University of Mary Reviews
The University of Mary prioritizes the formation of the whole person through friendships among faculty and students, challenging academics, and a rich spiritual life. One of my favorite parts about my time as a student was getting to know my professors. They were radically available to their students and took time to get to know me. The administration, faculty, and staff love the students and serve the academic, spiritual, and personal needs of those students. I am so grateful for my education at the University of Mary!
I have completed two years here at the University of Mary and overall, my experience has been amazing. They have wonderful professors who not only truly care about you, but are also some of the most intelligent people in their fields of study. The friends I have made here have impacted my life many times over what I expected when I first applied. I just finished one of their study abroad programs and it also far exceeded my expectations, but the college showed consistency with the amazing professors and the thought and care put forth in the academic program there. Really the only thing that I can complain about is that the college is growing almost faster than the campus can keep up.
University of Mary is an amazing school! The faculty are more than willing to accommodate to people's needs. The facilities are very nice and well-kept. The university sits on top of a hill giving a great view of the valley, city, and Missouri River.
