Saint Mary's College - IN Reviews
SMC was amazing! I felt like I was home as soon as I drove down the Avenue. Not only did I meet my very best friends there, I received an amazing education. Call sizes were small- 15-20 people- and professors took an avid interest in our lives. They noticed if we didn't show up and offered to help if our work was lacking. Attending an all girls college was the best decision I've ever made. Women supporting women on a daily basis is empowering. The curriculum was rigorous and I felt prepared for my career.
My decision to attend Saint Mary's College was the best I ever made. I greatly benefited from the small class sizes and forming genuine relationships with my professors. The liberal arts degree gave me a well-rounded education that has proven valuable in the years since graduation. Student life is a wonderful mix of the all women's college experience at SMC and the opportunities available from the University of Notre Dame across the street.
Saint Mary's offers women a great learning environment, one that fosters not only learning in the classroom, but also learning in your field, community, and abroad. Saint Mary's teaches women to be strong, independent, well rounded individuals.
I am currently finishing a Master's Degree from a different university than my undergrad, because my undergrad college did not offer graduate courses. However, I will be reviewing the college I pursued my Bachelor's Degree from. I graduated from Saint Mary's College in Notre Dame, IN in 2007. I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years at Saint Mary's College (SMC). Attending Saint Mary's was the best decision I made for myself! The lifelong friendships, forever memories and education made me the woman I am today. The professors are always willing to help and they are interested in getting to know their students. I still keep in contact with some of my professors to this day. I also go back to SMC at least once a year to visit the school, meet up with friends, visit my former professors, and attend ND football games. Even though 9 years has passed since I graduated, it still feels like home. I proudly wear my ring everyday and remember all of the experiences and opportunities that were afforded to me through the Saint Mary's community!
There were so many great opportunities to grow as a person and in my major. The all-women environment minimized distractions for me, and helped me to become a strong, capable woman.
I loved the small class sizes and tight-knit community. Doing a science degree at a women's college was fantastic.
Saint Mary's pushes its students to explore different and at times nontraditional facets of learning. It encourages girls to become independent, focused, intelligent women who make a difference in the community, classroom, and work place both during college years and after graduation.
Saint Mary's College really prepared me for the next step in my career: graduate school. The communicative sciences program at Saint Mary's College has a lot to offer an individual who is interested in working with those with special needs, but not necessarily teaching them in a classroom. Becoming at Speech-language pathologist means you get to be an advocate for individuals who cannot advocate for themself. Saint Mary's really prepares your heart and mind for this profession. I know I graduated before a lot of changes occurred due to the new graduate program at Saint Mary's, however, the quality of the program at the undergrad level could never decrease do to the graduate school opening. If anything, opening the graduate school for COMMD will help those in the undergraduate program become even more prepared for graduate school.
Saint Mary's is a excellent institution that empowers young women to reach thier full potential. While the costs may seem daunting, there is alot of financial aid avalible. The grants and scholarships that I recieved were enough that I paid out - of - pocket the price of a community college. This is an experiance you do not want to miss. The small, close knit community has become my family when my own failed to understand me. Saint Mary's is truly a home away from home. The best experiance I have ever been so blessed to have.
