LMU is nominally Jesuit, thoughtBright
LMU is nominally Jesuit, thought President Snyder is a progressive liberal who mouths Catholic language for good measure while imposing his progressive humanism agenda on students. He states his most important mission is defeating racism- as if student in a Jesuit school are racist- and if that is in fact true LMU should fire its entire admissions team. Be prepared for 4-years of progressive indoctrination. If you doubt me look at the religious course offerings such as LGBTQ religious courses, which are contrary to Catholic tradition.

Current Junior finance major, overall not too bad.BrightFinance
Current Junior finance major, overall not too bad. I have solid circle of friends, and meet nice people in classes. There are some arrogant assholes but I ignore them. Teachers are hit and miss. Mostly very good and very helpful, but some are really bad, like surprising bad for how much money it is. It is def. overpriced. Buildings are either super old or new, my freshman housing had water pipes as a heater for the building. The food is nasty, me and my roommate have both gotten sick multiple times. LA is overrated as a city, lots of traffic and is more unsafe than people think. Even outside campus lots of homeless and other sketchy people. I would say it has potential to be better than it is 100%, and should be better, especially for the price! If it was cheaper I wouldn't mind the same way I do. I hope this was helpful, everyone has a different experience tho.

My freshman year experience at Loyola Marymount universityBrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
My freshman year experience at Loyola Marymount university was amazing. Academics were excellent, with teachers that taught me so much and got me hooked on the topics. Office hours were usually available, and teachers were. kind and supportive. Curriculum was great, lots of interesting readings. The social life is great, people are very nice, friendly chill and supportive (for the most part).The party scene sucks (not that I care.) There are a bunch of cool clubs bars and beaches to go to, the location is great. The jesuit part isn't relevant unless you want it to be, its really easy to be gay and jewish here. Campus is beautiful, only other downsides are that things on campus close a lot, the RA's are too strict, and there's no football team, but basketball games are fun. Also administration isn't great, I wish financial aid was better. And the food is mediocre. Also they close the front gates at night.
