Loyola Marymount University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
I will be eternally grateful for the education and mentorship I received at Loyola Marymount University. LMU is a Jesuit university, but that does not mean they force Catholicism on their students. Instead, it means that they embrace an educational philosophy centered on the development of the whole person and actions motivated by well-intentioned goals. Throughout my career, Ive noticed that this characteristic sets me apart from my peers. It helps me make sound decisions without hesitation, even if those decisions arent the easiest. On the academic front, I feel like my LMU education set me up for success. I am pursuing a graduate degree at a top-tier university and thriving in a fast-paced career field. LMU is a school like no other. The LMU family bonds are unbreakable and pursuing a degree there is the experience of a lifetime.
This college is not worth the money, no matter how much you are spending on it. Firstly, the major you apply with is the major you will stay in they make it seem like you will be able to switch but that is not the case.The staff is bordering on useless and unless you get lucky your advisor will not be able to help you. Sorority life is a joke and so is the party scene. The only way to enjoy this school is if you are rich and white. There is alot of racial tension on this campus because the white people here feel entitled and they feel superior to every other race. The housing situation is the biggest joke of all, because alot of people are living 4/5 people to a 2 person room. There has been no action taken to fix this. t is clear by the in classroom conversations that this school selected whoever they could get. They lure you in with the illusion of a friendly and inviting campus but most of the people here are petty and rude. DO NOT SPEND MONEY TO COME TO THIS SCHOOL you will never see your money being spent on anything but gardening. Speaking of which this campus is dry, if you look out the window on a good day you might see six people sitting outside. I f you are coming here because the campus looks beautiful just know that this campus gets really tedious to look at after a while and there is nothing noteworthy about it. This school will caused you to become severely depressed from the lack of activity that is going on here. SPS is constantly flooded with people and the school tries to normalize it under the guise of advocating for mental illness, but the refuse to aknowledge the role they play in these student's issues.This is a terrible school do not come here
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?
