About Saint Mary's College

Saint Mary's College was founded by the Sisters of the Holy Cross in 1844 and celebrated its sesquicentennial in 1994. Saint Mary's College is one of the oldest Catholic colleges for women in the United States, and it continues to lead the way in exploring with integrity and imagination the roles of women in society. It seeks to bring together women from various geographical areas, social backgrounds, and educational experiences and to offer them options for group living. Four residence halls are available to students, and upperclass students may take advantage of off-campus housing. The college has a college center, a dining hall, and a clubhouse for extracurricular activities. There are chapels in most residence halls, and the Church of Loretto is on campus.

Saint Mary's College has a setting of natural beauty. Its 275 acres of landscaped campus lie along the Saint Joseph River, just north of the city of South Bend.

The city of South Bend offers additional social and cultural opportunities, as well as numerous options for practicums in a variety of areas, including business, education, nursing, and social work.
