5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have never felt more at home than I do here, on campus

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have only been here a few days, but I have heard countless success stories from LMU Alumni

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've felt very safe walking alone at night.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I really enjoy my space here on campus in McCarthy.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Coming from a community college, this is a HUGE upgrade, in terms of the people I've met in my few days here.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life at LMU is not as big as it is at other schools such as USC, but it is still present. I chose not to rush a fraternity because I wanted to focus on school during my first year, but it is something I would like to do this coming school year. Greeks do not treat non-Greeks differently and I find that to be really cool because everyone is mature enough to befriend someone outside of their organizations.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit at LMU is okay. It's not a college town, per say, but people still support the athletic teams. The varsity teams are Division 1 and so they have some pretty good competition. The facilities are nice as the gym is relatively new and maintained well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a great college experience at LMU thus far. The people are friendly and I have been able to make some pretty good friends. The class sizes are small and intimate, just as I had hoped for. I enjoy a class setting where my professor knows my name and I am able to ask questions because they are an expert in their field.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think Public Safety at LMU is the best, we are all safe and especially me being an art major who works better at night, campus security is always there and they'll even walk you if you feel unsafe (which is not a problem for me).

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
