Overall Rating

St. Mary's has some really great things going for it. The campus is beautiful, and relatively small; it's located right on the water. The kids are all good people, and life in general seems relaxed if you are a straight-edge kid. If you're considering going here, there is a great athletics program and a great liberal arts program, and I highly recommend this school for both of those.
