What is your overall opinion of this school?

LMU is a good school where most professors really care for your education and want to help you succeed. Regarding fun times, it is what you make it. You definitely have to go look for it; it doesn’t often just happen to be there. Your whole experience in college is what you make it and it mostly depends on you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

LMU is great if you're looking for a university where you have the opportunity to be involved outside of the classroom and meet a lot of kind, like-minded individuals. These are by far my two favorite parts of the university: the extracurricular involvement and the quality of the people. I have been able to join enough clubs and orgs to keep me busy and intellectually/creatively engaged on campus, and through these clubs and orgs I have met people who I feel are going to be my life-long friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a senior and I have loved attending this school. LMU was originally my safety choice but I ultimately chose it because I liked the campus, the small classes, the location and the financial aid package (most importantly haha). As a Freshman I thought that I was just settling for an okay school since I had other options that were more "prestigious", but fortunately enough, LMU is NOT a school you just settle for. I am not going to say it is the most amazing school ever and everyone who has a negative review about it is wrong, everyone is entitled to their opinion and I'm sure there is legitimacy. However, LMU is truly a gem. From my experience, the professors have been AMAZING (as a Biology/Health and Human Science major). Almost all of my professors have consistently gone out of their way to accommodate me to ensure I succeed in their class, they will always put in as much work as you are willing to, and then some. Of course there has been the occasional terrible teacher (very few I assure you), but that is a reality on all college campuses. Classes are always small and intimate which has been really beneficial to my learning, and great for creating good relationships with my peers as well. The administration at LMU is very helpful and respectful, except for maybe the Financial Aid office. Unfortunately, I've heard that is common for many schools. The people I've met in my three years have been spectacular. I guess it all depends who you surround yourself with, but I have been lucky to be surrounded by such supportive, diverse, intelligent and accomplished peers and staff. Those who are worried about diversity (particularly racial and religious), I have found that most of the students and faculty are kind, accepting, and supportive. Even though LMU is still mostly a white campus, they have always pushed for diversity and therefore have increased the amount of resources, support systems, and environments for other minorities. I have also seen an increase in international students over the years. As a minority, I have always felt welcome a this school. Many people are turned off by the Jesuit focus of LMU, including myself, but once you attend you'll be relieved to find that nothing is forced upon you. There is a significant amount of jesuit and catholic resources on campus, but they are there for the people who want them. The best thing, imo, about LMU's jesuit focus is the emphasis on service. Again, no one is guilted or forced into doing service, but there are so many opportunities available. And the service ranges from all different types, and are, believe it or not, actually very fun! One of the best things I've done was joining a service organization. The people I've met, the conversations I've had, and the connections I've built have been next to none due to my service org. Of course, there are other on-campus activities and clubs like greek life, various cultural and ethnic clubs, interest clubs, sports clubs, and academic frats. Also, I have to add one more thing; the campus. It seems unimportant but honestly it made a difference for me. The campus is, simply put, beautiful. I guess that is subjective, but I think many would agree the campus is very well kept and the views are breathtaking. It also helps that we have the benefit of LA seasons and weather, but also the benefit of the coastal coolness. Some of the biggest complaints about LMU are its party scene, athletics, and surrounding area. The parties that go on around LMU are often in houses in residential areas, so that means loud/rowdy parties are often shut down by midnight or at the latest 1am. LMU's atmosphere is more accommodating to lowkey, kickbacks. Nonetheless, there is still a fair amount of party goers that seem to have found a balance and there is certainly a presence of marijuana and alcohol on campus. The athletics at LMU are not very impressive and, although the athletes are still amazing athletes and the teams are D1, they are not the most "winningest". This does mean that the school spirit at games and on-campus aren't as present as bigger schools like USC. Still, many of our teams do make it pretty far in their division like our soccer, basketball and baseball teams (and I'm sure many others that I may not be aware of). The immediate surrounding area of LMU is more akin to a suburban area. What I mean to say is that it is not in the heart of downtown LA. There are still plenty of places to eat, shop, and play but very little nightlife. Despite this, there is still nothing you can't reach with a 10 minute drive or uber. In fact, the location of LMU is a prime area for MANY internship and job opportunities due to its proximity to silicon beach and many large media and entertainment companies. (If you're interested in the healthcare field, a lot of hospitals/medical centers and therapy clinics too). Also, the beach is 15 minutes away :) Sorry this was so long but I felt like helping out all of those HS juniors and seniors researching schools since I remember what that was like. Also, I wanted you to keep in mind that whatever you get out of school is directly related to what you put in. I have had a fantastic experience at LMU because I put myself out there; I dabbled in many clubs before finding my passions, collaborated with my peers as much as possible, and researched and asked about all of the resources available to me. Might as well if you're gonna spend thousands of dollars for a piece of paper, right?! Pls remember, the most important thing is to find a school that matches your wants/needs and find one you know you can be happy at. A more prestigious school doesn't always mean a better school. Take care and have fun kids! And good luck!

Loyola Marymount University is BEAUTIFUL! Everyone has a different background that everyone can appreciate. Lions look out for each other. There are so many opportunities to explore at LMU. I mostly appreciate the sense of community on campus and the accessibility of resources on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The professors are amazing and the classes are engaging. The campus is beautiful and located in such a wonderful area. Not in downtown LA, which makes it a bit safer and less congested, but close enough to downtown to have plenty to do off-campus if you are willing to drive or get a taxi. I love LMU!

I am very excited to attend Loyola Marymount University as I have visited the college and I know the place is the right home for me. The reason that I really am excited to attend is because of the academics offered, the welcoming community, as well as the ability to find amazing times in the area.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Loyola Marymount University is a campus where you can find many things to get involved in that relate to your interests. Everyone here is very friendly and open since it is a smaller campus. Also being a smaller campus it is pretty easy to build a relationship with your professors which I love about the university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is for those who want a great and fulfilling education. I love this school so much because there's a big emphasis on personal success and development as an individual, not only academics. They have a variety of career opportunities that aren't solely limited to upperclassmen students. Loyola is also partnered with many organizations and communities which give students the chance to make significant professional connections. From my personal experience, Loyola is an amazing place to attend. First of all, the campus is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Many people come to the school just to take their professional (and Instagram ) photos. There's also a student-run coffee shop called the Lion's Den that I'll have to say is better than Starbucks in my opinion! (It's also a hell of a lot cheaper.) But for those who cant curb their love for Starbucks, there's also one on campus located in the library. Which definitely has come in handy for the long study sessions. Frats and Sororities are mostly doing something almost every other day, so it's customary to see a group of greek life walking around in packs going to their events. Overall this school is great if you enjoy small classrooms, easy access to professors (including one-on-one time), an overall tight-knit community, and a pretty easygoing vibe that comes with the school.
