Loyola Marymount university is great college campus if you want to have a liberal education. The class consisted of about a 30:1 teach and student ratio which allowed for a more interpersonal connection and learning experience. My time at Loyola Marymount University was enhanced by programs including but not limited to the Black Student Union and the Alternative Breaks Program. I would not be on the career path that I am on today if it wasn't for. the. experiences I had here.
