When it comes to Graceland University there is a lot of things that I personally would like to see be changed. Things like the food served in the commons, certain professors, and some academic changes need upgraded. However, even though it has all of these things that most students complain about, Graceland is a diverse school! People come from all over the world just to go to Graceland and get their degrees! It is beautiful! I love it and would not want to go anywhere else for school!

Graceland University is for those people who want a tight knit college community and where everyone knows everyone. teachers actually know your name and are willing to help you with your problems. They have a diverse range of students and staff and they make you all feel at home. I do not know of any safety issues that I or any body else have experienced while attending Graceland University. The Lamoni community is also supportive of the college and its students. Though it is a small town and does not offer as many accommodations that other college towns may offer, they do their best. I recommend Graceland University to any one that is looking for a small campus where you can make friends, be close with your teachers, and succeed in your academic adventures.
I personally fell in love with Graceland when I stepped onto the campus for the first time. Graceland has such a family oriented feel to it, just a safe, positive,and warm atmosphere. I couldn't ask for a better student life; with Graceland being on the smaller end you really feel the sense of community, it is one huge family! Graceland's profferers are one of a kind, they truly want to see you succeed, and they really get to know you, thanks to the awesome student teacher ratio. Overall, Graceland has been outstanding to me, and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else!
