School Notes:

Marymount College is a distinctive institution: it is the only independent college in Southern California solely devoted to the liberal arts and granting an Associate in Arts and an Associate in Science degree. The College was founded in 1932, and continues to build upon its value-centered foundation within the Catholic tradition of American higher education. Founded in 1932 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, Marymount College is a Catholic college that welcomes students of all faiths. It is the only private, coeducational two-year liberal arts college in California. In 1960, the College moved to a site on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The new campus included dormitories for on-campus residential living, an auditorium, dining facility, a library and a chapel. The year 1967 found the College preparing for a merger with Loyola University of Los Angeles in Westchester. Marymount separated its two-year program, which remained on the Palos Verdes campus, from the four-year and in 1968 the four-year college moved to the Loyola campus. The Marymount two-year program remained incorporated as a separate institution and received accreditation as such in 1971. In 1973, the merger was finalized and became a new entity: Loyola Marymount University (LMU). The college is accreditated by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
