Whether you are a student or a visitor you will find Benedictine hospitality alive and well here at Saint Martin’s. We are guided by our central Benedictine tenets of faith, reason, service and community. Hospitality is fundamental to all four of these tenets and we welcome each of you with that understanding.
Here at Saint Martin's students learn to make a positive difference in their lives and in the lives of others. They are empowered to pursue a lifetime of learning and accomplishment. Graduates of Saint Martin's enter promising careers and/or prestigious graduate programs. When you next meet one of our students or a graduate, ask them about their Saint Martin's experience. You will quickly learn of our excellent faculty, strong academic programs, and robust campus life.
If you have not recently visited campus, you will be in for a treat. You will find a thriving, growing campus with many new buildings and many other campus improvements. There are many new services and programs, too. –Specifically focused on providing you the very best education experience.
This coming fall, we will open and dedicate a new industrial lab building. This new lab space will include fabrication and robotics space and a computer science lab. This building supplements Cebula Hall, our high LEED rated (Platinum and the highest rated building in the Western Hemisphere!) engineering building. In addition, a new tennis center is under construction with covered courts for year-round play. And, a revitalized Pacific Avenue entrance that includes a large number of new oak trees that frame Old Main (built in 1913). Visitors often remark on the beauty, size, and the number of new structures and playing fields that dominate the 380 acre campus.
We, the faculty, staff, and administration at Saint Martin’s, pledge to provide you nothing short of the very best education. For over 1,500 years Benedictines have been actively engaged in education. Saint Martin’s University begins its 120th year of operations this coming fall, founded in 1895. We are the only Catholic, Benedictine university west of the Rockies and proud of it.
When you visit campus, make certain you stop by my office and say hello.
