Your Time at Saint Mary's

The years you will spend at Saint Mary's belong to you, but we want you to know we are here to support your journey.

New Student Orientation

One way we help your transition to Saint Mary's is by holding a new student orientation at the beginning of your first semester. We’ll throw a lot of information at you in the beginning, but we promise you’ll learn the quickest way from Brousseau to Oliver Hall faster than you think.

Traditions and Resources

You will also spend the first few weeks learning about campus traditions and the available support resources for students and families. If coming to college means leaving your home country, we’ll help you navigate everything from getting a student visa to what to pack for our northern California weather.

Getting Involved

Soon Saint Mary's will feel like home, and it will be time to get involved in the community. You might join one of our 40+ student organizations, suit-up for one of our intramural leagues or sit-in on the Global Economic Forum. You won’t run out of options here.
