Friends University Reviews
I love Friends University! The classes offer flexible schedules, which is essential for student athletes like myself! They are taught my caring staff who personally get to know each student. The campus is beautiful, and the facilities are great!
Friends University is a small and comfortable campus where students are highly encouraged to grow academically, socially, mentally, and spiritually. There are many resources for students to succeed long before they complete their degree, and your advisors especially ensure this. My experience has been very well-rounded, and I believe I have come to know the dynamics of the school fairly well. I have appreciated having an on campus job because it allowed me to interact with my peers and feel even more familiar with my environment. I would love to see more academic options for my degree (psychology), more renovated spaces throughout campus, and exceptionally better food in the cafeteria.
Friends is an amazing college. It’s very diverse, there are a lot of activities on campus to keep you busy! The athletic teams are really fun to go and watch. The housing is #1 in Kansas and one of the best in the nation! The food is really good. You get a buffet with different options to choose from! The professors are very nice and hands on with students! The other students are very nice and friendly. I would highly recommend spending 4 years at Friends to get your degree!
