  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I were given the opportunity to go back in time and talk to myself as a highschool senior with my current knowledge about college life and the transition, my advice would be this; Don't doubt your ability to surprise yourself. When I began my first semester here at Saint Mary's College I was terrified that I would not be able to keep up with the work load, that I would not make new friends, and that I just wouldn't be as happy as I was in my comfortable highschool environment where I was able to rule the school as a senior. Since my time at Saint Mary's has begun, I have found just the opposite to be true. I have accomodated tremendously to my new acadamic schedule. I even managed the dean's list in my first semester and I found my classes to be wonderfully entertaining. My social life has never been richer. The friendships that I have created here have only made my heart grow. I have found that college allows your true self to shine through, you can be whoever you want to be, you can be who you are.

  13. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    Because Saint Mary's College is a relatively small school, certain classes are not always offered because there are not enough people to take it. This makes it difficult when I am interested in taking particular classes, since some are rarely offered. However, professors are often willing to cooperate with students and offer unique accommodations, such as independent study, in order to meet student needs. Although it is frustrating when the classes in which I am interested are not offered, I am confident that the professors can help me find a way to take them.
