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!

From the first time walking onto campus and entering the admissions building, I felt welcomed and not a distant outsider. The people in admissions, financial aid , and registrar spoke to me but mostly listened to all my concerns. Each got back to me in a timely fashion with answers to questions I had. They make you feel you belong whether you choose to be there or not.
I was a resident for two years and it was a below average experience. The food options are very limited and not great for the price of the meal plans. Walking to class was always difficult because there are no direct sidewalk routs between buildings, resulting in having to walk through grass and dirt when you're in a rush. Class sizes are small which are nice, and depending on the program the professors are helpful.
