
Saint Mary's University really cares about its students. There is always a teacher or other member of staff ready to help you. Perhaps its a small town midwestern thing, but everyone here is really nice. It's not unheard of for someone to strike up a conversation with you at lunchtime or to chat with friends you run into in the plaza. The small class sizes are both a pro and a con. Teachers know your name and are able to give you the help you need but it's also very apparent if you've missed class.
