In a survey to determine why students decide to enroll at Marywood, the attractive campus is one of the reasons most frequently listed by both female and male undergraduates. Another attraction, say the respondents, is the variety of academic programs, at present offering a choice of fifty possible majors in eighteen departments. Other drawing factors are the quality of the faculty 128 full-time, eleven pro-rata, and over one hundred part-time; the liberal arts emphasis; the library facilities; and the College s general reputation. Expenses, too, are a factor.
