Loyola Marymount University

School Description

Provided by Loyola Marymount University

Founded in 1911, LMU is a premier Catholic university rooted in the Jesuit and Marymount traditions. Our enrollment includes 5,509 undergraduate, 1,962 graduate and 1,374 law school students. Our 150-acre bluff-top campus is located in West Los Angeles and was recently named in the "10 Most Beautiful Campuses" by the Princeton Review.

The names "Loyola" and "Marymount" have long been associated with Catholic higher education in countries around the globe. Saint Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, sanctioned the foundation of his order's first school in 1548. The Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary have conducted educational institutions since their establishment in France in 1849 by Father Jean Gailhac. These two traditions of education have come together in Los Angeles as Loyola Marymount University.

Loyola Marymount's Mission and Goals Statement, approved by the Board of Trustees in 1990, succinctly states in its preamble the university's three-fold mission:

* The encouragement of learning
* The education of the whole person
* The service of faith and the promotion of justice

60% percent of LMU undergraduates live in one of the 20 residence halls and apartments on campus. There are over 130 active clubs and organizations and a Greek community with 15 local chapters. Our student organizations perform over 8,440 hours of community service and raised over $135,000 for local and national charities in 2006-2007.
