If you are looking for a warm, welcoming community to call home for college, this is the place! Every tour guide at any school is going to talk about how nice the people are, but here it is actually true. Everyone holds doors for each other and smiles. Not to mention there is a very high percentage of students who regularly take part in community service so that also speaks to what kind of people attend this school. All the professors are very kind and understanding and are always just an email away (they will answer!). As far as parties go there is always something happening on Saturdays, but if that is not your thing it is very easy to find other chill people to hang out with who enjoy card games, playing guitars, watching movies, etc. The academic buildings are always accessible if you want to watch movies on a big screen. Overall, this is an amazing school and I am so happy I came here!
The professors and variety/quality of classes here are excellent. Professors genuinely care about students and are very helpful and available if you need extra help. So far, I've only had one professor that I was not keen on. For the most part, my professors have been really passionate and knowledgable about their subject, and are just generally really nice people too. I've really enjoyed the classes I've taken here so far. As a liberal arts college, there are plenty of interesting and unique classes that you wouldn't find at a large state school. Course registration is a little stressful, but that's expected.
I cannot imagine going to school anywhere else. For me, it's the perfect size (not too big, not too small), the location is great (close to a big city, but surrounded by nature too), the professors are really passionate and engaging, course options are interesting and expansive, there's lots to get involved in, and, best of all, everyone here is extremely friendly. St. Mike's is like one big family, and although you see people you know everywhere, you're constantly meeting new people too. Overall, it's a really happy, easygoing environment full of great people.
