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.
