4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I personally have lived on campus for three years and plan to live on campus for my fourth as well. Factoring in the free laundry and cleaning services, common areas, access to study rooms and computer labs, and meal plan options, campus housing is a great deal. Ostapenko is a great option for those wanting an apartment feel without having to leave campus. Berg is probably the worst, but it is in a great location on campus. The housing process is a little stressful, but if you plan ahead and know what you want, it is usually easy to obtain. I have had a wonderful experience living in Rowley, Gerard, and now St. Joe's. All of them have been kept very clean, including the bathrooms. Currently, my living situation is great - bathroom has been completely renovated with all new fixtures and doors, my own controllable heating and air conditioning units, and a large desk and dresser. The RAs do a great job of encouraging students to participate in programs to get to know new people and create a welcoming, comfortable environment.

Athletics: Athletics are strong here, but there is much room for improvement. I think that there is student involvement but mainly at important games (rival matches, homecoming, etc.). There is not an even distribution of fans at the different sports either. The facilities are very good, given that we have a very small school and a small campus. The gyms are renovated, clean, and professional looking. The athletics department has a strong presence on campus as well. There are great coaches for some teams, and poor for others - this is reflected in the morale of the different teams we have. Some have great morale and work together well and are successful. Others, have poor morale and it does not bring the team close together.

Health & Safety: Safety and security on campus is not taken lightly. The school is located in a safe environment and security enforcement are always available when needed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Since the classes are small it is easier to create a relationship with classmates and professors instead of being just a number. The professor are very helpful in making sure their students have complete understanding of the subject being taught.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very convenient, especially for the proximity to classes. However, living on campus tends to feel like boarding school, especially since it is a small school. Enforcement rules are very strict and the floor plans are very constricted, lacking privacy.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would not choose this school again if I could do it all over again mainly due to the lack of opportunities and activities for all students.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I think security is pretty good. If you are working late in the lab or studio, the security guard comes to check up on you to make sure you are safe and to remind you that they are just one call away if something happens.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I am a commuter, so I don't know much, but based on visits to friends' dorms and their comments, the dorms seem pretty okay.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: There is no Greek life.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love being part of Marymount University. The professors are great. The thing that I absolutely love about Marymount is the small size of its classes. The small size of classes allow the instructor to focus on each student as an individual. The location of Marymount is great too, especially from internships and employment perspective. One more thing that I adore of Marymount is its tens of Study Abroad Programs. I have been to two countries for two different programs and I cannot describe how wonderful of a learning and personal experience it has been.

The staff of Marymount is very good too. Everyone is keen on helping you. I have never come across a staff member talking or behaving unprofessionally there. They are always kind and listen to your whole issue and then go above and beyond to help you.

Athletics: I am not an athletic person and I also am not on campus for long enough to attend one of the athletic events.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: With how much I pay for tuition I should be getting much more

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I really haven't been in them but I give my opinion from what I've seen

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It just needs to be tweaked here and there and then it'll be a school students would actually want to attend

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's so far been a smooth first semeter

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I came from a small high school so a small University was ideal. I often had classes with less than 10 students. You were able to get to know the teachers well which was helpful in many ways. The only issue I had was with advisors. I had to figure out everything on my own; how to get an internship, how to make sure I was eligible to graduate, etc.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school I attend is great in terms of it not being o large on an academic stance because its easier to receive help, the teachers know you by name and there are free tutoring programs. But on the downside the school is smaller than a high school. Personally I dont like that for the simple fact I believe people are scared to fully enjoy the "college experience"

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am a transfer student from a junior college, and the school I transferred to is smaller than my junior college. I enjoy it but, the only thing I don't enjoy is that there is no air conditioning. My school is a great school and all the professors care about everybody and all my professors know every bodies name. I get help when I need it.

Overall Experience: What I love about Marymount is the proximity to Washington, D.C. I can just take the metro into the city and be able to go to the museums or the National Mall pretty much whenever I want. The size of the school itself is perfect, it's easy to know many people on campus but yet there will still be strangers in classes. Overall I have had a great experience here, I cannot wait for the next three years.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It offers a great program in a rare specialty that I have a lot of interest in. Though I am a new student, the small amount of interaction I have had with the faculty and staff has been incredibly helpful and pleasant.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I attend Marymount University and I think "Its Great" instead of "Its The Best". The location for me it great, it's very close to Washington DC, where I live. And there's plenty of places to go when student want to get off campus. It's diversity makes it unique; there are students from all over the country and world. I think diversity in race/ethnicity and cultures makes for a better college experience. And because Marymount isn't a massive school, these diversities are shared amongst the students.

Marymount would be the best if the tuition and financial aid was better, but most colleges need more reasonable tuition fees and costs.

Overall Experience: Marymount's small class sizes and ability to connect with professors is the best. We are also only six miles from the nation's capitol, which makes it all the better. Marymount has 35 clubs, plenty of leadership opportunities, and outstanding resources. I just wish the food options were better!

Off-Campus Housing: Private ownership always entices students to rent their places. College towns has become reliant on the students as a source of income.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The general area is in close proximity to the Washington D.C area, thereby giving the students access to the party atmosphere in D.C
