There are pros and cons to attending thisQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
There are pros and cons to attending this college. One con, which is discussed with exasperation among Marymounters, is that many of the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center students are under the belief that Marymounters attend "Fordham's women’s college" because they were not "good enough" to get into one of the other campuses. Another problem lies in some of the faculty's apparent expectations for the students. I know of junior-level English students who were asked by their profs if they know what a "genre" is. I've heard of freshman History students being asked if they know what "capitalism" is. Most of the teachers, however condescending some of their initial approaches may be, teach well and are engaging. (I have no idea why anyone would teach to the women who attend this college at such a low level, and I must add that these instances are notable because they are atypical.) Yet, the women I have met have been, for the most part, intelligent and witty. That brings me to the pros of Marymount. The students here are some of the friendliest I have ever seen. Most of these students live in the dorms, which are rather nice--for dorms, because it is difficult, expensive and time-consuming to get to the campus by anything by car. And this makes for a genuine sense of warmth and family among the students. The campus is also wonderfully diverse--economically, culturally, etc.--especially considering it is a private liberal arts college. The cost of education and the generosity of Marymount's financial aid department make it a very affordable option--especially considering the school's quality and reputation.

Well I can certainly say that college definitelyArt & Design Department
Well I can certainly say that college definitely helped me all the way. I did concentrate also while attending Marymount College to improve my Spanish speaking skills and that has also been an atribute to obtaining better paying jobs for my bilingual skills.

Marymount prepared me as a female individual to be strong when going out into the work force.
I believe that I should have taken the opportunity to go Study Abroad and broaden my knowledge of the world.I recommend that high school students do a lot of research of the colleges that they would like to attend and find one that offers high quality education along with character building. Since one can have the intelligence for books but not the character to deal with the challenges of the world.

Marymount College is a quiet women's college justQuite BrightSociology
Marymount College is a quiet women's college just outside of New York City. I feel that Marymount is an ideal school for young women who are still trying to figure out who they are and are still coming of age. The community feel of Marymount was excellent. However, the academics at the school were not as challenging as they could be. But the school has a great study abroad and internship program. And I felt that the world around Marymount coupled with the academic programs provided for a wellrounded education. College is about so much more than sitting in a classroom learning. The chance to got to NYC daily or do an internship there was an experience in and of itself.But for those that want a party school-- Marymount is not the place.
