Loyola Marymount University is recognized for its “dynamic mix of solid academics, Jesuit tradition and thriving social life” in the newly released Fiske Guide to Colleges 2017, a comprehensive listing of the “best and most interesting schools” for prospective students.

Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the guide released today offers a detailed look at more than 300 schools in the United States, as well as the United Kingdom and Canada. It includes student observations and evaluates colleges and universities based on range of subjects, including student demographics, academics, social life, financial aid and more.

“At Loyola Marymount University, students are treated to ideal weather year-round, a vast array of internship opportunities, and a stellar academic lineup that includes solid programs in television and film, liberal arts and sciences, and business,” the guide says. “What’s more, LMU has the distinction of being the only Roman Catholic university in Los Angeles.”

In addition to its popular marketing, communication studies, psychology, finance, political science and film and television production programs, LMU offers “a plethora of internships to experience-hungry students,” a “standout” debate team, participation in national science and engineering competitions, and many study abroad opportunities, the guide notes.
