Perspective from our students may be the most valuable of all.
They’ve walked the halls, taken the courses, participated in activities and events, and have a deep appreciation for what St. Mary’s is truly all about. Here’s what they’ve had to say about their time at St. Mary’s.
Over my career at St. Mary’s I have held many different titles and every single one of them has been an honor. I have been a friend, a president, an athlete, a tutor, an assistant director, a representative, and many other things. But above all else, it was always my greatest privilege to be called a Saint. I was proud to wake up every day and see the people that made school so much fun and to be part of a community of truly wonderful people. I will forever be thankful for the teachers who always put in the extra mile to get me to succeed and the students who were always so ready to welcome a new student or lend a helping hand. These put together made excelling very easy for me, and I know as I leave St. Mary’s and move on to UMass Amherst I will bring the strong Catholic morals and academic preparedness that STM has instilled in me.
I’ve had a lot of opportunities over the years as a saint. Academically I have joined classes of hard-working kids to band together as a group of scholars always willing to work together or come in for extra help. Athletically I was always encouraged to go and try new things. That is how I came to be captain of both the cross country and tennis teams. My teammates were always so helpful and made sports a joy even if we did lose every so often. Outside of these I grew as a person a number of ways aiding and eventually leading our outstanding drama club. I joined many different clubs and held office in many of them. I learned to lead and work as an efficient team through my various class offices. That is what being a Saint is all about. Learning. Growing. Being the best person you can be.
