Hear it from a Saint
"Saint Martin's allowed me to engage with professionals and students with similar interests in a setting that felt both personal and productive. It also offered opportunities to participate in extended activities, such as the Pacific Rim Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition, to further my skills and build relationships with industry connections that I would not have been able to engage with on my own."
