I really love going to this school! The academics are great and is more comfortable due to smaller classroom size. The professors actually want to help you and know you by name. The only thing I think needs work is acceptance of more religious views rather than just Catholicism. I know that I go to a catholic school, but there is no place where you get to learn about other religious views and have a more open mind.

Overall, the University of Mary is a great school. They have a very strong health sciences program. I enjoy most of my professors and I absolutely love my classmates and friends. I am an athlete here and you have to really work hard to manage your time between school and a sport. The professors work hard to connect with you and so does all the staff. Oh! You can't forget the most amazing very that you get over looking the river, and star gazing at night is great. The community of Bismarck is so welcoming and really supportive of the school.
What I love most about this college are the teachers. This place has nothing but the best education and teachers running it. All of these teachers love what they are doing and are passionate at what they are doing. Thanks to these teachers I have had the privilege meeting have more than prepared me for the real word and big job opportunities. This university is also very welcoming to everyone. I didn't have the best score before entering college but that didn't matter to them, they knew what I was capable of and didn't look down upon me. Thanks to them and believing in me, I will be either graduating with a 3.0 or close to, they never lost hope in me and they also pushed me to limits I didn't know I was capable of.
