Health & Safety: The hand out lots of parking tickets from students who don't have money.

Overall Experience: Most of the students have titles like Barista, Dishwasher, Stocker, Bus boy, and Janitor after getting a degree at this college. I know so many student still working low end manual labor jobs after graduating. A friend of mine has been a dishwasher three years after graduating still, and I just took a job as a busboy after months of no job offers (no one wants people with a Liberal Arts degree). Yet the student loans will still want their money from your min wage pay.

Campus Housing: Worst college housing in the state. Most of the dorms have roaches.

Athletics: This is the worst college on the state of Maryland.

1 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: This is by far one of the worst colleges in the state. The teachers are arrogant and not helpful, the dorms have roaches, the library is falling apart and the roof leaks, they artificially deflate the averages students GPA, the have a fee for everything like droping classes (which costs 25 dollars, and no other states college in Maryland charges a fee for this), the heat and AC in most building are horrible, the Daily Grind has roaches that are walking on the espresso machine (don't get a latte), the teachers and president are overpaid and act like you should be grateful if they barley do their job, the curriculum is useless in the real worlds in terms of getting jobs, the library also has mice, the dorms in general are horrible (but area for the administration are brand new and nice), the college uses stuff like community service to extort manual labor from students. Also if you expect stuff like Powerpoints, which most colleges uses, they you will be surprised when the teachers act like its still 1950 in terms of their use of technology in the classroom (this place in general is ran like its 1950, there is very little racial diversity at this college and many students at the college have wrote racists things on cans at parties. Also, the president of the college makes more than the governor of Maryland and has a part time driver (which is just wrong and absurd on so many levels). Moreover, Public Safety hands out tickets like candy. Likewise, most of the students at this college are elitist jerks who's parent are loaded with money (this place is very unwelcoming toward community college transfer students). Therefore, if you want a horrible college experience, while being extorted for lots of money, then this is the place for you. DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR, AVOID THIS COLLEGE AT ALL COSTS, IT WAS THE WORST LIFE DECISION THAT I EVER MADE. Also, they will probably be bankrupt in ten years, read the news if you don't believe me.

Campus Housing: Dorms aren't lavish but they're okay to live in

3 College Senior

Athletics: Sports are supported but not huge part of campus life

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It has a lot to improve on but i still love it

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed all my classes so far at this college and have become very close with my professors. The professors get to know you and make sure you always know that you can go to them for help. They make sure that they challenge you

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Students highly value a degree. The career center is a very accessible resource that many students use to help find internships and post-graduate jobs. Many students continue their education after graduation and attend a grad-school.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our campus is very safe both during the day and night. Our campus is very secluded .

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great. Because it's such a small campus, it's easy to leave your room and walk to class in under 10 minutes.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are important at our school. Everyone gets involved and goes to games to cheer on their friends.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school. From the minute I got there, I realized I made the best decision. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. Everyday you meet someone new and grow closer as a community. The small school atmosphere and our environmental awareness makes us unique. Keep St. Mary's weird.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our school is Division III when it comes to sports and the attendance is usually highest during the first few home games and the last few home games. Our teams do put in a lot of effort, time, and enthusiasm into each game and practice. The athletic center is equipped with weights, treadmills, bikes, movement room, rock climbing wall, etc. I think it has everything athletes and non athletes need.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the friends I have made at this school and the staff who have helped me, but I'm not sure I would choose this school again. I am a minority on this campus and there is only a small percentage of us because the campus is majorly white. There have been many racial incidents and many of us do not feel safe and respected. I plan to stay on campus and continue my major, but I'm not sure I'd choose this school again based on what I know now.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

St. Mary's looks like it's going to be a boring campus in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do for fun. But most students find that this impression is wrong once they stay on campus for a bit and meet everyone. The friendly students and faculty make St. Mary's a warm and inviting place where everyone feels right at home. Students enjoy hanging out by the water or lazing around on the grass, taking a stroll through Historic St. Mary's City, and going swimming down by The Point. While enjoying what is supposedly the best four years of their lives, students receive a quality education that will take them further in life than they ever imagined. Graduating students are excited for their futures to unfold but also regretful that they must leave St. Mary's, a place lovingly called "home" for so long.

St. Mary's facilitates learning through incredible faculty, amazing course offerings, and a general atmosphere that broadens horizons and fosters growth within students. Students who attend St. Mary's arrive as children and leave as adults, having been given the opportunity to experience new things and learn so much through these experiences.
