That you will live and learn with respect in a community representing all backgrounds and faiths—as just a single example, one in every 10 Marymount students is Muslim. And it means that as much care and energy will be devoted to your spiritual (however you define it) development as your intellectual development.
At Marymount, we believe that skills are nothing without values, that knowledge must be fueled by compassion and that no one can ever afford to stop learning. All of us in the Marymount community believe that if you want your future to mean something, your education will never be over.
