Office of the President

Welcome to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College!

It is summer at The Woods. And, although you might think it is a quiet, sleepy, serene place to be with no students around, I am reminded daily of just how vibrant and brilliant this campus is.

June welcomed the start of a new term for our online students and a new beginning for over 50 art therapy and music therapy students starting their masters and staying in Le Fer Hall! Soon, we’ll be seeing incoming freshmen and their parents on campus for registration.

We look forward to nearly 350 alums taking over the campus for the 2015 Reunion, which is always so much fun. And, then the summer camp students arrive for two weeks to learn about nursing, STEM, art, biking and horses, of course.

You can see students, staff and Sisters of Providence biking around campus on our new Pomeroy blue bikes, and everyone is just enjoying this wonderful place. I invite you to come out this summer—bring a picnic lunch, visit the horses and alpacas, bring a prospective student for a tour, take photos of the gorgeous scenery or find a peaceful, spiritual moment at the Grotto—together this is our place. I invite you to come home to enjoy the Woods!
