Madonna University Reviews
I love the friendliness of the faculty. The student life is great. The students and professors are working to help everyone strive to be better. The classes are long but they pay off at the end. Tuition is cheaper than most universities. The campus is beautiful in the winter and summer. It feels like home if your coming from out of state. Madonna is a catholic University but they do not influence your religion. Their goal is to help you become the better you! They provide easy services for any need you may have. They honestly prepare you for your career and when you graduate, you will see all your had work has finally paid off.
My experience with Madonna has varied. There are several staff members who go above and beyond to be pleasant, courteous, considerate and helpful to their students, which is not something you find at all universities. However, I have also had several interactions where the staff members were extremely unorganized, making my pursuit of my education significantly more difficult and confusing than it needs to be. The price of attendance in comparison with financial aid is difficult for many as well.
Madonna is an amazing school for all kinds of students. I am in nursing program and have been blown away by the wonderful teachers, clinical instructors, and advisors who are there to help every step of the way. The campus is beautiful and the teachers are great!
