Marymount is a great small private University . The school is very diverse with many friendly individuals you can encounter with. However, the school lacks healthy and etiquette food. I do love the fact that the professors aren't so strict as I was expecting them to be. The professors are cool and you don't have to hesitate to ask questions in class or during their office hours where you can meet with them on your own time privately. We have free tutoring in any subject that you might need help in. I love the fact that we are only 15 minutes away from D.C. I love the fact that we have many clubs and sports that you can join such as: drama club, book club, movie club, fashion club, the International club, math club, science club, African American history club, etc. You can even form your own clubs. We have sports such as basketball, volleyball, soccer, etc. There is so many organization and fundraisers you can take part of.
Marymount has been voted the most diverse school in the South. We have an extremely diverse student population coming from all different backgrounds, religions, ethnicities, and parts of the world. On campus, students are very accepting of these differences and regularly participate in international student activities such as International Club meetings, International Banquet, etc. There are always class discussions that encourage the topic of diversity and how we all differences in our cultures and beliefs. There is not as big of a variety of economic background, probably because our school is pretty expensive. However, it's not too hard to find other students that are different from this background because Marymount does offer a good amount of financial aid to students.
I have had a pretty great experience overall with courses and professors. The majority of my professors have been so passionate about what it is they're teaching and they strive to make the material exciting and engaging for students. Many of my classes have been discussion-centered to foster more interaction between students and between students and the professor. I wish that there was a larger variety of classes offered, sometimes it seems as though they stick with the expected classes for each subject rather than branching into some more unique class offerings. The class sizes, however, are great. Small class sizes of about 15-25 students really create a more valuable education. I have gotten so much more out of my education by being in a smaller class setting, able to have one-on-one time with the professor. They get to know each student by name and learn their story - something that is impossible to do in a large university. I have had a few experiences with unprofessional teachers, but overall the experience has been positive.
