The Psychology program at Marymount is excellent. If you are looking for a school where you can engage directly with your professor or classmates, this is the place to be. The Psych program in particular here has wonderful professors and advisers that love teaching as well as helping you achieve your goal while in school. The workload, internships, etc are convenient and not overbearing. As long as you pull your weight, professors will pull theirs into making sure your learning experience is worthwhile and understanding. Lots of opportunity & options! You'll never go board!

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.

Rowley is not a bad place to live in as a female freshmen or transfer. It is fairly clean & comfortable for your first year idea of living. The cost of living on campus should be either lowered or dorms should be renovated. Definitely livable and easy to get used to but the residence halls should be a little bit better for what you pay for. Ostapenko is the place to go...a fully furnished apartment, equipped with a kitchen, living room area, and two full bathrooms. You can't go wrong with that! All apartments are not the same size, some rooms are bigger, some rooms, are smaller, but definitely worth the money for the convenience and space. The housing process is fairly easy if you are prepared. The social atmosphere, could be better but it is what you make it with your surrounding peers.
