I absolutely love SMC! It is a beautiful campus with many opportunities. We've had a problem recently with some hate-filled actions since the most recent election, however with more educational programs and talks and panels, we've seen less of it and it definitely does not represent the majority of the student body.

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!
Saint Michael's College provides a welcoming community that feels safe, inviting, and overall loving. The professors truly care about the success of their students, and you are more than just a number. At St. Mikes you get to choose your career path, however you also get to take Liberal Studies Curriculum which helps widen your education to more than just your major. The only thing I would change about Saint Mikes it their parking situation. It is not the safest to have first and second years having to walk a mile to get their car. Also the housing system should be run by more than one person to be more efficient.
