    I have had some great professors, interesting classes, met the best people here. Marywood is a great small school with professors who truly care about the students. This is definitely not the school to come to if you want to be known as a number and not by name.

    I love the activities and the people. Also, the food is actually pretty good for school food. The dorms are great. The worst dorm on campus is better then those at other schools.

    Marywood University is a small college directly in the middle of a quiet neighborhood. It was a hard transition for me considering I came from a big city. The City of Scranton can hardly be called a city at all and the only way to access the city is if you have a car or want to pay ridiculous amounts of money for a taxi, especially since Marywood recently got rid of their bus system. Marywood definitely has its ups and downs, but by the end of the year I found myself more used to the atmosphere and had realized I made some amazing friends who make the downfalls of Marywood a little less noticeable.

    There is always something fun to do and something to be involved in! There are sports teams and intramurals for those athletic people! The student activities crew always has fun events during the week such as coffee houses, tie dying shirts, comedians, etc. There are also over 60 clubs to join, and you have the power to form your own club here if it isn't offered. At Marywood, you can lead yourself to be who you want to be and have fun!
