WHAT I LIKED

As a Biology major, I have experienced some bumps in the road but St. Mary's has been of so much help. The professors will help you immensely by re-explaining the material or taking time out of their day to tutor you during office hours. Their techniques include hands-on learning as well as interesting lectures that will captivate your attention each class. So far I have gained so much knowledge on new topics as well as enhanced my knowledge of known topics.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

At first, it wasn't my school of choice, but I eventually warmed up to giving it a chance and I love it. Each student has a different experience but St. Mary's has a place for each. I will say I did wish the food was a little bit better but other choices are presented such as Starbucks, Subway, and Chic-fil-a.

People are very friendly and open to discussion. Teachers are kind and work with the students to improve classes. The classes are interesting but do involve a lot of work.

Some of the dorms aren't in the greatest of conditions and insects do get in and bother me.

WHAT I LIKED

You will run into professors you will love and really don't like, but that's at every university and college you go to. Though you meet all different kinds of people and the professors really want to support you in your career as a college student. Pick a great faculty mentor that doesn't mind you bugging them, you will be seeing them a lot. Look at ratemyprofessor.com, it will help greatly. Sign up early for classes and take advantage of opportunities like the hotwire program and the clips offered on campus. Attend some of the crazy activities they offer with newly made friends and create your own adventures with friends made along the way.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Don't let Zaragoza be your first impression of St Mary's that sticks, go on a personal tour and ask around with the students on campus what they like and dislike, and meet the professors too. Your freshmen advisor will suck if you are in the STEM field, I'm not even going to lie.. don't listen to what he says go talk to a professor. Some of the buildings are old, don't take the elevators, save yourself a future heart attack and take the stairs.

WHAT I LIKED

Honestly, the small class size. As students we were able to connect with each a lot and help each other out when it came to problems.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Probably the fact there is no football team. Seeing other universities go to football games make me feel left out (personal problem).
