Briar Cliff University Reviews
Briar Cliff University has truly been my home away from home. The small classes really allow me to have a connection with my professors. The social work faculty is amazing! They will always take the time to get to know you and will take into consideration what is going on your day-to-day life. The professors have a great understanding over the material they teach and are well equipped to explain the material. There is a great diversity on campus and the majority of students are kind and friendly. I have switched from attending classes on campus to online and I am still receiving a great education.
Briar Cliff University has the best athletics department where everybody puts his own effort to reach success. The athletes work hard every day, they have planned training times, have gym training using the school facilities and take their meals together. The performance of the teams is excellent. The department of athletics releases at every start of the year the sports schedule, our teams are M/W soccer, M/W volleyball, M/W golf, football, M cross country, M/W basketball, softball. We have also a fan club, where any fan can sign up to support our Chargers. The Briar Cliff University promotes greatly athletic activities.
The teachers invest a lot in their students. They want their students to succeed in whatever field they choose. They are always willing to sit and discuss schoolwork and help you figure out your future. The rest of campus isn't so great. Well, the campus is nice, everything is located on one hill so there is no commute, but the dorms could be better kept, the food is nothing to write home about, and students are severely overcharged for what they get. Once again, the teachers and campus are amazing. If only the rest of the school followed that lead.
