Major: History/Histories (art history/etc.) (This Major's Salary over time)
I have to admit, I wasn't entirely sure about LMU, and I was toying with the idea of transferring, but overall, my experience here has been good. The campus is absolutely gorgeous and you couldn't ask for a better location-just outside the city of L.A. but close enough for easy access. This makes not only for fun weekends, but great internship opportunities. I am an English and History major, and even though the English department may be considered to be superior, the history department, and especially the faculty, are fantastic. They absolutely love what they do and it shows in their classes, and this is true of many faculty in most of the departments. They will always help you and are extremely approachable and friendly. It's been up and down with the English department. Sometimes you strike gold, and other times you get a really terrible professor, but it's what you make of it. Warning: This is not a school for someone looking to party a lot. If you want to go get drunk every weekend, you're going to need to go out to USC or UCLA with some friends. The campus is pretty dead on the weekends as a lot of people are either from L.A. or Orange County and go home a lot. Also, a lot of the people here are super rich kids from Orange County who walk around with their Gucci sunglasses and bags and fake orange tans, so it takes some time to find normal people who aren't so into themselves, but it's possible. There's a really strong sense of service here as well because it's a Jesuit campus. When I was freshman, I didn't really care about that part of it, but it's really hard not to find a cause you care about and want to get involved with. Don't wait for people to make friends with you-you're going to need to get involved in clubs, Greek life, service orgs, jobs etc to meet people. The housing has been really great, far superior to anything I've seen at a state school and even a lot of private schools. There are some negative aspects, but if you don't mind taking the initiative, then this can be a really great school.
