Saint Michael’s College is among 200 colleges and universities – just 7 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges – to be included in the new 2018 edition of The Princeton Review book Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck .
Two Saint Michael’s students and a recent graduate are co-authors on a paper that recently was accepted to the peer-reviewed Journal of Mathematical Chemistry. "The students did very strong work here,” said Jo Ellis-Monaghan of the College’s mathematics faculty, who with Greta Pangborn of the computer science faculty was a co-author and mentor to the students in their research. Student co-authors on the paper were current Saint Michael’s seniors Rebecca Rouleau ‘18 and Anna Cook ’18, and recent graduate Alana Houlihan ’17.
More than 70 Saint Michael’s College students will be studying in 23 different countries during this Spring 2018 semester. “Whether they are learning about wildlife conservation in Tanzania, human rights in Argentina, or doing an internship in New Zealand, our students are spreading their wings and figuring out what it means to go beyond their comfort zones,” said Peggy Imai, director of the College’s Study Abroad Office. She said 22 Saint Michael’s students studied abroad during the Fall 2017 semester, and five students also spent the recent winter session studying art, culture and philosophy in Nepal.
