Helping You Make Your College Decision

Simply Seniors is an event for high school seniors who have been admitted, who have applied, or who are considering an application to Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. 

This two-day visit opportunity will allow you to stay overnight, sit in on classes, and join students in the cafeteria for meals. It affords you the chance to truly experience life at Saint Mary’s. This is also a great time to schedule your talent scholarship auditions. We hold professor-led sessions and allow you to delve more deeply into our academic offerings.
