Marymount University was exceptionally different from the other Universities that I applied to. They were the only school to take additional one on one help with me and any concerns I may have had. I love the fact that they are a smaller school which will give me the attention that I need in the classroom to succeed. The campus is beautiful, right on the water and everything is extremely clean. The staff is all very kind and wants to do their best to help us as students achieve our ultimate goals. Although they aren't as known as some of the schools I have applied to, I believe in quality over quantity and this school certainly equals that. I look forward at potentially becoming a student at Marymount California University.

MARYMOUNT IS A GOOD SCHOOL WITH AN AMAZING VIEW. HOWEVER, THE 2 DIFFERENT CAMPUS LOCATIONS (WATERFRONT-DOWNTOWN SAN PEDRO) AND (OCEANSIDE-RANCHO PALOS VERDES) AKE THE EXPERIENCE A BIT FRUSTRATING. THE DORMS THEMSELVES ARE LOCATED ABOUT 15-20 MINUTES EACH, RESPECTIVELY. THE DORMS ARE SITUATED IN A SECURE ENVIRONMENT WHICH IS GOOD.
Marymount has a pretty nice view because of its location. It is a college, but has a high school vibe to it. The classes are small which is great because you get to participate more and are more involved with your work and teachers. Its a catholic school so there isn't much partying at all. If you commute to school, you really do not have that much of a social life because everyone who lives at the dorms know each other already and you're just an outsider. People usually transfer out because you do not get the typically college experience. Some people have pride for the school, others don't.
