    Okay so far. Not fond of Nursing Schools grading policy. Grade inflation is out of control and doesn't make sense. Students who study and pass exams end up doing worse than students who fail after Professors give points back? Like if someone makes a 60 and another person makes an 80 why does the person with the 60 end up making a 90 and the person with 80 ends up with 84? Ridiculous! This happens on a regular basis. Sure, I am happy for my fellow students who are able to stay in program because of it, but when their GPA surpasses mine because of it, it's not okay! Not worth questioning their method of madness since it is such a small program. They could make your life hell. They definitely have favorites. Many students receive the SIMS scholarship maybe they have to inflate grades so they don't fail out and money isn't wasted.

    I really enjoyed my first year at LaGrange and can’t wait to come back for my sophomore year. I am involved in the athletics here and I had a great season with them. My teammates and I got a long very well and I can’t wait to for this upcoming season with them. Even though this is a small and historical school, I do think the dorms should be updated especially Henry and also provide another food option on campus. The campus is really pretty though especially during the fall. The historical brick buildings is one thing that drew me to this school. This school also has great professors that tend to you and help you through courses. One course is their nursing program which is what we are known for and is what I am majoring in, which I am very excited about!
    LaGrange College is a place that prides on Civility, Excellence, Diversity and Service. With its affiliation with the United Methodist Church, we pride ourselves on being suitable people for the society that we live in. It is not a large school housing around 1000 students, so the opportunity to be in a leadership role is very welcoming. The small class room setting allows students to interact with professors to truly understand the criteria that is being taught. Athletics and Fine Arts are seen as gifts at LaGrange. Each athletic department supports one another and strives to be the best in the USA South Conference. The theater department also brings much life to the school by showcasing incredible performances for students and surrounding public.
