Cumberland University is like home to me. Coming from a small town it is not much of a change! Professors get to know you more on a personal level and you truly never feel alone. You are in an encouraging environment and they set you up for success with free access to tutoring. I would recommend this school ten out of ten times to anyone wanting a small university!
Review Your College
I really enjoyed the personal relationship the students were able to have with the professors at Cumberland. But since there was such a small faculty on campus, many classes were taught by the same teacher which caused problems in scheduling. If a student was unable to learn from a certain teacher, there were no other professors to choose from.
I immediately felt at home there. Making friends and becoming close to the professors and staff was very easy. The student body is very supportive and encouraging when it comes to academics. I always know that I can go to another student or professor, etc whenever I have an issue or question about anything. I am greatly enjoying my experience.
