St. Mary's College of Maryland Reviews

The best school for academics! Small classes allow me to work closely with my professors. Plus, all the faculty are extremely skilled in their fields and are more than willing to share their knowledge with students. They are attentive and encouraging. The arts programs are also fantastic, especially music and theater. And because the school is small, there are more opportunities to participate in various arts productions. The only downfalls would be the cost and the location. St. Mary's is more expensive than other public Maryland schools, and although the St. Mary's River is beautiful - there is really nothing to do in this rural spot.

The campus is amazing. Nothing beats a close-knit community right on the water! Every school I visited, I continuously thought to myself "this is great... but it's not St. Mary's." Everything is perfect about St. Mary's. The small class sizes, the dedicated teachers, and it's the most affordable waterfront place you can find! The only red flag I see from St. Mary's is the limited majors. Lucky for me, I am studying to be a teacher in the St. Mary's five year teaching program. However, not everyone can be so lucky. The educational side to St. Mary's may not be for everyone, but the campus is to die for!
I've loved attending St. Mary's! It's such a wonderful environment to learn and succeed in. Every faculty member I've interacted with has been a friend, mentor, and supportive team to all their students. There's plenty of diversity, things to do, and interesting classes to take.
