What Students Are Saying

3.18 Average Rating
Work hard in high school because grades always count. College is going to be harder but also very much more rewarding in the long run. Don't ever think you can't get into any college because you can. If money is an issue, there are so many scholarships and grants out there and there are so many people who want to help you succeed. Don't ever give up on your dreams because they are achievable and here at Marymount, everyone is rooting for you.

If you want to come, live on campus!! It is the best time of my life, you'd love it here!
Grace from Oakton, VA
I suggest going to see the campus on Senior Day; that's when I made up my mind to apply. The school's constantly evolving to form a better Marymount University.
Anonymous from Washington, DC
Try your hardest at Marymount; you will be rewarded. Also, get to know your professors! They really do care so much and they just want to help!
Katie from Fairfax, VA
be prepared for a small school environment as this is the best feature of marymount
chace from mukwonago, wi
just work hard Marymount will understand if they noticed you put effort into the class.
Samuel from Alexandria, VA
Visit the campus and see what it has to offer for your personal growth as well as academic career. Make sure it is a good fit for you.

If your are an athlete, inquire about the posibilities of playing your sport.

Talk with current students about their experiences at Marymount.

Come into school with a business mindset, because either way you are going to have your fun. And if you come to school because you want to get away from home, think twice. A good percent of students who do go to college for the purpose, sets them on Academic probation, or even expelled. Then you will be very upset because you ended up back at home.
Second tip, do not try to befriend everyone, because no matter how cool they might seem, everyone is not for you. Many of your friends will turn there backs and start to change fast, either in a good way or a bad way. Choose wisely who you want to surround yourself around.
Third tip, Network, network, network ! Learn how to have a elevator conversation, which means, when you are around someone you don't know:
-greet them
- tell them who you are
- tell them why you are here
- What you want to get out of this experience
and maybe they will know someone to help you get there, or they might help you themselves.
Lastly, write out goals that you want to accomplish each semester, and yearly big goals that you want to accomplish, for example semester: get all A's Yearly: Complete a full (20 piece) line of garments. And if you do not succeed, do NOT shoot yourself down but gain motivation to complete them and then the new ones your going to have. but reflect back to why you did not complete the goals.
Tynisha from Lorton, VA
No sororities or fraternities, if you are expecting a party school, don't, that scene is mostly in DC in the clubs. Generally the campus is quiet and peaceful which is nice. MU offers various scholarships and grants that make going here a pretty reasonable price. I work and live off campus and pay for college myself, but MU offers on-campus employment as well.
Britnee from Annandale, VA
1. Get involved on-campus, whether in a big or small way. The campus is very small and close-knit, so getting involved in just one activity will open your eyes and your opportunities up to endless possibilities.
2. Take advantage of the LRC (Learning Resource Center), this is a great place for tutoring or taking tests at an earlier or later date than posted by your professor.
3. Never be scared to talk to your professors (either face to face or through an email), they are always willing to help and work with you if you are behind on an assignment or simply need help with the material.
