Rigorous academics that encourage students to look at how they might make a difference in the world are what you will find at Saint Martin’s University, a Benedictine Catholic school in Lacy, Washington.
Saint Martin’s undergraduate majors, minors and pre-professional programs encompass everything from Art to pre-Dentistry to English to Mechanical Engineering. Regardless of their major, students are taught to look at how they can use their gifts and knowledge to contribute something positive to the school and beyond. Since Saint Martin’s is wholeheartedly committed to this notion of service, it’s no surprise that they even offer a major in Community Service.
This commitment is also seen in and fostered through student service activities such as building homes for Habitat for Humanity and assisting the poor.
The messages of service, compassion and acceptance of all people, which figure so prominently into the Saint Martin’s perspective, can be seen in its clubs as well. In addition to academic, creative and social clubs, there are many clubs dedicated to underrepresented groups such as the Social Action Club, the Black Student Union, Minorities in Action, Filipino, Latino and gay student clubs, and a Non-Traditional Student Club.
Freshman applicants are evaluated by the admissions committee based on academic performance, SAT scores, personal essays and recommendation letters. Transfer students with a certain number of credits do not need to submit SAT scores.
Saint Martin’s has worked hard to keep tuition costs at a minimum. To make their education even more affordable they offer a number of scholarships to eligible students based on grades, artistic talent and other factors. Students may also apply for need-based aid such as grants and loans.
