It's a beautiful school, the view is amazing here and the class sizes are very small. Some people have pride for the school, and some don't. The two campus location can be a little annoying at times because you have to drive at least 15 min to get there, but honestly, coming from a big school, this is much better then walking 20 min to get to class from one end to the other. There are great professors that really care and explain every detail if you put effort on asking question. Although, some don't and wonder why they didn't pass the class. It does have a high school vibe because the school history and regulations that do not allow further renovation and expansion in the area. If you like to party, this isn't the place for you. If you genuinely care about your education, I would recommend Marymount California University. Finally, the athletic program is awesome, most of the programs are very competitive and an overall great experience.

Marymount California University has an outstanding campus. The ocean view scene is beyond beautiful. Marymount has a lot to offer each student there. It seems that the can provide a lot of helpful needs into each student's life. Also the housing is great!
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.
