The College Tour episode offers all prospective students of St. Mary’s University a chance to get to know our beautiful campus, our unique approach to liberal arts education and our close-knit community before scheduling an in-person tour,” said St. Mary’s University President Thomas M.

No matter their major, our students develop writing, speaking and critical thinking skills — skills sought after by future employers.”
