Marymount University was founded by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary and maintains its Roman Catholic Affiliations. There are three campuses for the school in Arlington, VA, and one in Reston, VA. The private university is listed as #52 in Regional Universities South by U.S. News & World Report. The university allows students to take courses at 13 other universities and borrow books from their libraries through its membership with the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area.
I absolutely love my Marymount experience. I've been able to go abroad twice (once to study PTSD in Chimpanzees in Kenya and once to the University of Oxford in England), study my major of Psychology, become a student researcher, lead groups like Student Government and MU Ambassadors, and I am currently interning with Alexandria as a Learn and Play representative! We have so many opportunities that it truly is hard to get bored!

A small private school in the midst of big changes in the upcoming years. Good community within the school that reaches out and makes use of the surrounding community as well. Teachers and advisers on the whole are very supportive and will do what they can to help you.
