When I first got a tour of the school, my first thought was, "This University is Small" however once you take a better look it's a nice size and the people there are so kind. Teachers in the beginning always gives us their exact hours they are available however if you really need help you can contact them and they are always open. Most teachers can teach well but sometimes those who are really into their career may make it hard for us students to understand well. I really don't go to the games or any activities yet because I'm live off campus in MD rather than in VA so it's hard to decide if I want to take my time and stay for a few. Though there's always people around talking and enjoying themselves and activities for students to participate in the front yard. Overall the school is good but I wouldn't say it's excellent as it's just my second year.
Marymount was my top choice university when looking for schools as a high school senior. I am so thankful & grateful that I am a student at this school. Everyone is so open, helpful, & if they do not know an answer to a question you have, they will help you look for it. If you ever feel stuck, there is help on every corner. Never feel as though your situation is too difficult & hard to manage. there is always someone who is willing to assist you.
This is a small university, so if that's not something you're looking into, this is not the place for you. Since this is a small university, it can lack school spirit.
This is a great university academically. The faculty & professors that I've experienced are adamant in helping you succeed. The class environment is professional, but entertaining depending on your professor. The students are also very engaging, so if you're an extrovert, you'll do great.
There are numerous facilities on campus to help students in any way. There's a counseling center, the Center for Teacher & Learning where you can receive tutoring for a subject you need help with from a student who has passed the class already, and much more.
Marymount University is a great environment with great people who are willing to help.
Marymount University shaped me into the person I am today. My professors really pushed me to be the best I could be and they valued my opinion. I was introduced to many global social issues, as well as ones going on in my own community. Because of my internship, I was able to decide what I wanted to do with my career goals. I know even after graduation my professors will still be rooting for me, and will stand in my corner, as well as letting me know about career boasting opportunities. With all that I am able to over look how bad the campus food could be at times, total hit or miss situation, asking around before you dine.
Like every other school, Marymount isn't perfect. But, that doesn't mean it doesn't have great potential. It's a school that really wants students to get involved and prepares them through programs, in class and out. It's small, which means you are able to feel part of the community as soon as you arrive. In addition, you have DC and so much rich history around you which makes the experience even greater.

All students MUST visit the college they are interested in. Do not settle for less! There is a college out there that meets everyone's wants and needs! Also look up some professors that teach at the school of your choice so you know what your getting into. Most of my friends loved their school, but realized they were in the middle of no where. Make sure you take a good look at your campus, but also look at your surrounding areas. Remember you do need a social life and it should not all be spent on campus. Go out and take a load off the books!
Variety of artistic, open, friendly, original, stylish people with different backgrounds.
My school is a small school, where everyone knows everyone. Everyone gets along. there is a lot of school spirit and many different diverse from all over the world.
Parking. There really is not enough as the school is small and commuter based near washington dc.
My school is a private Catholic University. Marymount University has an accelerated BSN program that is 16 months longs for 2nd degree -seeking students. Although, the program is fast and compact, it provides more than enough opportunities for classroom and clinical experience. I have already completed one semester with ease due to the fact that the program is small. There is about ninety students in the 2nd degree program and we are divided into two sections. This allows for more interaction with fellow classmates and more one-on-one time with the professor.
Marymount University is a fantatsic school located in the D.C. area that offers a tremendous private liberal arts education a fraction of the cost of a larger schools in the region. Its political science and healthcare programs are some of the best in the nation, with the latter being accredited by the Commission on Accreditation Healthcare Management, a national institution. Marymount's curiculum also includes a required internship, allowing all students to gain work experience prior to graduation.
Someone who wants a big college with fraternities/sororities and a lot of different activities shouldn't attend this school. This school is a small, Catholic school. The classes are small. There are only 2 options for places to eat. There are no parties on campus, nor fraternities or sororities. We are division 3 for sports. There isn't much school spirit.
If you are willing to work hard and not fool around then you should apply. Professors dont have time for games so unless you are serious about learning don't apply.
I tell my friends that it is a small and close knitt school. The professors are amazing and the people are awesome. Everyone is nice and helpful. Academics is the main focus of the school which is great for me.
I consider the diversity the best, simply because it shows the many different cultures here on campus.
Clubs are bountiful at Marymount and you are always welcome to make one if you have the interest in it. We have a LGBT, gaming club, many singing groups, and my friend and I are working on bringing theater back to Marymount.
Like I said before, there is ALWAYS something to do at Marymount. Every night there is an event for all students to attend, and they are quite popular. Movie nights are always fun AND free!
People at Marymount party, but I'm not sure where seeing that all parties in the dorms are shut down immediately.
Most professors prefer to be called by their first name, or something informal like just being called by their last name. Classes are small, so they WILL learn your name.
I'm majoring in fashion design and all professors in my major have been helpful and knowledgeable when I needed help.
Most if not all classes in my major require materials that can cost quite a lot, which is a problem for a broke college student.
Student study habits at Marymount vary. I know people that study between every class and during any freetime they have, but on the otherhand I know a lot of people who just 'wing it'.
My first two weeks at Marymount were AWFUL. I didn't know anyone, and everyone already seemed to know each other so I instantly felt out of the loop. I went home every weekend for the first month (I only live about an hour away) which I DO NOT recommend. You will miss so many opportunities, as the school sponsors SO MANY EVENTS! Seriously, there is always something to do. Last night I went to a *free* showing of X-Men First Class and tonight I'm participating in Open Mic Night.
The food on campus is decent. For the first week I couldn't eat in the dining hall because every time I did I got sick afterwards, but I guess I just had to get used to it? I'm not sure about that....But Bernie's in the Lee Center has been great from day one. It serves so many different kinds of comfort food, which is great in college. The only downside about Bernie's is that it only counts as part of your meal plan from 12-4ish, and after that you have to pay. It's not expensive, though. Zest/Lola's is another eatery on campus that serves flatbreads, coffee, gelato, and wraps. It opened just last year and not many people know about it because it's hidden over in Ostepanko. (the upperclassmen dorms) Zest/Lola's is NOT a part of your meal plan, which sucks because they make the best food.
The dorms are SMALL. I visited VCU and Marymount my senior year of highschool and VCU's dorms are twice the size of Marymount's. It's not an issue if you are a neat person, but if you are on the messier side you WILL have a problem.
The campus is 'semi-dry', meaning if you're under the age of 21 and caught drinking in the dorms, you will get a suspension and if caught again an expulsion. They aren't too strict about it because I know a lot of people who drink every weekend and have never gotten in trouble for it. Parties are absolutely NOT ALLOWED in any dorm.
The professors are knowledgeable about their subjects, for the most part. I have only had an issue with one professor and he was new, so he was just getting into the swing of things himself. Attendance is recorded in every class, and in most classes if you miss more than 2 classes you get lowered a letter grade for each additional class missed. That is a pain, especially seeing that you're bound to get sick or sleep through your morning class.
DO NOT BELIEVE SITES STATING ONLY RICH, SNOBBY, DUMB PEOPLE GET INTO MARYMOUNT. Really, it's the total opposite.
I was told that everyone at Marymount is snobby and self centered, and I have found that the opposite is true. The only 'snobbiness' I have encountered is with the people on the soccer/LAX/volleyball teams. They are very 'you're either in or out', if you get what I mean.
The stereotype is Christians, prude and geeky.
I go to a Catholic, private school. I do not agree with the stereotype and think everyone is very nice and the faculty and stuff very helpful.
