Overall, I would have to say that this school is one of the best places I could be right now. It's so small that I interact with nearly everyone on campus every week. I meet similar and dissimilar types, and the close community helps me to get along with all of them, rather like a small town. There is solitude if I need it for serious study, but there are also people to hang out with, discussing philosophy or swapping stories. There is a lot of work to do, but through the College of St. Mary Magdalen, I have come to appreciate a proper balance of mental and physical work.

The college is fairly strict, but I think that it is helpful, especially with the large amount of homework and classwork that is required.

CSMM teaches the liberal arts through the Socratic method. Basically, what this means is that the students are constantly seeking truth in class group discussions. The professors assign readings that encourage deep thinking and philosophical discussion during class. It is a wonderfully active way to learn truth.

The facilities here are really nice and clean. The lounge is an awesome place to hang out, there is a spacious gym where students roller skate, play tennis and basketball and a library. There is also a good soccer field outside the multi-purpose building. There are several clubs to join as well as daily student activities, so there is not a lack of things to do.

There isn't much parking available on campus, but that is because most of the students don't have cars. Practically everyone lives on campus so there is very little need to own a car. However, if a student wishes to bring their car, they can park in the small lot behind the multi-purpose building. It isn't large but, at least, it is fairly cheap to get a parking permit here.

Guys & Girls:
The girls here are really friendly and nice. They are always willing to help someone out with their homework and spend time with someone who might be going through a tough time. The girls are also modest and womanly. The guys are true gentlemen and most of them are not shy about helping out. All the girls and guys come from different parts of the country so there is a fairly wide range of accents and cultural backgrounds, even though the school is small.

We don't have Greek Life. Our campus is mainly Catholic, and the Church is much older, bigger, and more unified than Greek Life. We also have parties (holiday = holy-day) and community events (Pro-life activities, Knights of Columbus, and others). The Catholics are very open and tolerant of the non-Catholics, and work both to learn from them and to help them in their pursuit of the truth.

I found the local atmosphere peaceful, which was helpful with a schedule of 20 credit hours. The people here are very relaxed, in contrast to the program, which is very difficult. There are not many local attractions, even for those who walk 40 min. down the mountain to Warner, but there are occasional college outings for skiing, skating, art museums, or just the Concord Walmart. I liked it, but then, I enjoyed the homework, so I didn't need many other sources of entertainment.

I love the program at The College of St. Mary Magdalen! It's not specialized, like a trade or technical school, but it is very well-balanced. Now, many might consider a liberal arts school to be an intellectual scramble where professors argue and confuse their students into broad-mindedness. The College of St. Mary Magdalen, however, actually helps guide their students to the pursuit of truth, so that the students learn not only how to think logically and argue persuasively, but how to live in a way that demonstrates the truth of their convictions. This college's program is not about getting a good job: it's about living well.

There are not many computers at Magdalen, but they are only needed for printing or sometimes writing papers. They are neither new nor fast, but they get the job done. I always use my computer to write papers, and I use the WiFi for internet. I would advise you to bring a computer if you can because it's just faster and more convenient, which can be a big help during crunch time.

They Were All Super Easy – The scholarships offered at the college are so easy to apply for. The faculty and staff are more than willing to work with anyone who needs help. They have a lot of financial aid available.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
