A lot of time and money is dumped into the sports. The buildings are falling apart and the programs options are shrinking. There is some teacher bias during classes so you get a skewed experience in some of the courses. It seems like all of the good teachers leave after a semester or two and the ones that stick around are subpar or no long up to date in their field. Some key people have left the school and instead of replacing them someone else gets stuck with extwork that might be outside of their abilities. There are a lot of cliques. It’s worse than my high school was. A lot of the nursing students fail out of the program because of unhelpful teachers and shifting teaching methods.
I love the small class size! You can meet up with your professors during their office hours or make an appointment! It's a located in Upper Michigan and the best part of it is they embrace it. Finlandia is a private university, which is really nice. They have one building for dorms, two buildings for classes, a gym near by with a new weight room (it's really expensive and open all day!).
