"I have my sights set on playing golf for a living, working my way up to the PGA tour, and, as a plan B, I would like to own a pro shop. That’s why I’m pursuing a major in retail business management. I want to use both my athletic and academic interests in my future career."
Nick Johnson is a retail business management major and captain of Marywood's golf team. He grew up in nearby Moosic and chose a college that was close to home.

My daughter goes here. She enjoys it as it is not a large university. The student population is friendly (not stuck up) very ethnic diverse and not considered a party university. If you are looking for a party college this is not the university for you. It is very pricey but no different than other private universities. One complaint my daughter has is the food. Not appetizing and selection is boring. Occasionally a good meal. However I haven't heard one college student not complain about college food. Food plan is only a requirement the first year of dorming.

I went there in the summer for a program and my gosh are the people racist! They had complaints made about us for the most stupidest reasons. There were caucasians doing the same thing but when us African American do it then get in trouble. As the people were serving us food the slick comments they made about us were so disrespectful! They were saying things like "I can't wait till they leave." If you are going to say rude comments don't say it loud enough for people to hear! I would never in a million years send in an application to this school. Don't waste your time either sending one!

So far . . . it is a perfect fit for my child . . . academically speaking. Objections ? A ridiculously overpriced "meal plan" which priced out the same no matter how many meals you were coerced into selecting. HOW can a meal plan be that expensive and SO substandard ? WHY do they not follow a meal plan like at New Jersey Institute of Technology where there is NO use of PEANUTS/TREE-NUTS in the food ?? The Marywood cafeteria is NOT peanut/tree-nut allergy safe at all - and they just don't seem to understand it. I think the NJIT food services standard should be a mandatory national model. While I appreciate ALL food sensitivities and allergies . . . you cannot have such an expensive meal plan and NOT abide by any allergy protocols. The food should be safe for ALL to eat without having to stage an inquisition while on-line waiting for their food. Also ?? Hamburgers should NOT be like hockey pucks and bread should be fresh, not stale. Also - faculty/staff should NOT be hired as a "favor" to the family. Case in point a begrudged science "teacher" who was apparently killing time as a teacher while he was earning money for grad school. NOT only was that twisted, there was some nepotism connection to campus which shouldn't be happening either. Nevermind the underhanded allegations of harassment let alone tampering with students' grades. Its a VERY expensive proposition to be a student at Marywood. There shouldn't be ANY problems with staffing NOR food . . . nor anything else for that matter. Thank you for your time.

This school has ruined my life. They went back on their word about a scholarship they were going to provide me for around 10,000$ a semester. Signed papers over the summer agreeing to play lacrosse for them contingent on this scholarship which they agreed to. Spring semester rolls around and they say they can't enroll me for classes until I pay them 12,000$ cash because the scholarship they had given me no longer existed as of 6 months prior?! My parents were all the way in GA and ended up having to take money out of their 401k for me to finish spring semester. In the mean time finance was supposed to "work something out with us" and they never did. They told me I owed another 12,000$ cash before I could sign up for fall semester the following year so I left. We refuse to pay them this money because they LIED about this scholarship they were going to give me. We even handed the paper to them to show them in writing and they said it no longer exists and they wouldn't honor it even after we signed it. Now I'm trying to go back to college and I can't because they need my transcripts from this school and I can't get them because my account is on hold because of this 12,000$. You're never getting our money. These people are a bunch of lying, selfish jerks and you've ruined my life. I will never be able to finish my degree because of the debt I shouldn't even owe you that you promised us in the first place through this scholarship that you fabricated to get me to agree to go to your school. That's deceitful... And you pride yourselves on being a Godly institution.

Marywood University was a wonderful experience for me. I studied there for my undergraduate and graduate degrees, and today, I am proud to be a member of the adjunct faculty. Marywood offers a beautiful campus that's very quiet and has a small school feel, which I loved. Some facilities could use some updating and like every college, there are areas for improvement (e.g. academic advisement, availability of resources, etc.), but the helpfulness of the staff and faculty makes up for it. But what I loved most about Marywood was the commitment to service held by everyone in the community - if you want a place to learn and explore service, this is a great place for you.

My girlfriend is going for her masters. She has useless online courses that aren't graded correctly (I've checked), teachers who are rude and run unprofessional classes and people in her class that shouldn't be there. She's now in her third year and studies every day, but she said she attributes nothing she's learned to the school and all from the job she has (which is actually in her field). We moved up to Scranton for her to go here and it's been a disaster living here. From bad landlords and horrible drivers to getting robbed (in the nice part of town) and a completely dead nightlife downtown I wouldn't wish this school on the worst of em.
