Loyola Marymount University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
Loyola University not only provided me a challenging and enjoyable education but it taught me perspective. Teaching through the Jesuit lens allowed me to approach a wide variety of topics from a rather unique standpoint that I continue to benefit from today.
LMU is an institution with small class sizes and opportunities to seek guidance and further assistance from professors. The main mission of the university is the education of the whole person. Social Justice is an essential component incorporated into the curriculum where you can take courses that involve community based learning opportunities. For example, I took a course called Ecology of Homelessness where we were able to be educated and informed about the factors contributing to homelessness but also had the opportunity to go out into the field to study and create projects in the Los Angeles community. There are endless opportunities within the classroom as well as on-campus organizations that promote social justice, encourage research and involvement in the wider Los Angeles community.
Loyola Marymount University is a beautiful campus with knowledgeable faculty members ready and willing to help you succeed in your studies. I enjoyed my time at LMU, not only because of the variety of groups and organizations available for a student, but for the opportunity to build academic relationships with your professors; you are not only a number at LMU, you are a person. When choosing a major, do try to keep in mind your future and the type of career you would like to pursue upon graduating. Finding a job after college is challenging enough, it is more challenging when your degree is not particularly specific to the open job market. Do your research, generate employment projections, see what needs and services will be in demand within the next 5-10 years and decide on your major thereafter. But always remember: choose a major that will not only yield a large earning potential, but that will yield happiness! If you love what you do, you'll never have to work a day in your life. If you despise what you do, every day will seem unbearable.
Far too expensive. Learned a lot about filmmaking, but pick your professors wisely because not all of them are as qualified and helpful as they should be.
Great academic options, nice social scene, beautiful campus and surroundings, plenty of spiritual opportunities.
Loved it. Great teachers, terrific facilities. Credit requirements are low - lots of electives available. Could be a good or bad thing, depending on what you're looking for. Need to be proactive. The film school provides a ton of awesome options - take advantage.
LMU is a wonderful and competitive institution. Besides the picturesque campus, the school has enabled me to push myself and determine what I would like to do as a career.
I will always be in love with Loyola. Loyola Marymount University, a small, private, Jesuit institution located in Los Angeles is the total package when looking for somewhere to get your bachelor's degree. I came to Loyola straight from high school and I can honestly say that it was the best decision that I have ever made. I am currently a senior communications studies major with an emphasis in public relations and marketing. Throughout my entire time at this university I was encouraged by faculty and staff to join clubs, network with fellow students, and to become a part of something that I was passionate about. That was what I first loved, they cared about my passions, they cared about "Jade" as the student. Second, being a communication studies major in Los Angeles is very competitive and Loyola set me up and gave me the resources to have the best chance of finding internships in my field of study. Coming up on my senior year I am proud to say that I have had 3 internships and am working on a 4th and that is all because of my university driving the fact that internships are necessary in my field of study to get a job in a career that is related to my major. Lastly, the education experience is comparable to none. Being a small university of only about 5,000 undergraduate students, the class sizes rarely reach more than 22 students per class. This really allows me to engage in class, have discussions, and most importantly to build a relationship with my professors. I am able to learn at my own pace and ask questions if needed, and you aren't afforded that simple luxury at larger universities. Loyola Marymount University is the total package: a beautiful campus that values passion within their students, a well rounded educational experience, and a promising future upon graduation. I mean, what's NOT to love?
