Beautiful campus with a lot of opportunities. LionJobs makes finding a job easy. You can easily double major or have minors because there are so many degree programs offered by LMU. The food is way above average for campus food, and it's close to a number of good restaurants. Close to a bunch of beaches and LA landmarks - you can see Hollywood Sign from campus! Fun atmosphere and great weather - would recommend.

Seriously there is no better place to be. The bluff on lmu's campus overlooks LA, stretching from the Hollywood sign all the way to the beach. The school is absolutely beautiful and anyone would agree with that statement. The classes are challengin, depending on the professor, but I have learned SO MUCH. LMU has set core classes that focus on the education of the whole person. I have truly enjoyed my core classes and all of my professors. Everyone at lmu is so talented and super friendly. You can't go wrong with this school. I easily got an internship with a celebrity interview company my freshman year and I wasn't even looking for an internship! The connections in LA cannot be beat. LMU is going to provide all of its students with a successful future.

lmu has something for everyone. there's always a party if you're looking for one. there are so many unique educational opportunities, especially for those with learning disabilities. lmu listens to students. for example, students recently petitioned to make lmu a fair trade campus, and now, all lmu products are fair trade. the campus is beautiful and the gym is top notch, along with all of lmu's other facilities. you can really tell that every penny is put to good use here. turn left, there's the beach, turn right, there's the city, stay where you are, and you'll be surrounded by a caring, friendly, diverse, active, and rich community with tons of fun things to do on campus 24/7. you'll never be bored here. lmu cares about student safety above all else and is proactive and transparent about any reports made to public safety. lmu also requires new students to take classes about partying and forming relationships safely which sounds lame but it's all been fun and informative. go lions!
