One more thing that I feel is important to note!
I stated in my previous review that I overall did not enjoy SMC, felt that they are running low on financial resources, not using their full potential, and I would not recommend unless you are like me and cannot afford to go anywhere else.HOWEVER, one of the biggest positives that I forgot is the alumnae network. The experience sucks, but it seems that after you put in your four years of dealing with it, the network is very helpful. Belles love other belles. At my graduate school reception, one of the directors came and found me in a very crowded room just to ask me if I went to Saint Mary's. When I said yes, she said "I did too. If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out. There's three of us here and we would be more than happy and willing to help you. Job interviews, advice, networking; you name it and we can help you". Another person I know got a job at a law firm as an assistant just because she was a Belle and eventually worked her way up to getting her JD and becoming a very successful lawyer in Chicago. This is the biggest positive I have seen as I approach graduation, and I appreciate all of the previous Belles who have ever helped me and may help me in the future. It is great to feel welcome no matter where I go.

Saint Marys has a wonderful Nursing program, graduateNursing
Saint Marys has a wonderful Nursing program, graduate and pass the NCLEX, and you will always have a job. I have always been employed when I wanted to, have moved (10 times) with my husband's military career, finding employment easily, because of my 4 year degree. The academically rigorous curriculum will prepare you for hospital nursing. You will be able to make decisions quickly, and independently perform tasks without needing help. Saint Mary's College contributed to my overall confidence as a young female. The small class sizes and professors supported the growth I needed as I stepped into the real world. I gained valuable critical thinking and reasoning skills that are essential to nursing and life. Love this program and love SMC!

SMC has so far have been one ofQuite BrightUndecided
SMC has so far have been one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is like a second home and it's a very peaceful environment. The professors are very friendly and approachable and they want to see you succeed. They are always available during their office hours. If you put in the work and the effort professors will guide you to possible future internships and volunteer opportunities. They are always looking for students to do research with them during the summer of Junior year. The classes can be challenging but they are super doable if you know how to manage your time. Many study abroad opportunities and internship opportunities. There are different types of students here ranging from really liberal to really conservative. Snooty to really kind. Rich, middle class, and lower class. Most students are from Michigan and Indiana. The social life sucks at SMC but there is always Notre Dame across the street. Football games are really fun to get to meet people and get access to the parties.
