Overall Rating

Overall my experience with the University of Mary was wonderful and it made my first year of school very enjoyable. Some things that I really like about the school was the homey feeling that the University has. The teachers are concerned about you and most are always willing to help. Also advisors and other professionals are there to help. The friends that I have meet at the school will be my life long friends and they are one of the main reasons I loved my first year so much. There are many different activites on campus that you can take part in but you must be willing to get involved and turn any experience into a fun one. Your experience at Mary is greatly determined by what you do with your time and by how much you choose to get involved.
