          • Testimony
            2014-2017, A great and welcoming school....

            I especially like the attention the faculty gives to the learning experience. With the class sizes averaging fifteen students to an instructor they are able to give more time to each student and to the covering of the material.

          • Testimony
            1964-1968, Quality of Teachers

            I was lucky enough to be able to attend St. Mary's from 1964 to 1968 and graduate Cum Laude as a B.S.I.E. The teachers I had in every single course taken were absolutely great, particularly Dr. Ozan, who unfortunately passed away, but he taught us not only to be great Engineers but also to improve all our qualities as human beings. His teachings and counsel made me a very successful Manager, Engineer and coach and was and is a great example in y life. I consider St. Mary's a top notch school!

          • Testimony
            2004-2008, Great place for an Exceptional education!

            From the moment I stepped on campus for a visit, I knew I wanted to call St. Mary's home. St. Mary's offers an environment that fosters learning and development, all while gaining a great college experience. The faculty and staff are outstanding and are readily available to help guide you in planning your future. The athletics department is all about their athletes being students first, and then athletes. I can attest to this as a former softball player. The coaches strive to ensure that their players have the tools and support of the university to excel in the classroom despite traveling for games.
