Lewis University Reviews
I love Lewis University and feel as though I have gotten a wonderful education. My professors have "real world" experience and they are readily available for me. I feel as though they are not only instructors, but they have a personal interest in me! The campus is beautiful - it's an arboretum; and my fellow students are kind and invested in learning. I have made many wonderful friends here. Lewis University is definitely a 5-star institution!
The school and academics themselves are amazing the campus is so pretty and well kept year round. Absolutely love it. The professors that i have dealt with in my majors classes are top notch and so amazing. They are willing to go above and beyond for their students to help them excel in any way. I love where I live its very nice and well kept. Athletics I am disappointed with and kind of disgusted with, specifically the women's volleyball program. They allowed for tolerated bullying within their program. The school is dealing with it appropriately which i am greatly appreciating. Every other aspect of my experience at Lewis has been wonderful beside being apart of the women's volleyball program.
Lewis University has a great campus and a lot of activities to do in your free time. The only complaint I have is that some of the professors do not seem to care and take a long time putting grades in, but that is only a few. Other than that, there is a lot of parking and the scenery is beautiful. Lastly, their biology program is amazing!
