I think that this is a fantastic University and I could not see myself going anywhere else. The only downside for some is that it is a very small campus, therefore it lacks the things that large colleges may offer. With that being said, the professors and student life on campus are very engaging and provides many opportunities for students. Overall, I would choose to go to this University again and feel that this is the best place to grow as a student.

So far I have only taken a History class online. Despite not meeting any of my classmates or professor in-person, I feel that I learn just as well as if I were in a classroom. The material is very engaging and it is easy to follow along. With that being said, this online class presents a challenge that helps expand my learning and problem solving.
When I first visited Saint Mary, I was with a girl from Georgia who was there for track. The track coach seemed nice, even though I am not doing track. I was provided with a world of information on how to get started at Saint Mary. I loved my first experience!
