Gardner-Webb University Reviews
So far I’ve been nothing but pleased with Gardner-Webb. The campus is beautiful and very accessible. I didn’t want to attend a university with a larger campus, so it’s a good size for me. I also really like the staff. They’re always friendly and eager to help me when I have questions. Another major reason I chose Gardner-Webb was because of their Christian background. I was raised in a christian household, so it was very important to me that my beliefs continued. It’s also very relieving to know I’m around others who share my beliefs. I would highly recommend Gardner-Webb to someone who also share these beliefs and prefers a more compact campus!
I have enjoyed my time at Gardner-Webb, but I wish I had decided to live off campus earlier than my senior year because a lot of money is taken off tuition. And living off campus was not really given as an option and was not easy to do. Most of the professors are awesome people who I’ve grown close with. The campus is beautiful and a great size. The Boiling Springs community is quaint and quiet, but bigger cities are just a short drive away. So, it’s not difficult to drive to a mall or an area with more food options. Safety is really emphasized on campus. Overall, I have enjoyed my experience at Gardner-Webb!
I love Gardner-Webb! The professors make you feel welcome and loved. Here, you are a face, not a number. The campus is gorgeous and the Christian services are enlighting. Student activities are plentiful. Gardner-Webb feels like a home away from home.
