Where service and learning
At Marymount California, service isn’t simply encouraged—it’s part of the curriculum. Science students work with the Palos Verdes Nature Conservancy. Business students mentor local high school students through Junior Achievement. Sociology classes take on a 5K for the Asian Pacific Community Fund.
Local to global—that’s our perspective
Marymount California University spans two Southern California campuses. Overlooking the Pacific in Palos Verdes, our Oceanview Campus offers the traditional collegiate experience. In neighboring downtown San Pedro, our Waterfront Campus connects students to a growing hub of commerce and culture.
Our study abroad program offers a world of opportunity. Full-semester options include such places as Spain, China, Switzerland, Greece, and Thailand. After four years here, your world-view will span the entire spectrum—urban to rural, local to global.
As a member of the Cal-Pac Conference and NAIA, Marymount participates in men’s and women’s soccer, cross-country, track & field, golf, and baseball/softball. Men’s lacrosse is played as a club sport.
With 78 furnished townhomes surrounding a community quad and pavilion, students enjoy the outdoor fire pit, volleyball and basketball courts, and frequent student activities. The University provides frequent shuttle service to campus and to local shopping and recreation.
