The student body is pretty diverse and accepting of all people. However, because it is such a small school, drama tends to happen and gossip spread pretty fast. Even still, most students are focused people who still like to enjoy their time.

Its a beautiful campus. The student center is great. The library isn't huge, but it has everything you'll need. There's usually something interesting to do on campus.

Its a smooth ride at Marymount. The professors are always willing to work with you if you're having troubles and their offices hours are good.

Small Hassels – Enrolling for classes was pretty simple, but registering for Spring classes was pretty stressful due to the lack of classes available. I wish attendance wasn't such a big issue.

I haven't taken an online course, but I've heard good things.

My school is pretty small and hands-on. The people who work at career services really get to know who you are and work hard to find the most suitable path to further us students.
College Junior 2013-06-06T02:24:15Z
small class sizes really allow the teachers to know you as an individual.

Some professors seemed very interested in what they were teaching and showed enthusiasm to be in that class with us. They were engaged and showed interest on how our day was and especially tried making finals much more bearable for all of us. Everything the professors taught us was useful and they made our exams much more easy and fun.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The education is great however, the financial aid has changed dramatically this fall 2013. Last year I thought the financial aid package was great but this year it has increased a lot and some of my friends and myself believe its because it turned into a university.

There is no doubt that there is diversity, however people are just comfortable with who they can relate to and whom they are most like. Its a place where people are more focused on their studies.

The internet is often very slow or does not work at all. Overall the school website is easy to use, however, teachers do not always follow it or update their page.
College Sophomore 2013-05-10T01:40:56Z
The unique thing about Marymount is that it is very small and intimate. All of the teachers know you by your first name and take the time to get to know you as an individual. However, most of the students seem to "not want to be here" and don't have many passions and do not want to be involved. Although, the people that do want to be involved make the campus a better place by putting activities and events in place.
College Sophomore 2013-05-10T01:38:08Z
Overall, faculty and staff have been very accepting, understanding, and flexible. It has been a smooth experience to figure out what classes I need to transfer.
College Sophomore 2013-05-10T01:34:23Z
There are many resources available for extra help in classes. However, some of the teachers are very mediocre. In addition, campus activities are very unorganized and the majority of students are uninterested.

The most difficult part of college for me was planning out my courses for the fist semester. Advisors tend to register students for the basic classes that a typical student needs, but they don't look forward in how a student can progress faster.
College Junior 2013-04-10T22:08:46Z
As a transfer student, learning the fundamentals of math and science in a small class size is going to be very beneficial to me in my future academia. I am able to approach my professors with questions about the lectures and they can give me an immediate response without the means of email.
College Junior 2013-04-10T22:03:09Z
Since there is a small student population at Marymount College, it is easy to approach faculty and staff with questions and concerns. I am transferring from Marymount College to a prestigious University with an engineering program. I feel prepared transitioning from Marymount College to any University I select.
College Junior 2013-03-28T03:04:38Z
There are several campuses and it's very easy to commute to all of them.
College Junior 2013-03-28T03:03:01Z
I love how flexible the school is becoming. We're growing as a school and making a stronger name for ourselves

This school is absolutely wonderful academically. If your one who needs time to decide what path you wish to follow or have found school as a struggle in the past, this is the place for you. Here at Marymount they take any student from where they are and help to rebuild you to be successfuly academically as well as in the person that you are. Since the school is so small, you are able to make it what you want and that's the true beauty about Marymount, it's really about you. The downside of Marymount is the social aspect. I have found many people to be cold and superficial, as you will find in Southern California. Some find it hard to fit in with the other students here, but school wise it is absolutely wonderful and a great place to grow.

People here can be alright though in my experience hard to relate to. The student body has gone way down hill since last year though. A lot of unnecessarily rude, disrespectful and immature people. Plus politically I don't 100% bond with people here because I grew up in liberal West La and there is an extraordinary amount of conservatives so I don't feel I can freely express my political opinions here unless I'm certain a person has similar views to me. I've seen a lot of negative posts on facebook by marymount students toward people who support Obama which I wasn't fond of. Nothing against conservatives but I don't appreciate my intelligence being called into question because I'm a registered democrat.

Marymount College, what can I say? Don't get me wrong I have a lot of fond memories here and have met a few wonderful people and really kind staff but overall I feel like Marymount is deeply flawed; here's why:
1) It's a very small school and somewhat cliquey, if your friend group isn't established within the first week of orientation it can be exceedingly difficult to meet people. Another disadvantage to a small school is that there's a lot of gossip and more likely to get into the rumor mills (even if it's against your will). Plus it can get incestuous when it comes to hookups which I think is pretty gross.
2) What people fail to mention is that a lot of people with severe emotional problems also go here. (I had a stalker my freshman year) plus a lot of people are just kind of strange but not necessarily in a good way. Which can make housing situations problematic (I've been roomed with a lot of emotionally unstable people).
3) Administration sucks at handling conflicts with housing and practically encourages bullying! Not to mention the dorms are in a pretty unsavory part of town.
4) The food is mostly terrible and has made a lot of people (myself included) sick.
5) A lot of extremely immature people.
6) The BA program is fairly new and from what I've heard it's a mixed bag, I'm not doing it but they're still trying to smooth things out.
7) It's easy to become a hermit here.
The plus side:
1) More one on one help with work, professors get to know you.
2) Overall helpful and friendly faculty and staff. (especially the bus drivers and security).
3) First Thursdays are great fun, especially for artsy people. :)
4) A good place for someone who thrives in small environments.
5) A view that is to die for!

The main reason I chose this school was because of how flexible the class schedules are.
College Junior 2013-02-08T18:19:07Z
My school has a ride share program that is really helpful.
College Junior 2013-02-08T18:18:13Z
I felt like a number, like I was swept under the rug after commencement. It's as if the school's sole focus is to find new fresh and happy faces for their prospective pamphlets.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
