4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Marymount California University is very close knit to Loyola Marymount University and students that transfer or go to graduate school at LMU had a great chance of getting in because of attending MCU. The career prospects are great from what I;ve heard, but I am not completely sure yet because I have not yet received my degree. The campus offers career fares to assist students with deciding what they would like to do after they receive their Bachelor's Degree.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: As a business major at Marymount California University, we have to take more ethics and accounting class than the average students. Although it seems like a heavy course load, the professor teaches us in a way that we can apply to our day to day lives as well as apply to an exam in class. This program is rigorous, but completely prepares us for what's to come if we decide to go on to a graduate program. After receiving an undergraduate degree, there are numerous job opportunities in many industries as a business major because being a business major allows you the luxury of choosing two concentrations. This diversifies your undergraduate degree and gives you an opportunity to work in multiple areas.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: After reviewing the university and deciding to apply, once the admission advisors realized my ambition and desire to complete my undergraduate education, they reached out to me several times during the admission process to get letters of recommendation, letters from myself explaining my personal background, and decided to admit me and even add in the university based grant to help pay for my tuition. I have never been accommodated in such a way it made me excited to walk onto a campus and know I will receive the help I need without being turned away and unable to pursue my education. Marymount California University believes is getting to know their students personally to identify and assist with any and every need possible to make sure we all succeed.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The class schedule and course offering made it rather difficult to have a specific time in which I would be able to practice and often I was left with getting the 8 am business class which made it difficult to get to school as I am a commuter and my brothers have school as well. The teachers and now they are late classes in which it made I difficult to take the bus at night. No priority given to athletics.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: It was mostly just discussions and individual projects, however it was informative and for the most part it was as good as an online class can get, discussions tried to get people involved.

4 College Freshman

Career Services: The ability to get a masters at the same institution is the best thing in the way tat you make more long term connection with your professors as well as getting the full support of the school. The teachers will readily help in the job search as well as pulling strings, we recently had a student get a job at space x

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being at a school that is a liberal arts school isn't that great in the variety sense however they do try to update course offering frequently as they have added a coding and other programming as well as the addition of a new campus specifically for arts and media. The courses are very thorough in the lessons they teach and most of the time make it a good environment.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The university has an area dedicated to getting people an internship as well as a job listing of people looking to hire students as well as a staff member heading the section. There are several people who are hired and have attended Marymount.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: A lot of the teachers that teach are adjunct professors who teach at other colleges such as USC and others as another job giving us the benefit of a higher level education. Also three out of the seven classes I have at Marymount have had successful businesses or have worked at a successful company under a high position. Also they have many connections offering internships and ways to get your foot in the door.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had a great first semester here. I am on the golf team and found that the teachers really accommodate to the needs of the student as well as help them when falling behind or to improve. In having such a small school everyone knows everyone and it is a great thing to know that you can trust the students to be open and inviting to new students and staff.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: No A/C in housing and it gets really hot.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I only don't like how the houses don't have A/C, so it does get hot but other than that I love the location and weather.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: its an okay school. I like that it is small and can have a one-to-one relationship with the teacher. The professors know your name. The staff are extremely nice and very helpful.

Campus Resources: Accessibility to administration is definitely one of the highlights of this school. Any issues were resolved nearly immediately in the two years that I went here.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I sometimes had difficulty getting classes because they conflicted with other ones, but the faculty was really helpful with ensuring that it would sort out for me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the view from the classrooms. It's definitely what got me through stressful days.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoyed the personal feel that was created through small class sizes. It was easy to build a close relationship with faculty because everyone seemed to be available and they were not overcrowded with students they don't even recognize.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I did not have much trouble going into the program, but I did feel a bit lost for a while.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Since there is such a large amount of international students that do not speak English fluently, there was a tendency of people to not mingle very much. People would only speak to those that spoke their language. Otherwise, everyone was really nice and helpful amongst one another.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I did receive a sufficient amount of financial aid, but I wish there had been more options for scholarships for summer school. I wish I hadn't had to take out so many loans to go to such a small, limited school.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Almost all of my classes the entire time I was at Marymount were in the same three classrooms. While I understand that this is because of unavoidable circumstances, it was easy to become jaded quickly. Also, there are a small number of professors, leading to some teaching a subject that they did not seem to be very knowledgeable about.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There are a decent number of options at this school, but there could easily be more. Professors were come and go, sometimes I would get one that genuinely cared, while other times they would be lazier than most students. I would have preferred more consistency in professors.

2 College Freshman

Student Body: There is a lot of diversity among the student body, but there isn't a lot of acceptance within the community. I, for example, don't drink, but it's become so much of a social thing that people judge me for it instead of just understanding. I don't make a big deal out of it, and have no problem with other people drinking so long as they know how to handle themselves accordingly. But the judgement based on my preferences regarding drinking/partying make the general student body here seem pretty ignorant and superficial.

2 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I've experienced nothing pertaining to my specific major yet. In order to experience the 'unique aspects' of my program, I have to be at least a Junior, but I hate the school so much that I'm going to transfer out of it long before then.

Class Registration Process: Very easy, this was good.

Workload: Very easy, very little work to be done.
