Saint Martin's University

A Benedictine school, Saint Martin's University has roots that go back to the late 1800s. It was created by monks; as such, students are encouraged to "think, pray, serve, play, and live with heart," according to its website. Saint Martin's has about 1,300 undergraduates — about half are Catholic, and more than a third are first-generation college students. The university has more than two dozen majors and fascinating courses like fluid mechanics, Francophone cinema, white collar crime, and yoga psychology. Students get to enjoy the Pacific Northwest and all it offers, from forests to beaches to mountains to breweries. As a bonus, Portland is located two hours away. Want to hang out on campus? Stop by the TUB, or Trautman Student Union Building, to score $5 movie tickets and free coffee. You can also kick back and watch TV or round up friends for a game of pool.
