Saint Michael's is a Catholic college founded by the Society of Saint Edmund in 1904. Their guiding principles of education, justice, and service to the poor are at the heart of the Saint Michael's experience. 


It is the mission of Saint Michael's College to contribute through higher education to the enhancement of the human person and to the advancement of human culture in the light of the Catholic faith.


Getting involved in a research project with a faculty member can be a highlight of your Saint Michael's education. Joining forces with a professor means you'll work closely with a mentor. Plus, you'll gain essential experience that will strengthen your resume and graduate school applications.


Starting early is the best way to prepare for a career. Using your 4 years of college to test out different career goals and build experience can speed the journey from student to professional.

Student Reviews

I Like Saint Mike's
Christina Scenna rated 5 out of 5 stars

Studying at Saint Michael's College was a wonderful experience. The 10:1 student to faculty ratio made discussions in and outside of class beneficial towards the overall education. The sociology department in particular was a very close-knit community of professors and students not only learning about the study of societies but learning about everything in between as well.
