Formed by a merger between Marymount College and Loyola University, Loyola Marymount University is a private school affiliated with the Jesuit religion and one of the largest Roman Catholic universities on the West Coast. Spread across 142 acres in suburban Los Angeles, California, LMU is home to seven schools offering 60 bachelor’s degree-granting programs. As a Catholic institution, LMU holds daily mass twice per day as well as three masses on Sundays. Throughout the year, LMU’s Mane Entertainment schedules a number of on-campus events including stand-up comedians, student talent competitions, and a weekly open mic.
LMU has a beautiful campus with lots of potential for student involvement in clubs, sororities or fraternities while maintaining high academic standards. It is a jesuit school, but there is no mandatory religious involvement.
