Faulkner “University” is nothing of the sort. It has the feel of a medium-sized high school. The academics are weak, with many core classes taught by adjunct faculty. There is very little research being done on campus, robbing students of participating in meaningful, current scholarship. An authoritarian student life code treats young adults like children. Unless you are from a Christian fundamentalist evangelical background, RUN AWAY FROM THIS PLACE AS FAST AS YOU CAN. If you are from this tradition, you can do FAR better at a school like Sanford, Birmingham-Southern, Lipscomb, Belmont or evening Harding. Remember: you can do better!

Faulkner is a great Christian environment. It's very diverse, and prepares students for occupational opportunities. However, for the cost of the school, the curriculum being taught could be more in depth and informational. One class I took was not very beneficial to me. We would zoom through a lot of information, and I only could retain it long enough to past the upcoming test.
Faulkner University is a Christian based school where Christianity is exemplified in the character of their professors and staff. I like that Faulkner is a Christian based school because it gives me the freedom to express myself spiritually without any restraints. Faulkner has a great support team who is willing to help the students resolve issues that may occur during their studies while at Faulkner. I believe that Faulkner looks out for the best interest of its students, helping them to succeed and meet their potential goals in life. Faulkner keep their students informed on all activities that are happening on campus and want all students to be included becoming a well community, while studying at Faulkner. The one thing that I don’t like about Faulkner would be that my commute to campus is an hour and a half drive from where I live other than that I think Faulkner is a great place to study.
