St. Mary’s University Top Questions

What's unique about your campus?


I like how the school is so small so everyone is like a family here.


St. Mary's University is a small school with a lot to offer. I am really glad I decided to attend here. The sense of belonging to a community is priceless. Faculty gets to know you and are dedicated to your success, they care about you as an individual. The experience and the opportunities offered in this University are great. I would not want to be in any other college.


Ive attended private institutions my whole life and thats what i like about St. Mary's. It is a very friendly community and everyone knows each other which makes it easier to seek out for her. I have made really life-long relationships here. I like the same classes and that we get treated like an individual and not number. I believe that i would not have a one-on-one relationship with my proffesor in another university.


The best thing about my school is its size. It s a small university, therefore the class sizes are less than thirty people. This is a very good advantage compared to larger universities because the professors know us as a person not as a number. Another benefit to the small campus size is everyone ends up knowing each other in some way or another. This is a very good way of networking with fellow peers as well as faculty and staff members.


The aspect of Saint Mary's University that I love the most is the opportunities provided to students. For example, through my university, I am able to intern and research at UT Health Science Center San Antonio this upcoming summer. Not many other students in San Antonio can say the same thing. Saint Mary's also helped me find my previous internship at KCI last summer. Without Saint Mary's University, I wouldn't have these opportunities.


The best thing about my school is that teachers are always willing to help. We have so many resources for students that are having a hard time in their classes. Tutoring is available for most classes. Everyone goes to tutoring, so one does not feel at a disadvantage for needing tutoring. There is no stigma.


I love how almost everyone is willing to help the students with any questions that they may have. I have visted and talked with many professors whose classes I am not part of, but they still welcome me in. I really enjoy their hospitality. They especially help students that are first college generation students.


Faculty are teh most involved and ready to help I have ever seen.


Teachers, faculty , and students are part of what makes this school the best. Teachers are 100% available to assist you in any questions/concerns students have regarding class. They give their full attention to each one of us. Faculty are always willing to help out from financial aid questions to guiding us to the best career path we can take. Students are extremely helpful and amable with one another. It's easy to make new friends and get involve in activities around campus. Overall, the school is consider one big family.


I consider our sense of being a community striving to get everyone to be successful. We strive to give back to the community and we also encourage helping others study for classes or just helping around campus.


I consider the close community and Marianist charism to be the best things about the university. Without the community, I wouldn't feel as comfortable and open about school and my life. Also the Marianist charism is something that that only 3 universities exhibit. It's a special feeling that screams genuine care and kindness to all.


The best thing about St. Mary's is how you can feel right at home on campus. I first stepped onto campus on a tour before my senior year of high school. I learned a lot about the history of the school, and what St. Mary's offered as a university. By the time the tour was over, I could only think of how I had finally found the college for me. Living away from home was new, but I still felt that, from my first day of class, that I was somewhere I could call home.


The best thing that St. Mary's University can offer is a good college experience in which you will learn and make friends. It's a school that really cares about faculty and student interaction and the well being of the student. They will contact you and help you if for some reason you as the student have problems of some kind. They also like to encourage alot of community service that in the long run it really helps build up your resume. These qualities are the ones that drove me into this school.


The best thing about St. Mary's is the interaction you get with your professors as oppossed to a larger campus. Professor really get to know you one on one whether it be inside of class or outside. Professor here truly want to see the students succeed.


The best thing about my school would be living on campus for atleast one year for out of town students. The dorms are co-ed which helps in meeting more new people of the opposite sex and building strong long-term relationships. My school has recently inaugurated a new freshman building on campus. I wish I were living in that facility right now but can't complain. This school has everything and anything a student needs in order to succeed in life. The question is how each and every one student uses his or her available resources given to them.


The environment. Very small campus. Friendly people. Safe. Comfortable.


Faculty at St. Mary's University are extremely helpful and truly care about your success. They have so much knowledge, experience, and advice to share on how to find your niche on campus.


The best thing about StMU is the friendlyness of people on campus. After a few weekws here, they really know you as a person not as an ID number. Going into the caf or the coffee house on campus, the staff that work there know what you like and what you don't like. It's a home away from home to many students.


The best thing about my school would be the environement. Everyone on campus just about knows everyone. It is not your typical private university with small classes. Outside of classes students have the opportunity to make friends.


The people here are very friendly and giving.


It has a 13:1 student/teacher ratio


I believe the best thing about my school is the personal attention I receive from my professors because of the small classes. Group discussions and projects are always encouraged by our professor so we get to know a lot of people. The professors are experts at their fields and challenge us everyday. Everyone is so nice there and I feel comfortable and safe walking on campus.
