Marymount University Reviews

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!

Marymount University only made me realize I had to leave it. The students here still act as if they were in highschool, which makes sense since the campus is smaller than a high school. MU is always dead. People are extremely clicky and not open at all. The financial aid office is the ABSOLUTE WORSE! They will never help you whatsoever. And not only am I speaking for myself but for many of the students here. The food is revolting. Only 2 places to eat on campus; the dining hall and Bernies, which will make you sh*t every time you eat there. The only good thing I have to say is that since it is such a small school, it is easier to have a relationship with your professors. I was lucky to have 5 great professors in my time at MU but other than that, it really feels like you are in highschool. It won't prepare you for the real world. Save yourself and your parents the time and money. Community College is better than MU
My experience at Marymount University has been great so far. People at Marymount come from all around the world which creates an opportunity for everyone to learn more about someone else’s culture as well as respect others with different backgrounds. Everyone is helpful and extremely friends. Marymount gives everyone a sense of a second family. Classes are small which enables establishing a good relationship with profesors as well. I would not change anything if I had the opportunity because once you get to know everyone there, you feel like you have found your second home.
