Our son is a senior at STM. He has achieved everything we could have possibly imagined since our very first visit to the campus almost 4 years ago. Yes, we are happy. But more importantly, he is happy. Of the 7 colleges he has applied to, he has been accepted to 4 and is wait listed for another. He has received substantial merit scholarships to each accepting college. We believe this is a direct reflection of the effort he has put forth and the guidance he has received. Go Chancellors
