Corban University Reviews

Corban is an outstanding university. It is full of the best prophesors in this country and some are even top ranking in the world for their field of work. There are many different focuses at Corban as well as sports and extra curricular activities. This university also has some of the best students anywhere around. Corban has been talked about as the school you attend to find a wife or husband. Well, That statement isn't exactly correct, but it isn't exactly wrong either. Many of my close friends have ended up married and I am well on my way to asking the question! It's just not time yet. So, Corban is great! And the people are the best!

Corban University has a very prestigious title as a private Christian university. They offer a small atmosphere with small class sizes and personable professors who want their students to learn. Their athletic department is fairly large, and a majority of students compete in sports. Some negative things I would like to point out about Corban are as follows: the student body is too large for the amount of space provided. This hasn't changed classroom sizes, but those who live on campus are crammed into rooms that are meant for far fewer students, and parking is scarce. Additionally, I was under the impression that I would be able to completely prepare myself for graduate programs in the health field, but the program itself is lacking essential classes, such as medical terminology. With any private university comes a higher tuition, but it seems that Corbans tuition climbs substantially every year.
My experience at Corban was sort of an up-and-down experience. There were lots of moments I wouldn't trade for anything, but I also experienced some of my lowest lows here. That wasn't so much the college's fault; it started me on the very necessary journey of discovering who I was and what I would really thrive at doing. I did make some true lifelong friends here and learn a lot of really wonderful things along the way. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to point people here for their college education.
