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!
Cumberland University offers a unique college experience due to the large faculty to student ratio. This allows the faculty to have the opportunity to get to know each and every individual in the class. However, it is very clear that some professors care about the well being of their students more than others.
