You Got It! The Professors at Marymount allow the students to be very studious. From my experience the curriculum most the Professors encourage students to do well and to make it a class competition. I had a professor that make the top five students exempt from the final.
When it comes to registering for classes it is fair. The seniors and juniors register first then the sophomores then the freshmen. Although it is fair I feel that the classes they provide during fall are not provided during the spring. Another thing, since they want small classes and only provide a few of the same classes they fill up too quickly thus causing one to be on the wait list and having a small chance of getting the class.
The workload depending on the professor may be a lot, but from my experience it is nothing I couldn't handle. Every assignment assigned to me has always been completed before it is due.
When it comes to studying and help for a class the Learning center is there. The learning center provides free tutoring and allows students to group study. There are peer tutors and professional tutors assiting to your needs.

Computer Problem! Marymount has a problem with their computer system. They have 2 classrooms with around 20 mac computers, and only about 7 in the tutoring area. If students need to use a computer to print and all 7 are taken, they are out of luck. A new area needs to be build or arranged where it has way more computers than 7. And the 40 mac computers are for media classes which is unfair to the students who need to use a computer.

The student center is great , people are able to play pool or watch tv every so often and one new game I had never played was ping-pong but here in Marymount I learned how to play it and it has been very fun to have these games for us during our free time. However, something that would be nice for them to add is a new gym!
