Have a question about what’s going on in the admissions office? Want to ask us a question? Here’s your place.
My name is Ben Toll and I’m a 2006 graduate of St. Mary’s College of Maryland as well as an Assistant Director of Admission. Throughout the year I’ll be blogging about the college application process as well as providing news about St. Mary’s.

Most students moved back to campus Sunday afternoon, and spent today reconnecting with friends, buying textbooks, and taking a deep breath before the train starts moving tomorrow. This morning St. Mary’s held [...]
In the world of St. Mary’s, no three letters have more importance than the letters SMP. These letters provoke fear in the eyes of procrastinating seniors, pride in the eyes of St. Mary’s grads, and general bewilderment in the eyes of the general public.

With students applying to St. Mary’s from all across the country we realize that a campus visit is not always a possibility. We really value face-to-face interaction and want to make ourselves available to students who aren’t able to visit. Through Skype, prospective students can ask questions directly via videochat. Both Tricia & I have [...]
