I love the community and friendships forming at Corban University. The school is small and because the school is small you grow connections with everyone. You aren't just some person who could blend in the classroom or the cafeteria everyone stands out and everyone is important. The professors care about you and goes out of their way to help you. If you are looking for a small school I totally recommend Corban University! It is a fantastic school and I can't wait to go back for the fall semester.

My experience at Corban University has been great! Professors really do care, unlike the other three Universities I have attended.However, I wish there was not so many hills. On the other hand, its good exercise.
I love Corban University! It's a great school with wonderful people. I have enjoyed attending school and learning more about Salem's community. The classes are great and I am enjoying everything I am learning. The campus life is amazing and I would recommend students to live on campus.
