Some of the positive things about this school would include: a great staff, nice people, diversity, small classroom sizes, and convenient location. The negatives would definitely be the limited resources due to it being a small school and the lack of meal plans.The athletics here are pretty good. Rugby definitely is the main sport at Life University. Other sports we have include: volleyball, basketball, swimming, volleyball, track, cross country, soccer, and bowling. Overall is a pretty average school, but if you are looking to start a career in chiropractic this school is probably the best option. Undergrad programs need to be expanded, but Life University overall is a good choice.

As a student athlete wrestler on the womens wrestling team, the coaches and my team make this an awesome experience.

However, I'd like it better if school events like seminars and graduation would be held at a different location aside from the athletics building; all sports teams need the building for practice and to boot us from using our practice space to hold events unrelated to our sport is very offensive and intrustive and disrespectful to our sport and to the athletes and coaches.

life is how you make of it. I'm glad I'm here; im here to wrestle and I owe it all to my coach
The school has great core values and the staff is always there to help you whenever needed! The are so many student services, clubs, and activities to keep one's self occupied. The curriculum is demanding, but realistic and fun. The surrounding area has a lot to do as well, with friendly people! Overall great school and campus to be at!
