Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: At Marywood University I got one of the best life experiences. It's strong academic focus, excellent staff and faculty members, rich and diverse atmosphere are few of many good qualities I have experienced. The program really thoroughly helped me sharpen my research and analytical skills. Cons: Really, there are not many cons that come to my mind. I would like to have more resources to connect international students with practical trainings related to their fields.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

The academic program is very good and the teachers are very good. The clinical preparation is very good as well. On the downside, the financial aid, technology and student health offices are unhelpful and unresponsive. The technology for printing is outdated and the fees are high for everything on top of an expensive, private school tuition.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

The Physician Assistant program faculty are extremely helpful and truly want every student to succeed. I highly recommend this program. The faculty consists of a wide array of healthcare professionals which immerses students in a diverse pool of knowledge. The physician assistant building on Marywood University's campus was recently renovated. The classroom is very comfortable and a learner-friendly environment. The skills lab is huge and allows every student a space to practice clinical applications. Also, students take a few courses at the local medical college and that was a first-rate experience. The only negative aspect of Marywood is the lack of communication by the financial aid department.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2011

I wish there was more involvement with students on preparing them for careers after graduate school. I would've appreciated more attention or interest from professors in my major as well. I felt like my best mentors were very much outside my major (i.e.: I was a painting student, yet my best mentors were in the ceramics, illustration, and art history department). The environment is nurturing amongst the cohort itself, but the faculty involvement, at least in the painting program is rather minimal. I would have liked for painting professors to take a more active interest in the grad students, having more one on ones and conversations outside of just studio hours. My favorite thing about Marywood is that the art building was accessible to art students 24/7 via their id cards. The grad painting students also got individual studios accessible only by key, which each student held.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Marywood University is an outstanding school. Overall, the University is very supportive and works with you when you have a problem. For me the workload was overwhelming, but I realized that that was my own personal choice and the school is working with me. The campus is beautiful and safe. I am in the Masters Program and it is quite expensive, which I did receive enough financial aid to cover the costs, plus I also received two scholarships from the University. The education and experience is worth the money.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The MBA program at Marywood has an amazing faculty. The financial aid and cashier offices are unorganized and slow.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

There was no option for Physician Assistant or "other" so I chose M.D. for the specific program. The Marywood Physician Assistant program is dedicated to providing students with an exceptional education to prepare them for both the PANCE exam and the real world of medicine. They have a top notch staff consisting of some of the best physicians and physician assistants in the area, as well as a newly remodeled facility. Marywood has one of the only PA programs around who have the opportunity to spend an entire semester in a gross anatomy lab at The Commonwealth Medical College, where both anatomy and physiology are taught by the same faculty who teach the M.D. students. Unfortunately, Marywood University's financial aid and cashier's office are not top notch. The staff are quite unhelpful and rude at times and they are unorganized.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

The Physician Assistant program at Marywood University gives students an excellent foundation for succeeding in the health care world. The program is an intense two years, but it is so worth it. The information that is learned in those two years is so beneficial and priceless. The teachers do an excellent job preparing us for the real world!

I feel that having small class sizes and a community feel to the program is a pro, while the lack of technology is a con.
