Marymount College Residential Life - The Movie

No, it's not the Dorm Life web-series--but it's awesome anyway.
 The idea of living on-campus--far from home and everything you've ever known--can be both exciting and a little terrifying.

"What are the facilities going to be like?" 
"Will I have enough privacy?" 
"Is the food edible?" 
"What if my roommate collects belly-button lint?"

(All valid questions. Respectively: Super-cool; Not really, but that's part of the fun; Nummers!; Hide your fuzzy sweaters.)

We understand your worries. But we want to assure you, living on-campus is one of the best parts of college, and the residential life at Marymount is one of our proudest features. We're so proud of it, in fact, that our Residential Life staff was inspired to create the best housing video ever made.

I laughed. I cried. I aspirated some coffee.

Watch it after the jump.

Admission FAQs Part 2 - Financial Aid

College isn't free, as I'm sure you realize. It's a truism repeated ad nauseam in the admission world, but let me assure you: nothing is quite so acutely agonizing as signing that first tuition check. Personally, I think it's the closest I've ever come to knowing what that guy who cut off his own arm in Utah felt like.

But thankfully there are other options out there for those of us who aren't quite ready to put up a kidney on e-bay.  Read on after the jump to get the answers to some of our most frequently asked financial aid questions--and to find out how to get some of that cash for yourself!

Admission FAQs Part 1 - Requirements and Deadlines

The admission process can be daunting. Every school has different requirements, different terminology, different dates to remember. No fun at all. We know. As old and decrepit as we might seem, we remember what it was like to apply to college. Personally, my recollection is of a pervasive haze of stuttering panic interspersed with one or two personal statement-induced fugues. 

To make the whole process easier on you, read on after the jump to get all of your pressing admissions questions answered.
