What Students Are Saying

3.60 Average Rating
Marywood University is a liberal arts school, focused on an all around education for all students. The class sizes are relatively small, making it easy to connect with your professors on a personal basis in class. Many student activities are provided for on campus students, provided by the Student Activities Committee.
Keandra from Pine Grove, PA
They are a very good University where they challenge you in ways you never thought possible. The curriculum is set to help you not hold you back. They do what they can to make sure you are being the best person you can be.
Christi from Shamokin, PA
Marywood is a Catholic IHM-run University, so it's not cheap, but it's well worth the money. The campus is beautiful and semi-secluded, the teaching staff is courteous and knowledgeable, and there is something for everybody there. And even though the long-standing University is Catholic-based and they have a church on campus, they DO NOT force religion on their students.
Karrie from MOOSIC, PA
Marywood University is a small, catholic university that provides for everyone and tries to accommodate to each and every student. The community is close-knit and everybody is so nice. All professors want the best for their students and provide all the assistance they can.
