4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The guard house is occupied 24/7 and is easy to get in touch with. Security officers take turns walking around campus every once in a while to make sure nothing suspicious is going on.

Overall Experience: You are required to have experience in an internship in order to graduate. There is a website called jobs4saints that has a bunch of local listings of internships, full time, and part time jobs which is really easy to navigate and filter to fit your needs

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are small. There are never usually more than 15 people in a class. There is a lot of one on one time available with your professors. There are interesting courses to take. Some of the courses here have been made up by the teachers so you won't find them on any other campus.

Overall Experience: It's a very good school with a lot of helpful staff. The students here either love it or hate it. There is no in between

Athletics: As a triathlete, I do not feel the university has invested adequately in the program.

Overall Experience: As a sophomore, the school has met all of my expectations to date.

Party Scene: There is usually at least one or two parties happening on campus on the weekends or off campus at a house. There is a popular bar/club scene in Clarendon which is just about 10 minutes from campus. They are easy to get to but they usually end up being mostly students so it's not the best place to meet new people. DC has a great nightlife when it comes to clubs, bars, and different nightlife hangout spots but if you don't have a DD it can sometimes be inconvenient to travel all the way into the city at nighttime. The parties around campus are always walking distance.

Party Scene: Parties are pretty lame at our school. It is usually the same crowd of people and they usually always get busted. The best parties take place on a day that people don't expect it because they're more spontaneous and don't get busted. There are always negative student interactions at parties and personally, I think that nightlife in the city is much more appealing.

Academics: The academics at Marymount are challenging but manageable. The professors are passionate, engaging, and resourceful. The curriculum is well suited for each major but could be varied even more. The registration process is very easy and manageable. The academic advisors are not the best at helping with this process though. It is very common to have an advisor that knows nothing about your major and so it is up to you to make sure you are taking the required courses since the advisor often doesn't know how to help with it. The workload is challenging but it is just enough to feel as though you are getting the most out of your time and money. There are a lot of options for study areas including private study rooms, common areas, dining cafes, and the library. The computer labs are excellent and the study rooms in Rowley have monitors, HDMI cords, and lockable doors.

Diversity: Marymount has been voted the most diverse school in the South. We have an extremely diverse student population coming from all different backgrounds, religions, ethnicities, and parts of the world. On campus, students are very accepting of these differences and regularly participate in international student activities such as International Club meetings, International Banquet, etc. There are always class discussions that encourage the topic of diversity and how we all differences in our cultures and beliefs. There is not as big of a variety of economic background, probably because our school is pretty expensive. However, it's not too hard to find other students that are different from this background because Marymount does offer a good amount of financial aid to students.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I personally don't know much about the drug scene at my school. I hear that some students do drugs but the only thing I have witnessed is marijuana. Alcohol use is common on campus since we are a wet campus and there is usually always parties happening on the weekends. Underage students are definitely more pressured to drink than upperclassmen. RAs do a good job at enforcing the policies about underage drinking and alcohol amounts in each room, but it is not impossible to get away with things.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. We have a 24/7 Campus Safety team that is always checking the grounds and ensuring proper doors are locked, secured, etc. We also have a 24/7 campus safety phone line to be used whenever we feel unsafe in any way. Even if you just don't want to walk to your dorm by yourself at night, you can call the 24 hour phone line and one of the security guards will escort you to where you need to go. Arlington County police has a very fast response time as well for any serious sort of emergency. We have had many emergency drills that have helped students feel prepared for what to expect during an emergency.

Overall Experience: I have had a pretty great experience overall with courses and professors. The majority of my professors have been so passionate about what it is they're teaching and they strive to make the material exciting and engaging for students. Many of my classes have been discussion-centered to foster more interaction between students and between students and the professor. I wish that there was a larger variety of classes offered, sometimes it seems as though they stick with the expected classes for each subject rather than branching into some more unique class offerings. The class sizes, however, are great. Small class sizes of about 15-25 students really create a more valuable education. I have gotten so much more out of my education by being in a smaller class setting, able to have one-on-one time with the professor. They get to know each student by name and learn their story - something that is impossible to do in a large university. I have had a few experiences with unprofessional teachers, but overall the experience has been positive.

Overall Experience: Marymount does a fantastic job of opening up so many doors for students in the search for a career. An internship is required for every student before graduation. The Center for Career Services and the faculty advisors research each internship students choose to make sure it will be a valued, quality experience for the student. They make sure that the internship is tailored to the students' specific career goals or interests. The CCS has an extensive amount of free resources such as resume and interview workshops, job/internship search help, and career advice. The employers recruiting on campus are varied by different majors, industries, and styles and there is at least one a week. The alumni network is extremely strong here too. There are countless ways to connect with alumni and network through their business opportunities. I have great confidence that I am going to secure a job after graduation because all of the work that the CCS as well as the faculty does to ensure that each student is using their education to its full potential.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
