Saint Martin's University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (2)
Saint Martin's University was a great private school due to the small class sizes and close community. The smaller class sizes allowed for more student interaction with professors which created wonderful networking opportunities. The program was insightful and I felt well prepared for my next venture, but the advising section of the University was difficult for me. I feel like they did not help as much as I would have wanted. Otherwise it was a wonderful school and I would highly recommend it.
At Saint Martins University I was able to explore not only my educational and career goals, but also my faith and values. As a Benedictine Catholic School, students are not required to commit to a particular religious lifestyle, but they are encouraged to explore the schools values, which are: faith, reason, service and community. I have a great sense of pride for my school because of the great progress the community has made in advocating for diversity issues, expanding the service department, and increasing the racial representation among faculty and staff. In order to increase diversity within the student body, the admissions process is holistic. As a prospective student, I was not merely judged by their grade point averages and my SAT/ACT scores, but by a variety of factors. Admissions counselors consider the rigor of the high school courses taken and the grade point average associated. They also encourage alumni relationships in order to advance the family ties within the community. For example, because I successfully graduated from Saint Martins University after overcoming difficult socio-economic barriers, admissions counselors will reward my younger sister with an alumni scholarship when she applies. This will reduce her similar burdens and recognize my accomplishments. Students are also praised for their extracurricular accomplishments. Admissions counselors will recruit well-rounded students that will advance the schools community through athletics, clubs and other student-lead organizations. Students who display leadership, athletic ability, or have a background in volunteer service will be rewarded in acceptance and even higher scholarship awards. Other factors also taken into consideration during the admission process include disadvantages within the students background. If a student attended a school with limited funding, or the student did not receive opportunities due to their underrepresented racial or ethnic minority identity, the Saint Martins admissions counselors will strive to reduce future barriers by increasing acceptance and financial aid. Saint Martins also wants to increase the nationality representation within the community in order to gain greater world perspectives and add depth to classroom learning and well as student relationships. Saint Martins University welcomes students from all walks of life. The student community includes students of all ages, nationalities, sexual orientations, and abilities. As an alumni of Saint Martins University, I am proud to be a Saint and I will always be happy to help out a future Saint.
