Marywood University Reviews
Students at Marywood have the best of both worlds, the suburban town of Dunmore and the city of Scranton. The town of Dunmore offers everyday conveniences such as grocery stores and pharmacies while Scranton offers a nightlife, shopping, and entertainment. Both can be reached by the Smartbus provided at no cost for Marywood students. I really enjoy the location because I feel at home and safe in a residential neighborhood but can also access the many opportunities the city of Scranton provides. Marywood is safe, friendly, and has plenty to do!
Choosing to go to Marywood has been one of the best decisions of my life. There is a real sense of community at Marywood and plenty of clubs and extracurriculars to get involved in. Marywood also has a fantastic faculty. While most schools offer very dedicated professors within the classes of your intended major, Marywood goes one step further and provides faculty that truly care about you and your education in both the classes for your major and the core classes. I have never once felt like any of my teachers did not care about me or how I was doing in their class. Marywood also has a fabulous Music, Theater, and Dance Department with a staff that is of extremely high caliber, especially for a university of Marywood size. I would highly recommend Marywood to anyone and everyone.
So far my experience at Marywood University has been generally good so far. I have enjoyed all of my classes that I have had so far in my freshmen year . I love the smaller size of the university because I have a maximum of 30 kids in my largest classes, so I can feel that I am in a classroom and not in a large hall where the professor might not even know who I am. I also am happy that the size of the school is small because I do not have to walk a half an hour to a class, rather 10 minutes at max. The area that Marywood is in, I feel very safe to be. The scranton area has a lot to offer to anyone that likes the outdoors, or even just hanging out at the local restaurants. Overall I am enjoying my experience at Marywood so far. The only improvement that I could ask for is possibly updating some of the insides of the older buildings. Some of them feel outdated, but they are in good condition.
