Review Saint Mary's University of Minnesota
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.
Upper division classes have been a great experience for me. Professors are usually well-experienced and enthusiastic about what they teach. I rarely give a bad professor review for upper division classes. As for generals, you get a bad class every now and again but what liberal arts school doesn't have that problem? I still think generals are a great way to explore what you like and what you're good at. The variety of courses offered depends on the major.. for majors that have a larger number of students enrolled, there are more options. Class size is 12:1 student to teacher ratio and is great for anyone who needs the option to ask questions in class and likes to participate in class. It's a little harder to just 'skate by' at SMUMN, but I think that's a good thing. I've experienced all types of class styles at SMUMN, from lecture to mostly group-work and student lead presentations.
