Lewis University Reviews

Lewis has a very open and supportive environment. Campus and class sizes are small, but that provides the opportunity for more student-professor direct contact and allows the students to have great communication and learning experiences. Lewis is diverse, but a large population of the students are commuters so if you're looking to stay on campus, that may be something you would like to take into account. Lewis is a school that is focused on the academics of their students and fostering of personal and professional qualities.

I love the campus! It's very peaceful and absolutely gorgeous. The students are always welcoming and friendly to everyone. However, the dorm room I'm living in is very small. Also, their art department isn't as great as I had hoped. I am a graphics design major, and I feel like I'm not getting as great of an education as I would if I were a nursing major or an aviation major, which are the school's two well-known majors.
I have been at Lewis University for one semester, and I have greatly enjoyed my time here. The atmosphere of the university is very friendly, and the landscaping is beautiful. The faculty are very responsive and ready to help the students in any way they can. They genuinely want to help their students learn. I have benefited from the real life experience of my professors as they show the importance of learning. Learning is not about cramming knowledge to pass tests and obtain a good grade, but rather it is gaining tools to be used life-long. I am majoring in Business Administration and Accounting, and I see already how the classes I am taking will apply to any job I may have in the workplace.
