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!

Lewis has come a long way since my wife and I attended in the 1980's, however it has evolved into a premier regional college. They have added numerous new dorms, and educational facilities and have broken ground on a beautiful new Student Union to be envied by other facilities!
I really like how close a student can get to their professors. The professors really make a lot of time for their students and care dearly for them. I would say for an English major this school is perfectly fine to attend as for a Communications major, especially in the field of journalism, it's a little lacking. I wish that they pushed students a bit more because, in the real world, things are more competitive snd that competitive element is missing at Lewis. Otherwise it's a very open and accepting community. Campus life is a little dull seeing as it is a commuter-heavy schoop so it's tough to get students back on campus. However, it is easy to create relationships with those in your respective major and you grow a small community there as I have through Communications and English. It's just hard to branch out from your majors, unless you live on campus.
