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!

Question
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.

Question
My experience at Saint Mary's has been bothNot so bright
My experience at Saint Mary's has been both positive and negative. Negative because this is not a place that values or understands the concept of diversity. The students have a passive aggressive attitude towards anyone they perceive as different. That is to say, anyone that is not white and upper middle-class. The professors are intelligent and they are willing to work with you. I honestly believe they want you to be a capable and confident woman but some of them are extremely condescending. Classes are expected to be somewhat challenging and most students strive to get good grades. Having said that, if you are not white and upper-middle class it can become a very lonely place for you because other students will not want to interact with you and you are left with the choice of joining their "multicultural clubs" or not participating at all. I chose not to participate at all because their "multicultural clubs." These clubs are just a false facade of diversity and understanding. It doesn't really solve the underlying problem. Most of these students have never been exposed to other types of people, including other poor whites from more liberal states. Overall, its a very lonely place for a woman of color, or a woman with a broader experience in life. I'm not sure that the education is worth the isolation.
