Asbury University Reviews
Asbury University has been exceptional in all areas! Academics, relationships, schoolwork, and communication are all centered around growing in our knowledge and faith. The professors and even other school staff are never hesitant to reach out and check on the students. I highly recommend this University for everyone who is eager to grow and learn in a compassionate community.
One of the best things about Asbury is the small class sizes and committed professors. The professors are interested in investing in your life, and helping you achieve your best - beyond just the academics. Small classes mean one-on-on assistance and great discussions!
Asbury University is a joke. The tuition is $40,000 a year and there is nothing to show for it. If you ask me, a year of attending Asbury is worth a maximum price of $20,000. Asbury provides it's students with some of the lowest speed internet possible and they block a variety of websites, including UrbanDictionary, which makes no sense. They also have very few options for food, even in The Bistro, the supposed restaurant on campus. If I wanted a soggy piece of chicken, I'd go to church and stay afterwards to eat lunch there. Room and Board is $8,000 but again, there's nothing to show for it. There are only 6 washers for like 500 students. The furniture is old, worn, and outdated. The heating and cooling systems are horrible and often times are set to blow hot air when it's hot and cold air when it's cold. Lastly, the professors are alright, but some lack in their abilities to teach, but you can expect that from any University, so that's not an Asbury-specific problem.
