Saint Mary's College of California Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Saint Mary's College of California is an excellent institution that provides a quality liberal arts education and prepares each student to think critically. In my personal experience I felt like I was fully supported and challenged by my professors to reach my educational and professional goals.
Saint Mary's is definitely not for everyone, but it is perfect if you are looking for a small, close knit community, small class sizes, and wonderful opportunities to get to know classmates and professors on a different level. They encourage collaborative thinking and exude a passion for social justice. The opportunities that Saint Mary's gave me are incredibly unique and have helped form memories and skills that will last a lifetime.
I graduated from SMC in 2016 and jumped into their MBA program in the same year. The school is all about community and you truly get to know your classmates and professors in and out of the classroom. I transferred there for my undergraduate and can speak to the difference between a big school where you get lost in everything and one where you get a quality education from everyone around you.
Saint Mary's College was an incredibly rigorous yet fulfilling school to attend. Immersed in the small community which consisted of attentive and caring professors as well as collaborative students, I believe I achieved my full potential there. The small atmosphere fostered personal learning and I always felt supported. They have an excellent business program and a science department that helped prepare me for medical school. I would definitely recommend this school to any student considering!
The campus is beautiful and the class sizes are very small. I also liked some of the reading courses that were required. It's a school where you focus on your major, but also teaches you to become a more cultured individual by creating at atmosphere where you can have great experiences outside of your major.
