I graduated Marymount University in 1989. The school is smaller than the average amount, which helps you build a strong relationship with the teachers, which is highly beneficial for getting help when needed. The negative side to this is how the school seemed to have a high percentage of commuters, so on weekends the school felt empty. Their sports were never strong, which would have been a great experience as a college student. Also, the school is not as highly ranked among other schools in the nation, which is something important. Something I really liked was the strong fashion program that Marymount had, which gave me a great education in fashion merchandising. This was very helpful for my future and helped me obtain multiple high level positions in the fashion industry. The school was very close to Washington D.C, which made going out enjoyable! I still have my best friends from Marymount, who have always been there for me, and who I will stay close with forever!
I liked Marymount and its close proximity to DC. I enjoyed the people and fun area. As far as the school, they need more scholarships that pertain to a wider range of students.They have a great mix of culture on campus but not enough scholarships to pertain to each. Also, i would have better events on campus. Follow suits to other schools. The events feel like high school! We need sororities. More relaxed dorm rules. Everything is uptight. We need a football team and to maybe buy a field out for it. I know Marymount could be so much more. But especially, better cafe food is needed!
