News Release, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

St. Mary’s College of Maryland, the National Public Honors College, was recently acknowledged in the 2021 edition of the “Fiske Guide to Colleges.”

For more than 35 years, millions of students, parents, and guidance counselors have relied on the Fiske Guide to Colleges during their college search. Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the guide is a selective, subjective, and systematic look at 300+ colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain.

According to the guide, “Students can easily design their own majors, undertake independent research projects, or work closely with professors to investigate whatever interests them. A biology major says, ‘This place will allow you to try new things, understand yourself better, and open your eyes to the world.’”

According to a senior quoted in the guide, “Because of the nature of an honors college, all students who attend St. Mary’s are academically focused, and there is a common goal to succeed.”
