My grandparents taught here and I felt so welcome when I went off. I chose this school because the campus was small enough to one could know anyone and everyone. This school is perfect!
Review MacMurray College
I am in one of the sororities on campus. It is pretty easy to get in as long as you get along with most of the existing girls. I am very glad that I pledged and have enjoyed my time with my sorority sisters. There is no sorority housing because Jacksonville does not allow it, however we are trying to get our meeting room back so we will have some space of our own.
I love the small town, community feel that comes with going to MacMurray. The nursing professors are very knowledgeable and are very helpful. I enjoy being apart of the women's golf team.
