Local Atmosphere: The college is not near the city part of LA but there are still many things to do off campus. The beach, Venice, and Santa Monica are all relatively close to LMU.

Off-Campus Dining: Because of it's location it is somewhat difficult to access the off campus dinning areas. As long as you have a car then you should be fine.

5 College Junior

Computers: Just coming to the library you could see how Apple computers are seen as the most popular. The library is filled with the latest in Apple monitors. The network runs very well, but like any place that has many people using the servers there can be some delays.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Being a school that sees many accepted, international students every year, LMU is exposed to a variety of different people. Among the college students here from the states, many of them reside in California.

Health & Safety: LMU constantly has Public Safety patrolling the college ensuring that it is violent free and as safe as possible. There are rare instances of campus crimes and they tend to be dealt with fairly well.

2 College Junior

Athletics: It's very difficult for students to take pride in the school's athletics. However, students still attend the games are do get involved with the sports

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: The school is great for students who have their own opinions and don't necessarily see a need to do any form of drugs. Although it does occur here at the school, students can still find themselves engaged with others who do not choose to do such drugs.

Campus Housing: The campus itself is quite small so it allows for easy commutes to classes. The dorms are great for any student looking to stay on campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I recommend you bring a car. Even though LMU has Lion Express, having a car allows you to have more access to everything. There is actually a ton to do in LA, like First Fridays in Venice or the museums, concerts, etc.

Computers: Computers are all equip with the necessary software needed to work out homework, classwork, labs, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Our campus is small so we don't need transportation across campus, but if you don't have a car on campus we have zip-cars that you can reserve for a certain amount of time. We also have the lion express which is a van that is like a taxi service. Lastly, parking permits are ridiculously expensive, approximately six hundred and fifty dollars per year of school.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Students here are quick to point out that LMU differs from its neighbors USC and UCLA. Overall, LMU is quiet and intimate. Palm trees dot the courtyards between the small buildings. On the exterior, LMU looks like an expensive school. The grounds are neatly manicured and constantly maintained. The school lacks the concrete sterility of a major university, but it possesses the advantages of a big city school-theaters, museums, and celebrities. The biggest contributor to student satisfaction is the size. Students cite a small student body and close ties with professors as the main advantages to an LMU education. Another plus is the lavish facilities, especially the Burns Rec Center with its state-of-the-art fitness center. The academics programs are also a highlight with students. The film school is growing in size and notoriety, while programs in political science, business, and communications are strong points.

On the negative side, a small university still possesses the same problems as a large university. Students repeatedly report problems with a disorganized administration, especially financial aid. Parking and housing are increasing problems that the University is only beginning to address through the addition of new residence halls. LMU is not perfect, but no university is. For students searching for a small, private university, LMU offers advantages that few other universities can provide, namely, a friendly, socially-conscious student body and a curriculum to match.
