Saint Martin's University
- Graduate School
- Lacey, WA
Doctoral Student: Working with Graduate Admissions has been a DREAM. I'm in the first cohort for the Ph.D. program, and they've been instrumental to my success! Even STILL today, Chantelle Petrone Marker & her team have been AMAZING!! They're responsive & supportive - ESPECIALLY as a first-generation, Black student getting a terminal degree!
Despite being a relatively diverse university, with between 40-50% students of color consistently, the administration is INEPT at supporting students of color. In near-constant racist, anti-Black issues and they manage POORLY at best, which is NEVER acceptable, but ESPECIALLY in this racially charged climate.
There isn't much intention held around including grad students in the overall college experience (especially for us as Ph.D. students). We are regularly an afterthought, at best, for critical elements of the Saint Martin's experience, like additional financial aid provided by the university, event scheduling, and campus-wide student engagement efforts.
