Four Decades of Alliance: A Good Start for Marymount College and San Pedro

For nearly 40 years, Marymount College has maintained a mutually beneficial relationship with the San Pedro community. This year, the College plans to invest quite a bit more in this vibrant Los Angeles neighborhood.  While the College’s main campus is in Rancho Palos Verdes, both student residences are located in San Pedro. In addition, many faculty and staff members of the College make their homes there.

“It is a natural fit for Marymount College to expand into the San Pedro community,” said Marymount College President Michael S. Brophy. “San Pedro offers our students an important ‘extended classroom,’ in which students are transformed through a combination of traditional academic learning and real-world experience. Working, volunteering and taking part in local activities helps students understand the world outside the classroom and create lives of leadership and service.”

Participation in San Pedro’s community and cultural events has created a buzz among students and members of the downtown community.  From mentoring students at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Los Angeles Harbor to donating blood at Providence Little Company of Mary Hospital’s blood drives and from preserving the native habitat at White Point to performing jazz at the Grand Annex, students and residents alike are realizing the benefits of this relationship.

Marymount Alumna Stars Crazy Stupid Love

Marymount alumna Analeigh Tipton ’08 stars in "Crazy, Stupid Love," a new film hitting theatres on July 29 in which the 22-year-old actor stars alongside Steve Carrell and Julianne Moore. Analeigh plays a 17-year-old babysitter to the unhappy couple’s 13-year-old boy and becomes an object of desire to him. The New York Times calls her “a character everyone will fall in love with.”

Analeigh looks back and credits Marymount College and Theatre Professor John Lane with “giving me the confidence necessary to succeed.”  During her sophomore year, she placed third in "America’s Next Top Model" and she has also been a competitive figure skater, a fashion model, and a guest star on the television series "The Big Bang Theory."  It's no wonder why the New York Times proclaimed Analeigh a “face to watch.”  To read the full New York Times article click here.

Come this fall, Analeigh will also star alongside Adam Brody in the dark comedy Damsels in Distress.
