Location: This suburban campus is located in Indiana among 100 acres of trees and gardens. St. Mary’s is across the street from the University of Notre Dame, which expands the opportunities for St. Mary’s students, including classes and Division 1 sporting events (and cute, smart guys!).
Why it’s Great: St. Mary’s is an all girls’ school with most classes no larger than 15 students.
Awards: SMC has six nationally accredited academic programs: social work, art, music, teacher education, chemistry, and nursing.
Fun Fact: A Notre Dame Co-Exchange program encourages Saint Mary’s students to take up to two classes per semester at the University of Notre Dame.
