Marywood University Top Questions

What's unique about your campus?


I entered as a non-traditional student, already having a diploma in nursing. They worked with me and din't make me repeat what I already took. The professors there were A+ and helped me to better myself. The school itself is beautiful and my BSN included a lot of liberal arts, making me well-rounded. They taught me the process of critical thinking which was invaluable in Amy career as a Nurse Practitioner.


The best thing about Marywood University is the kindness and genuine hearts of all of the faculty and fellow students. Everyone is so polite and very understanding. Not a single day went by last year when someone did not hold open a door for me or go out of their way to show their respect. This makes it so much easier to get comfortable if you are new to the school.


I think the close knit community that exists at Marywood is the best thing about my school. There is not a huge amount of competition and pressure to the be "the best". Students and faculty are supporitve of one another. This attitude helps to make Marywood a welcoming place and somewhere that students want to be. Some people may not like the idea of a small school, but, in my opinion, the benefits far outweigh any possible negatives.


Marywood College educates the whole person body mind and soul. This helped to make me a better person and better prepared for the real world.




To me, Marywood is like a home away from home. Along with having a spectacular campus, that is not too large, there is not an over-abundance of students, so knowing a lot of people is not uncommon. Also, I like the way that the universities classes are set up. With a low number of students in each class, the professors are able the help the students individually.


The professors are, for the most part, very accomodating. I knew that if I needed help with my work or a class, that the professor would be there to speak with me about my troubles. This eased my mind on many an occassion, since I was a transfer student and knew nothing about the university other than what I had heard. After speaking with the professors themselves, I realized that they would not ignore me, and would answer my questions, ease my fears, and aid me in ceasing my worrying.


I love the small classroom sizes! It's so nice having professors who can know you by name because they have more time to help answer your individual questions than professors at large universities would. I feel like I would be completely lost at a large university, because I wouldn't have the opportunity to ask my professors specific questions.


The best thing about my school is our instructors. I am going into the social work profession and my instructors are social workers. They have a great deal of experience and do so much volunteer work. Specifically, I enjoy hearing the work of Professor Bill Bender. He has an AIDS support group and is helping rebuild reading. He has encouraged me and I am helping with the rebuilding reading project.


It's small. My professors know me and I know almost everyone on campus


I think what makes Marywood great is the students. Since we are a smaller school we have the ability to not only make great friendships, but also to have a say in what goes on at our school. It is very easy to become involved, whether you live on or off campus. Campus is a very welcoming place to be. Despite our small size, there is always a great student turnout at sporting events, volunteer programs, and campus activities. No matter where you go, you will always see a familiar face, but also see new faces and make new friends.


Marywood, was my first choices and my only choice when I got excepted here I was so happy. The reason I pick Marywood was it was close to home, I love the campus it so pretty. With my learing disiplity, I there are people here to help me. I am apart of the Act 101 program here at Marywood, Sister Agnes Mary Devitt would bend backwards for you if she could. That what I love about Marywood everyone is like that, and that why I picked Marywood.


Its student to teacher ratio. There is one teacher for every 20 or so students makes working and learning easier.


Best thing about the college campus is the surrounding area. Shopping area is close by and also parks too.


Students at Marywood have the best of both worlds, the suburban town of Dunmore and the city of Scranton. The town of Dunmore offers everyday conveniences such as grocery stores and pharmacies while Scranton offers a nightlife, shopping, and entertainment. Both can be reached by the Smartbus provided at no cost for Marywood students. I really enjoy the location because I feel at home and safe in a residential neighborhood but can also access the many opportunities the city of Scranton provides. Marywood is safe, friendly, and has plenty to do!


The best thing about my school would have to be the neatness and respect. Most people are very respectful towards others. I love that my school is clean and people are kind.


The threate department!
