Does University of Mary offer extracurricular opportunities for students based on their majors?
University of Mary
Yes! There are a ton of student organizations to get involved in on campus. Most majors have student led clubs that are associated with them. We also love when students start new clubs. So if there is not a club for your major yet you could be its founder. There are also a lot of opportunities for students to gain experience in their field through their relationships with their professors. Our student to faculty ratio is 11:1. So your professors get to know you well over the course of your studies and they can get you connected in the field.

I enjoy the deep community that is fostered between both students and professors. You are able to ask any question, ad they are willing to give you an honest answer. The professors really look out for you academically, and if you are struggling they go out of their way to help you.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

This school is very Catholic. The University of Mary welcomes all different Christian denominations, but this may be a potential point of contention.

I like how everyone on the campus is friendly, including the professors. Everything on the campus is set up nicely and looks beautiful. There are many events that a student can become a part of to meet other people or to learn about other cultures.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

This school is a Catholic school, so they may require you to take a few religious courses.

My experience at the University of Mary thus far has been incredible. The community is something I have never experienced before. There is a strong Christian and Catholic backbone to the university, but there is also a lot of diversity here. The Nursing program is also one of the very best here at Mary. I love it here, and I would recommend Mary to any prospective students.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Be aware that the dorms are not always the nicest for guys. The girls' dorms are wonderful, but the freshman guys' dorms are not amazing.

Sophie Patton



The community is like none other. Everyone is always laughing or appears to be joyful, whereas other schools I toured did not appear to have the same happy atmosphere. There are always events going on for people with countless interests, and if you get bored on campus (which is impossible) there is always something to do in Bismarck, which is a very safe environment.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only issue I have with UMary is the poor landscaping. I just wish we had a prettier campus!

It's a small school, so there is a very personalized educational experience. The teacher-to-student ratio is perfect for optimizing classroom time and being able to work with teachers during office hours. The community is very close and it is truly a school where everyone knows everyone else.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I like that UMary is a Catholic school, but if you aren't Catholic, it can be a stressful experience. Non-Catholic students are not outcasts by any means, but many of our activities are faith-based, so going to those social can sometimes feel weird.
