3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Saint Martin's stresses the importance of safety for the students. The walk ways are always lit and their are emergency phones for your use if you need to call.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors range from being great to not caring much. Some teachers will go out of their way to help you with an assignment while others just tell you to look at the moodle page.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Saint Martin's is known as being a higher up education college. They help you to get internships no later than your junior year and try to stay in touch with you to find a job.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus had its perks, but most people are not clean when it comes to the bathrooms. On top of that rules are not enforced, leaving the halls noisy after quiet hours.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: My college does not have fraternities or sororities, but we have little greek clubs and societies. Most of these are overlooked and are not very popular among the students that attend the college.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletes are seen as being stuck up. They think because they are an athlete they deserve special privileges over the average student. Needless of this, the students like myself try to go to as many sporting events as we can to support our school.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: College so far is good. It can be stressful when people aren't as helpful as they should be when you're new but that's a part of the experience. You learn to do things on your own and have to accept responsibility for your actions.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have very observant public safety and I never feel threatened or afraid.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors are really great but of course theirs a few who arent the best at teaching/

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They make a big effort to connect students to people in their future careers.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its very clean and nice. Some dorms have certain perks than others.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There isn't a football team, which is a big sport in America so not many people are interested in going to events.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a very community oriented school. Its very small so everyone knows everyone, which is nice for making friends and connecting with teachers.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Campus Safety is helpful, and there are Police departments and Fire Departments near campus. Also the Counselling center is a safe place to be able to talk with someone when you need it

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school Is wonderful. There is a strong sense of community and an environment that focuses on the growth of the individual. Especially in academics, relations with others, and overall personal growth. Yes, it is a small school. Class options are limited for some majors and there isn't a huge party/ social scene. However the quality of the education is high. My class sizes as a first- year range from 12 - 20 students. The professors know who you are, what your goals are and are willing and ready to help you when you need it. These connections with faculty can help with careers and internships. My opinion is that these things are far more important than a busy social life.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As a commuter student, I am finding it difficult to fit in. There are no efforts made on the Activities Department, the school, nor students to help commuter students have a dynamic community. We are kind of left out.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I enjoy the diversity and the academic support.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is okay if you're choosing to enroll in either engineering or education (both of which also have issues, but are more funded than any other program at the school). However, if you choose any other major be prepared for subpar supplies in lab (if you even have enough lab equipment) and issues preparing for life after school. Like any school, some professors are absolutely amazing and make class both enjoyable and easy to learn, and other professors should consider another profession. The financial aid is pretty good, just make sure to regularly keep in touch with them so that there are no surprises. Also, make sure to really get a jump on registering for classes, and have a backup schedule handy to change to in case the classes are cancelled or more likely moved into another time slot after you register that you can't fit into the schedule.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Not a whole lot of places that aren't chain restaurants. Anything not chain is pretty pricey.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Not a whole lot of young people live off campus. Not allowed to until you're older anyway.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students will say that they feel at home while attending Saint Martin’s, but there are students who think it is too small, too boring, or they just don't enjoy their experience. The professors are knowledgeable, accessible, and friendly, with class sizes that are small. Overall, the campus is beautiful, and there are a variety of opportunities students can grasp if they want to (e.g., leadership, study abroad, etc.). The location of the University can be a turn-off for students who come from a big city, but oftentimes students will find the hidden gems Lacey-Olympia-Tumwater has to offer. Nature surrounds the school, and it is no surprise for students to spot a herd of deer up close. And when it's time to graduate, all undergraduate and graduate students receive a hood—you definitely will not get that at a bigger school. These are just a few reasons Saint Martin’s University is the place to be, to feel at home.

The functioning Benedictine monastery is very unique to Saint Martin’s. Monks serve as professors as well as other roles at the University. Many times you will see a person wearing all black with what looks like a cape; these are the monks and their attire is called a habit. Where else can you find monks playing video games in the student union building? At Saint Martin's, it's an everyday occurrence. As a Benedictine university, classes are often taught with the staples of the Benedictine philosophy. Students graduate feeling, knowing, and growing into their individuality with "faith, reason, and service" in mind.
