.

I attended Marymount, enrolled in the Psychology (BA) program from 2001-2004, and graduated with that degree.

I lived on campus, and must give those considering this option a warning- this a school where you either commute, or stay on campus and go home every weekend. Certainly, there are the few that stay on the weekends, but they are mostly RA's and sports players, and your usual group of college partiers. If you choose to live off campus (or on, for that matter), be forewarned about the terrible parking situation. Fortunately, the MU Shuttle runs from Ballston Metro frequently, with mostly friendly , but not entirely punctual, drivers.

As for my professors and classes, I learned a lot and made some great contacts. However, many do not learn much, and struggle into class only occassionally. You can sneak by doing little work easily at MU, because frankly its not Harvard. But, if you are looking for a real education, the classes are small, and full-time faculty are attentive and always available. The biggest programs seem to be nursing and fashion design, as this is a traditionally female school.

The campus is small, cozy and has a mix of old and new facilities. I have heard they recently remodeled many of the dorms, which is a much needed improvement. Public service opportunities abound, although clubs suffer from a lack of enthusiam and effort. Administrative offices are not well-trained in basic customer service, as in any university. Overall, I had a good experience, but I can't say I wouldn't change my school choice.
