Life at St. Mary's
The dormitory is a fully supervised facility with a wide array of activities and services including a cafeteria, in-room broadband internet access, recreational opportunities, student lounges and library access all within steps of the dormitory.
Friends and Family Program
The purpose of the International Friends & Family Program is to strengthen ties between the campus and community while providing a great opportunity for cross-cultural sharing. This is not a host family. Rather, it is an opportunity for fun and friendship through five structured events spread throughout the school year.
For more information or to get involved, please contact Ronda Sheffield at email@example.com.
Every week, the entire dormitory gathers after dinner to share information, address dormitory issues, and promote elements of character education and community membership.
The meetings tackle serious issues as well as aspects of safety, health, personal responsibility, and community needs. The residential faculty also carry out a series of formal programs addressing community responsibility, dorm values, conflict resolution, time and stress management, and personal wellness and safety.
