Welcome to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome the Class of 2018 and all returning students at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College.

As our faculty and professional staff prepare for the busy weeks and months to come, I remind you of what lies ahead. At The Woods, you’ll find a once in a lifetime experience designed to give you options and opportunities to aspire higher. This experience will empower and transform you in every aspect of growth – academics, athletics, campus life, community service, faith and leadership. Here you will direct your passion, attain goals, improve lives and stretch beyond what you imagine.

To our women and men in our online and graduate programs, you too are challenged to Aspire Higher by changing or advancing your career. You will engage in relevant courses of study to hone career skills rooted in a tradition of academic excellence and spirituality. You will find that the flexibility of course delivery will fit your lifestyle and learning style as you balance career and family responsibilities.

With 25 undergraduate degree programs and four distinctive graduate programs, all students will connect with expert faculty and staff who provide training, inspiration and encouragement for leadership positions in your life, your community and your career.

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College is an incredible place. I am excited to be a part of this new beginning where not only will you be changed by this educational experience but you will change us with your creativity, energy and determination.
