I enjoy how safe / welcomed I feel as a transgender individual. They make dorm assignments easy for lgbtq+ with "All Gender Housing" and priority access to buildings with gender-neutral facilities.
The demographic is largely Caucasian and there seems to be a smaller lgbtq+ demographic. The socio-economic demographic is also on the wealthier side.
I liked the small and slower-paced feel. It allowed me to have a more personalized experience and I always ran into someone I knew when I was walking on campus.
I didn't like how small the Black Greek Life scene was. I think that law can become a bigger party school and bigger in sports.
I really love the small class sizes and the accessibility of teachers. The majority of my teachers actually knew my name which I think is something that is unique about LMU. Additionally, the campus is beautiful and easy to get around. I feel safe in the LMU environment.
If you do not have a car, it can be quite isolating. LMU is not within walking distance of restaurants as other schools such as UCLA or Chapman might be. Additionally, it can be quite cliquey and has similar vibes to high school because of the small size, but the trade-off is some sense of community.
I like that Loyola Marymount University is a medium-sized school that has a small school academic feel to it. In the classroom, you have professors that care about your success, especially if you make an effort to create a relationship with them (visiting their office hours, asking them for advice outside of class, etc). I had a very hard time starting out because I was dealing with a myriad of health and personal issues while being a full-time student. However, my professors helped me out every step of the way, and I ended up achieving a 3.6 GPA and getting on the Dean's List in my college for my academic success. I would highly recommend LMU for their academics, just make sure to check out your professors on RatemyProfessor.com first!! It helped me choose teachers that were a good fit for me :).
As a transfer student who lived off-campus, I had a really hard time connecting with people. This made my social life feel very limited, and I felt pretty isolated. I would recommend joining clubs, but I would also caution that this may be a hardship you face if you are a transfer student looking to attend this university.
My experience at Loyola Marymount University has been quite enjoyable. The only downfall I experienced was COVID-19. I transferred to the school during the peak of the Pandemic. I didn’t get to fully experience community and Campus life until a year and a half later. I’m now in my last year and I am still getting acclimated to the university, but I’m enjoying every bit of it. I’m sure if you all come to LMU you won’t have the Pandemic interfering with your college experience. We have a breathtaking campus, great staff/ Professors, and nice students. You won’t regret picking LMU. GO Lions!
I love the campus. It’s smaller in size compared to other universities but it’s still a big campus. There are plenty of places to hang out and lounge. I also like the location of the university. We are located by many attraction points like the beach, local restaurants, LAX airport, Shopping malls, and more!
Small class sizes, kind community, beautiful campus, resources.
Limited food options, not ADA accessible, expensive, not competitive, area around is boring, frats not fun, commuter school, weird people (someone spat on a school building floor while I was walking today).
