3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not in greek life

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: school spirit is not very high for sorting events

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: LMU is a great school academically

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).

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I've lived on campus every year that I've been at LMU and it's been a good time. Of course there are the occasional fire alarm pulls, but for the most part everything is clean and the campus is very safe

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I personally do not identify with Greek culture, however, it's pretty great to see so many students getting involved. We have a strict Greek Code that all sororities and fraternities have to follow, so no one gets out of hand, and I think it's just enough enforcement so that people don't get hurt.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletic facilities are top-knotch, and even though the gym is small, it makes sense because our school is small. There are many opportunities to get in shape and LMU really encourages staying fit and healthy.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at LMU has been great. I work with professors who really care about making sure students are engaged in the topics and discussions. My major-specific classes are equally as wonderful as my professors are professionals who teach based off of experience and textbooks.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not involved with greek life on campus but it is a big part. I know many people in fraterinities and sororities but it isn't for me. They do great things for various philanthropies.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic teams at my school are good for the athletes. I enjoy attending the games. I wish a lot more people supported them on campus but there is only so much you can do.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The community that has been created at my scholarship makes everything worth it. The view isn't too bad as well. Everyone helps and looks out for each other and I feel completely safe on campus. I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a lot of great professors that really care about the subjects they teach as well as the students. All of them have been available for help outside of class and are always offering office hours.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: To be honest, I don't know all that much about the career prospects at the school. I am going into my sophomore year and have not figured out my career plan yet. From what I have experienced so far from the career services though, I would say the school has a pretty good program.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. Security works hard to make sure students are safe and they screen everyone driving on to campus at night.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Desmind last year, which is basically considered the worst freshman dorm. There is not a lot of community, it is pretty old and outdated, and was just not a fantastic living situation. However, I know people who lived in other buildings who really enjoyed it. Doheny has a great community, and the Del Reys are much newer and nicer.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a part of Greek life, but I know many people who are and really enjoy being a part of it. Personally I don't view people who are in a sorority or fraternity as being different, however, the different sororities and fraternities each have specific reputations. For example, one frat may be viewed as stuck-up and snobby while another may be viewed as lame and anyone can get in, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I think the athletic facilities at LMU are great. There is a variety of things to do at the gym, and there are several workout classes offered. I also like the pool and basketball courts.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had a great freshman year and am looking forward to the rest of my time at LMU. Although very challenging, I also found my classes interesting and I really enjoyed them. I have met so many awesome people during my time there and am happy with my decision to attend LMU.

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.
