When schools across the nation transitioned to online learning for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester, things certainly changed at Marywood. Many of my classes only utilized Moodle, the platform we use throughout a normal semester. Only one of my classes utilized Zoom for online classes, and that was only for weekly check ups. Many professors simply uploaded work and discussion forums at the beginning of the week for us to get done throughout the week and have submitted by Sunday night. Being that the transition was unexpected, I understand the confusion with the online learning. I do, however, think that Marywood could have done a better job at remote learning and hope for improvements if we have to continue with it for the upcoming semester.

As for online classes when there isn’t a pandemic going on, Marywood does a nice job! I have taken many online summer classes during my time at Marywood and do not have any complaints! I really enjoy these online courses.

I like the warm feeling of being welcomed and accepted at Marywood. I transferred from a college where I always felt under pressure and judged. At Marywood, it was a breath of fresh air. I felt calmer and more confident stepping onto campus everyday. The professors are very welcoming and the small class size makes it easier to learn and fully understand. If you need help on anything, there’s probably a kind and helpful professor there to help you. The students are very nice and always make you feel welcome. Overall, I’m very happy with my transition to life at Marywood University. If you’re looking into an education degree, what I am perusing, I would definitely recommend Marywood!
I honestly love Marywood University! Personally, besides a select few professors, all the teachers have been incredibly impacting, helpful, and empathetic to their students. The student activities and campus connections are the best part of going here. Even as a commuter, you can get 100% involved.
Marywood also accepts most outside credits so that can be helpful to the student in between schools or transferring in other credits.
