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.
