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.
Review Lewis University
I am a transfer student, who transferred to Lewis University. It is my first semester there and it has been amazing! I have recently joined a business professional fraternity. It will help me further succeed in my business career. I have made some awesome friends and the teachers there are very knowledgable as well. I would not have it any other way.
The faculty and staff are very supportive and helpful. It's nice to know that they are there for you and want to help you succeed. Most of the faculty and staff are friendly and always take that extra step to help you in any way that they can. I've had professors email me about events going on through the university or outside the university because they thought I might be interested in attending. Likewise, I have been emailed about opportunities such as scholarships or events I can volunteer for on campus. Overall, I'm very glad I chose Lewis University. The curriculum was challenging and at times exciting. I worked for my campus for four years and have loved multiple jobs I've had on campus throughout the years. Lewis is a wonderful school and I would recommend it to anyone.
