Maryville University of Saint Louis Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?


Well Maryville is a bit on the higher income scale so more often than not the students are considering well breaded or stuck up, and in some cases that may be the case. However in others this stereotype is completely inaccurate.


For private schools in general, the stereotype might be that only rich, spoiled, snobby kids would go there. However, at Maryville University, this couldn't be farther from the truth. The majority of people here are using financial aid to stay here, and everyone is as friendly as they come. The faculty and staff truly want to get to know you and your goals, and ultimately want to see you succeed. Even the students are excited and welcoming. When I took my first tour on campus, I felt at ease because it seemed like the tour guide was open about their own Maryville experiences and what this school had to offer. I am now the president of Maryville Student Government and a tour guide on campus, and I love spreading the same enthusiasm and excitement with other prospective students.


Whenever there are students that come to campus, visiting or even the incoming freshman, they all say the same thing. All the Maryville Students are so nice, and they really all. All of the student body are very nice, They are respectful. The students at Maryville are not nice to your face and then talk about you behind your back, they are all genuinely nice.
