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

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Dining off campus is always a good alternative.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The policy surrounding strictness is great because it allows for the persons who have come to study and further their education to do so in a safe and secure environment.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: All scholarships that I have received so far are Federal Scholarships. Private Scholarships are hard to come by.

Campus Food: Dietary content of food is inadequate for the general development of the brain.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm rooms should be at least 10 sq. ft bigger

3 College Senior

Athletics: we had division 3 sport levels at MU. School spirit is there but not for sports. Not many people pay attention to sports for college.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I do not know many people who house-off on campus. You either live nearby and drive to school or live on campus. Arlington is an expensive area to live in. Most students are locals and live with their parents to save mooney.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dinning is great. There are many restaurant to choose from at any time of the day. Very convenient from campus. You can walk or take the shuttle bus to grab a good place to eat. The cost is average depending where you go. There are a couple of student discount restaurants which lots of people like to take advantage of. The best place I would recommend is going to El Pollo Rico for delicious Peruvian rotisserie chicken and Mario’s! Mario’s is open 24/7 and has the best cheese steak that can rival the original cheese steak from philly.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Great place to for a bar scene is Clarendon. People go for drinks and socializing. If you are under 21 I would say dorm gathering are fun too. If all does fails D.C. is a couple miles away.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: My experience with financial aid was a bit of a hassle. The members that worked in the department was every helpful but seemed to always rush you and get on to the next person. The MU financial aid office number is very helpful. I would be on hold for no less than 5 minutes. They answered my questions thoroughly. My financial aid did not cover most of my classes at MU I had to pay some out of pocket and take out student loans. Once you had the paper work through you can sign out for classes and you don’t need to pay immediately which is great, instead you pay a certain percentage every 2 months.

Campus Food: There are lots of varieties at school to eat. For the ones that do not like the food or are very picky, there are many nearby restaurants from fast food to fine dining. The dining halls is huge with plenty of space to choose where to sit. The menus at school have a very healthy choices and if you don’t want to be healthy there are some food for your cravings. The cost of the food can be expensive but there are specials and discounts on certain day to save a few bucks.

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, I commute to Marymount. I do have many friends who dorm at MU. From their opinions they love living on campus, it's like a second home to them. The dorms are very well kept and clean. Many people around are really approachable and easy to talk too. The cost might be a little high due to the fact that MU is a private university, that's probably the only complain I hear around the dorms. The dorms are literally walking distance from the main build which people can leave 5 minutes before class and still make it on time with time to spare. The ones who do not have classes in the main build take the MU buses to class. The bus system at MU is very well organized with peak hours the bus comes every 10 minutes. I would give Marymount a 9/10! There is always room to improve but with my experience I have had an excellent experience.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus security and what not isn't too serious, but they know when to put the hammer down

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was ok, nothing too hard but it was little long.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus food is absolutely terrible.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All of the classes are relatively close to each other, however the dorms are not that great in some halls.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are decent options for food to eat along Glebe road and Ballston.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It is a god damn Catholic school. It's going to be more strict than a normal public college.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: This school is expensive as hell, and the tuition continues to rise. Get as much money as you can for this school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The Gerard dining hall food is often hit and miss.

WOW is a great option for people who want fast food.

Lola's is great too, but you can't purchase food with swipes. You can only get food from here only with cash or dining dollars, which often are limited depending on the meal plan.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: While some of the dorms are average at best, some of the dorms like Butler have issues like mold that have not been dealt with properly as far as I know.

While the dorms are really close to the different buildings where classes are held for residents, commuter students usually have a hard time finding a parking spot on campus without having to be on campus very early in the morning.

Since Marymount is a small school, there are many social cliques and many people tend to not go outside of those cliques.

The process for reapplying for housing is god awful, I wish you luck.
