St. Mary's University - Texas Reviews
St. Mary's University is a great school! This school is small/medium sized, but very friendly. All my professors are very helpful and care about the students, along with their future plans. The university has many connections to help students find jobs and/or internships.
St. Mary's University delivers a diverse, loving, small-town atmosphere. The professors truly care about you and are more than willing to work one-on-one whenever you need. Also, the housing on campus is phenomenal. There are 2 nearly brand new living areas and the amenities associated with these are incredible! It is easy to feel comfortable and cared for because everyone is extremely friendly and approachable. Go Rattlers!
I am a biology major and commuter student at St. Mary's University. I have just completed my freshman year. StMU has helped me strongly in the realm of academics. The professors are incredibly understanding and approachable, and the advisers are very understanding. The overall academic life at StMU is what gives the university their reputation. Officer hours, and free tutoring provides students with the resources they need to be successful in any course. Regarding other aspects of student life, the campus is very lacking in diversity appears to favor local student, many of which are from similar backgrounds, and opportunities to connect on campus are lacking.
