Marymount California University Reviews
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.
My time at MCU really feels like a sort of Instagram montage- just a reel of amazing people and memories- but I think the opportunity to study abroad was a standout for me. Spending a semester in England as a Sophomore and in South Africa as a Senior really changed my life. I was able to deepen friendships with other mariners, explore cultures different from my own, apply classroom concepts in an entirely new context AND discover parts of myself I might not have known had I stayed in the States.
After reviewing the university and deciding to apply, once the admission advisors realized my ambition and desire to complete my undergraduate education, they reached out to me several times during the admission process to get letters of recommendation, letters from myself explaining my personal background, and decided to admit me and even add in the university based grant to help pay for my tuition. I have never been accommodated in such a way it made me excited to walk onto a campus and know I will receive the help I need without being turned away and unable to pursue my education. Marymount California University believes is getting to know their students personally to identify and assist with any and every need possible to make sure we all succeed.
