Great professors, great students. Bad administration, no party scene.

Overall I would absolutely do it all over again if I could. Nothing was perfect by any means, but the relationships I built there are way too strong to wish I would have gone somewhere else. Almost all of my current friends went to Malone, met most of them there. All suffered through the same thing and there is a bonding experience we have from that ha.

Love that school, always will and I hope it is here for a long time to come!

Great community, good professors, friendly students, pretty campus. Very small and conservative, but there are students from a wide variety of backgrounds and many professors with starkly liberal views.
Not much of a party scene, except for the off-campus housing. Many sports teams or friend groups will host parties at their houses near campus, but not everyone knows about the parties so they're never huge. Some students are against partying and drinking so it doesn't get talked about much on campus.
The sports programs and coaches are phenomenal for a school Malone's size. Definitely competitive in the conference yet one of the smallest division 2 schools in Ohio.
Overall, great experience at Malone and would recommend to anyone interested in a liberal arts college!!
Malone University is a school that combines a high academic standard with student friendly environment. I originally attended Malone back in 2017 for my bachelor's and loved my experience so much that I am going back to pursue my master's degree in nursing. The reason I am going back is because I do not feel like just a nber at Malone. Each student is treated like a valued person and the professors are completely invested in your success. Benefits of attending Malone include a curriculum that is pretty straight forward, financial aid handles everything for you once you fill out your FAFSA, student advisors sign you up for every class so that you do not have to yourself, your books are mailed to you so that you do not have to go to a book store to pick them up and professors that get back to you in a timely manner. All of these collectively give the student a pleasant experience. I highly recommend this University.
