Marywood University Reviews
Marywood University offers a copious amount of ways in which students can get involved. Some of these include intramural sports, student activities and varsity sports. Although I am not part of the varsity sports available for students, I do participate in some of the other activities available for students. Marywood's cheerleading team brings fans and students together to show the school spirit. Fan's support in response to the cheerleaders, as well as the players, is thrilling. Our gym and varsity fields are great quality and very refreshing. Overall, Marywood University has great opportunities for student athletics!
Marywood offers a lot to its students. It is a liberal arts school so every students needs to take other classes outside of their major. This is both a plus and minus depending on your situation. I am a commuter student and have a full time job. I wish Marywood would be more accommodating to older commuter students. For example, in the nursing program, it is fine if a student misses clinical for a school sport but other reasons for missing clinical, including childcare or weather, is inexcusable and that student would have to pay a fine. That doesn't seem fair. Marywood has many excellent professors but some are downright mean and intolerable.
All housing options are great. There is something for everyone. Every resident first-year must live in Loughran Hall, which is a very nice freshman dorm, and much better compared to many other schools. For students looking for a more modern dorm, they can live in Madonna Hall, and Regina Hall is available for students who want a more rustic/old fashioned housing option, or something cheaper. In addition, there are on campus apartment-style dorms available for those looking for more independent living. All dorms are close to at least one academic building. Housing process is a little complicated, but as fair as it can be.
