I graduated from SMC in 2014 and couldn't be happier with how the curriculum and professors prepared me to be a professional. The college puts a huge emphasis on critical thinking, public speaking, and information literacy that has set me apart in job interviews and selection for office projects. After talking to friends who attended other colleges, I definitely was challenged to achieve more as an undergraduate student. Now as a graduate student pursuing a master's in International Relations, I was much less intimidated by the transition to graduate level work than my classmates. Additionally, the community is very welcoming and the campus is beautiful.
