“My experience with Saint Mary’s has been fantastic. We hold two large events on campus each year and small practice every weekend. The campus is beautiful, and the staff very easy to work with.”

“We have hosted our Annual Report to the Community event at Saint Mary’s for the past ten years and the President’s Room and Toner Student Center Lounge are the perfect space for our needs.  All of the event staff are very professional and ensure that everything is ‘just right’.  I would highly recommend Saint Mary’s for business events as we have always had a wonderful experience there.”

“The past four years Cristo Rey St. Martin College Prep has brought a group of 130+ students and leaders to SMUMN for a multiple day orientation so that our students can experience life on a college campus plus engage in several training and group exercises. Working with the SMUMN events team is a pleasure from the many planning stages though the time we are on campus.  Our orientation trip to SMUMN receives great reviews from our students (and their parents) and sets a high bar for the rest of their first year at CRSM.”
