These comments are very mixed. Let me give you all the pros and cons of this school


1.Dorms are huge and new!

2.Food is great, buffet style every night and it's always something new.

3.Professors are pretty lax when it comes to homework and assignments. Usually you will only have 1 or 2 professors a semester that will give you busy work, the rest know your in college and do stuff like that in class.



6.Freshmen can bring Cars

7.Even though its a Catholic college, most people don't associate with the religion. Most of my friends aren't even catholic and some aren't even christian.

8.Scranton area has over 5 colleges so its a big college city

9.The cancel classes after 3 or more in of snow.

10.Parties are always going down in the Scranton area and in off campus houses

11.People are really close and friendly.

12. 2 words. PARADE DAY!!!!!

13.Scranton is full of hiking trails and scenic views, if you're into that.

14.A lot of buildings on campus are really new so its really nice. Especially around the Art Field.

15.Its easy to get a new roommate if you hate yours. You only have to put up with them for a week or 2 before the university gives you a new room or roommate and generally the second roommate is so much cooler.

16.The school nurse hands out prescriptions for everything, shes pretty chill.

17.Hardware Bar, cool night club.

18.Off campus housing is fairly easy to find.


1.Winter is cold

2.Security thinks they are actual cops. How many security guards does it take to move a trapped car? In my experience exactly 7. They aren't the smartest.

3.The library is pretty old(note: they are knocking it down and building a new one this year)

4.Parking situation sucks. If your a Freshmen, you have to walk a mile to get to the Freshmen lot and if you park in a different lot they ticket you. And people break into Freshmen cars A LOT, because the lot is so far from the actual campus.

5.The ladies at the Cashier office are not the nicest.

6.Front Desk people think they're God. Hate them all.

7.Last year the power went out the week before finals and it took the school a few weeks to properly fix it

8.Dunmore cops will arrest you for underage drinking, Scranton cops will laugh at you and tell you to keep the party noise down.

9.They have a lot of student clubs but not many students actually join them

10.Commuter students suck. They think they're cool because they are from the area, believe me, its not something to be proud of.

responseThanks. This was much more helpful then the other comments. Its good to get people who are honest about the good and the bad
questionLooking for an Athletic Training program. I am hearing mixed comments about Marywood. Having trouble keeping instructors. How has been your experience with AT at Marywood? Would you reccomend them for AT?
