Madonna university has a great Forensics course, and as a high school dual enrollment student, I find the courses manageable through studying and hard work. As a high school aged student, I was surprised to find the other students very welcoming to offering help, and I offering help to them. I found the professors to be very professional most of the time, and one has even assisted me greatly with a letter of recommendation! The food is enjoyable, though heading to the fried food grill too many times may leave you with a stomach ache. Luckily, they have a buffet style cafeteria, where they have a healthier selection of food. All in all, I find the entire aspect of Madonna University to be a very good one, with only a few flaws.

It is not the type of place you want to go to so you can get a Biology degree, but it has it charms at times. The Campus is small, although certain parts are very beautiful. Classes are small, which is a plus if you like that type of environment. Problem is, there is a limited selection of courses available at any given time. They only offer Calc III once every four years, so that may elude to something. Most profs know their material, however a few have also have communication problems with their students. Music department is great! Overall, feels like a very safe environment!
Love the atmosphere and classes here at Madonna. The professors really do help you understand the material well and encourage you to succeed by giving you great resources for learning. The SI that comes with certain classes is such a privilege that not most schools offer, especially for free! Madonna University strives to assist its students in being the best student that they can be in order to achieve their goals!
