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.

Marywood has so far been an incredible experience for me! I am in the speech pathology program and I’m surrounded by a caring teacher and student body that encourages me to use my gifts and excel in school. The faith life is awesome-there are a bunch of clubs and retreats available, as well as on and off campus bible studies. But religion isn’t pushed on anyone either, and I think a bunch of political opinions are present and encouraged. The best thing about Marywood is the people-those who stay on campus on the weekends or participate in clubs have a lot of school spirit and often people get really involved! It’s in a really safe area, and campus safety is awesome! The male to female ratio and parking situation are my only problems with it, the ratio cant really be fixed, but the parking probably should...
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!
