It was fast and very easy. The people are great in this department.
College Senior 2013-11-25T00:45:08Z
I like the small town atmosphere.
College Senior 2013-11-25T00:43:55Z
I don't live on campus.
College Senior 2013-11-25T00:42:04Z
This town does not have public transportation.
College Senior 2013-11-25T00:40:56Z
We have to beware of upcoming inclement weather, however we have a text alert system in place.
College Senior 2013-11-25T00:39:48Z
Campus is becoming more diverse.
College Senior 2013-11-25T00:36:50Z
The housing is a bit dated but reasonably priced.
College Senior 2013-11-25T00:34:58Z
Sometimes the system is down and the printers.
College Senior 2013-11-25T00:32:52Z
It is a good school for academics.

There is no Greek Life at USM but I think it would be a great addition to the school. Leavenworth does not feel like a typical college town and I think that would change if there was a Greek Life to expand student activity off campus and into the community.
College Sophomore 2013-09-03T16:35:03Z
The campus is very old but beautiful on the outside. The inside of some of the facilities could use some upgrades, though.

The Athletics at Saint Marys are pretty good, They are building two new stadiums for Baseball and Soccer Teams. We have a big athletic center with great workout facilities, and a nice indoor basketball stadium for the Saint Marys basketball team.

I am used to living in Lawrence, KS where the atmosphere of the town is completely targeted at college students. Leavenworth is not so college-age friendly. I am not able to give the best review considering I do not live in the town. I simply go to school and the gym in town. Leavenworth is located in Leavenworth county. Military plays a large role in this town. Leavenworth is located just south of Fort Leavenworth; home to the US Army Combined Arms Center which is the Intellectual Center of the Army. Leavenworth has many detention centers and prisons. This includes the Leavenworth Federal Prison which the city is most known for.
The town has nearly 30 blocks of historical shopping. The C.W. Parker Carousel Museum is found in Leavenworth. This museum was listed as one of the "8 Wonders of Kansas Customs". There are more than 25 public parks along with the Riverfront Community Center.
The University of Saint Mary is a four-year private Catholic University that has its main campus in Leavenworth, KS. This university is sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth. The Sisters of Charity established this university which was previously known as Saint Mary College. At this time the school was women only. However, the University of Saint Mary is now co-ed. The university has nearly 30 bachelor's degree programs, six master's degree programs, and now a doctorate of Physical Therapy program. The mission of the University of Saint Mary is to "educate students of diverse backgrounds to realize their God-given potential and prepare them for value-centered lives and careers that contribute to the well being of our global society".
The main campus of USM is located in Leavenworth, KS. There is also an Overland Park campus and a Wyandotte County Campus. The students and staff are extremely friendly. If ever you have a question, seek one of the professors and your question will be answered.

Students at the University of Saint Mary are students from Texas, Florida, California, Colorado, etc. The students are very well dressed here and show very good presentation for our school. The social life is partying or playing sports. Interests are usually sports, drama, or school.

Being at the University of Saint Mary, and in their education program, was very enjoyable for me during my completion of my major. The teachers were very personable, the classes were small and the teachers did everything to work around your schedule and your work load because they knew that we had to work or play sports. Job opportunities are scarce everywhere so it doesn't matter what school you went to, it is mainly who you know in the school districts.

I have done student teaching, which is very similar to an internship. The time commitment was everyday from 7 to 4/5 at night to grade papers, get lessons ready for the next day, copy papers, and make sure you are organized for the next day. I did not get paid during my student teaching time and as a student teacher, I was unable to work a job because of the time frame that student teaching had.

The challenge that was the hardest was finding enough money to support myself during the fours years of college here. The most important criteria is your grades and GPA. No my program does not have an abnormal application process. No tips for admissions.
Recent Alumnus 2013-05-06T19:16:24Z
No, I think I would go to a different University. My career goals are to to get my master's in Education, and either my master's in Speech Pathology or reading specialist. My concern in finding a job is that teacher's pay is getting smaller, and they are not treated well by the government and their schools they are in.
College Sophomore 2013-05-05T23:54:00Z
Physical Therapy programs are extremely competitive and being granted admission is difficult. The biggest things that lead to a successful application process are grades and the personal interview.

Seems like there are many more boys at Saint Mary than girls. The people here do not party all that much and if they do it is pretty well segregated. The girls here come in a wide variety although most of them are not incredibly good looking. There are some that are pretty cute, but if you are looking for a bunch of hotties, this is not the place for you.
College Junior 2013-04-04T01:05:36Z
On campus the racial/ethnicity is quite diverse and evenly spread about the student body. Although there are most likely more white than black the student body mixes well, yet some people stick together and don't branch out too much. Everyone is pretty accepting of others, but this is such a small school everyone is always in other peoples business.

There's a wide variety of people at USM! We have country people, city people, just a little but if everyone!

Most students at the college are athlecic, and care very much about their appearence.
College Sophomore 2013-03-22T22:49:56Z
There are many scholarships that are available at the college.
College Sophomore 2013-03-22T22:48:22Z
The drug and alcohol policy at my school is strict, but sometimes not followed by the students.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
