What's your overall opinion of Marymount California University?

5 Students rated Marymount California University


Marymount is a small college. That is both a good thing and a bad thing. The good news is, every body knows each other. The students are familiar with each other, the teachers all know you, the staff, including the shuttle drivers, will always remember your face. The bad news? Everyone knows each other. If you get into some kind of scandalous drama at the dorms or somewhere on campus, everyone is bound to know about it. Everyone is going to know your name. Also, the new president that moved in in the Spring term of 2017 is making budget cuts left and right. He's focusing more on aesthetic of the school, but not on the education of the students. However, if you are a business or a psychology major, you're in luck because Marymount loves those types of students and makes sure they receive the best education possible. However, if you're an art student, besides majoring in photography, you should avoid this school. Marymount buys all sorts of equipment and has a ton of internships and opportunities for its photography students, but not for any other art major. With the others, the curriculum in general seems very basic, and you're not getting as much as much as you paid for in terms of education. I should also point out that besides photography, there is very little network here, so good luck getting into the industry!


My overall rating for this school is a 4. The campus itself is very nice, has an amazing view of Catalina Island, which overall gives the campus a nice aesthetic. The professors are always willing to help you when needed, you can either call, text, email or talk​ during office hours.


Marymount has a great science department; however, there are a lot of problems with Marymount and if it weren't for the science department and the professors in this department, I would not be at Marymount. The class sizes are small so it is very one on one with professors which is really nice.


Marymount California University has a phenomenal view. It was love at first sight. The class sizes are great, which makes it perfect if you don't understand what's being taught. You could contact the professors and they'll assist you. There's also tutoring opportunity's. The environment around campus is a nice calm and suttle scene.
