  • I am a past student here

    while saint mary's is quite expensive, it more than makes up for it in the experience you will get. of course i wish it was more economical. i had the choice to attend another institution and graduate debt free, but i chose saint mary's because of its unique opportunities, even though it cost me more. i wouldn't change a thing. i am so happy in my decision.
