Marylhurst University Reviews
MU is a private liberal arts university very suitable for adult students. It will carefully consider all previous credits and transfer all possible. Ideal for those with two years of community college looking for a 4-year degree with a flexible, respected institution that offers convenient class hours plus online and hybrid options. Not much on-campus housing but the location is quiet, pretty and full of character.
This school is geared toward adults returning to school. So the average student is in their 30's. That being said, everyone, students and teachers, expect you to act like an adult. Which the expect you to do so by following the rules, showing up on time and being respectful towards other students and faculty. Partying is not an issue because there are no dorms and really no local bars that you can get to without a drive. The only person affecting the students academic or social life is the student. If they choose not to study when leaving the campus then there is a lot steps the school takes to get that student back on track and motivated. If a students suffers from some other issue I am sure the school would do everything in their power to help the student.
This school is 20 minutes form downtown Portland. The scene is amazing. There is so much to do and see. There are a lot of outdoor things to do from hiking, snowboarding, fishing, boating, swimming, sight seeing, bar hopping, shopping and I could go on for a while. Students are well received by everyone. There is a local NBA team as well as a roller derby team and a soccer team. All sports are covered here. I feel pretty safe in and around Portland. I mean there are pockets of crappy neighborhoods but who doesn't have that.
