    Although it has all been online due to Covid, LMU has been very fair and respectful towards their students. All of my professors care a lot about your well-being and want you to succeed. I'm also a part of the athletic department and have enjoyed my experience there. Overall, a positive experience!
    It is a beautiful school! Walking around campus and throughout the buildings makes you feel like you're at a top notch institution. Their recent rebranding was a total waste of money though..the old lion and letters were just fine, it really feels as though a graphic designer was hired that had experience doing graphics for elementary schools and such.
    A lot of the graduate professors in the School of Education seem a bit novice, but eager to educate nonetheless.
