Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I loved the small class sizes and the strong relationships I had with faculty and alumni. My network during and after my studies grew significantly and I was able to utilize these connections for further education and career opportunities. LMU's campus is also gorgeous and the location is at the epicenter of new technology companies, surrounded by affluent neighborhoods...
