“Small classes allowed for more individual attention from professors and, even more importantly, more open discussion amongst the class. We all felt comfortable voicing our thoughts and ideas and testing out theories. Also, the added rigor in honors courses allows participants to delve deeper into the given area of study than in traditional courses.”

—Lauren Tyrrell, English
Class of 2009

Scholarship Spotlight

Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship

http://www.act.org/goldwater

The purpose of the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation, as stated in the enabling legislation, is to alleviate a critical current and future shortage of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. A more realistic statement of the purpose, in today's terms, is to provide a continuing source of highly qualified individuals to those fields of academic study and research.

Marywood University recognizes academic accomplishments by publishing deans' lists each semester, and awarding medals at commencement.  This site provides a searchable dean's list database, as well as a listing of medal and award recipients from our 2009 Commencement Ceremonies.
