Overall Experience: My only problem attending this school has been advising. Their advising processes are atrocious and that has been a struggle. Besides that, it is a wonderful community and support system.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school is small and is a home away from home. I love that when I get up in the morning, though my class is only five minutes away, it takes me 15 minutes to get there because of all the people who stop and talk to me on the way!

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

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.

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.
