Graceland University Reviews
Graceland is an excellent school where students have incredible opportunities to be involved outside of the classroom. Those opportunities are what helped me get my job today! The culture is so community focused and everyone there wants to help students succeed and exceed their potential. The academics are excellent as well. Many of the faculty are extraordinary in their accomplishments and dedication to students. The experience Graceland offers is unlike anything else, from excellent academic programs, athletic opportunities, honors program, Enactus, student government, and beyond. As long as you are willing to go out and get involved you will have a rich and engaging student experience!
Graceland University has a main campus in Lamoni, IA and then a sister campus in Independence, MO. I am in the BSN-RN program which takes place in the Independence campus. The faculty in both locations are absolutely wonderful to work with. They care about your success and making sure that you always have what you need to be successful! I would not choose a different place to receive my BSN-RN anywhere else! The ratings that I gave are in reference to the sister campus in Independence, Mo
There are more activities available than anyone could possibly have time to participate in. If you get involved, you will love it! Professors actually care about their students. There are lots of opportunities to network and gain leadership skills. Strong alumni connections can often lead to jobs upon graduation.
