Campus Life

Personal attention is the first phrase many students use to describe what they love about St. Mary’s. Students say the campus atmosphere of collaboration and community makes it easier to tackle all aspects of college life.┬áIn college, an important part of your education will come from extracurricular experiences. The vital energy on campus is channeled into a broad spectrum of activities. Getting involved and meeting friends is easy with organizations offering academic, faith-based, political, cultural, social and community service activities.

Whether you live in University housing or commute to campus, you’re invited to be part of the action. We believe you’ll want to make the most of every moment.
