Special Events

The Office of Admission invites prospective students and their families to attend one of our signature events for prospective at St. Mary’s University. These larger, in-person events are designed to showcase our academic and co-curricular opportunities as well as give students a chance to interact with current St. Mary’s students, faculty and staff.

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at St. Mary’s University! Join us for Preview Night to learn about St. Mary’s University’s transformative education, enjoy a campus tour and experience our family spirit, a characteristic of a Marianist education. Afterward, you and your family are invited to join our annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Alumni Social.

  • Sleeping Bag Weekend

    Sleeping Bag Weekend is for current high school seniors admitted to St. Mary’s University to get an exclusive, in-depth look at life as a Rattler. You’ll stay in one of our residence halls and be paired with a roommate, engage with current Rattlers, and have the chance to observe and participate in a St. Mary’s class.

High school freshmen, sophomores and juniors and seniors will discover academic opportunities, engage with faculty and staff, explore student life, visit residence halls, meet current students, and hear about scholarships and financial aid resources.
