College of the Week: Loyola Marymount University

With a view of the Pacific Ocean, emphasis in film and television production, strong coursework in entrepreneurship and marketing, a diverse student-body, Division I sports, Greek life, and a strong Jesuit academic tradition, LMU is worthy of consideration.
