I love the people that are involved with making MBU great! The professors here are interested in you and want to help you with anything. The people here are very open and easy to talk to. The atmosphere here is a very positive and the curriculum is very stable and educational. I would like MBU to get some artistic classes because that would give the students something fun and less stressful to take.

My experience at Maranatha was a very delightful experience! I love the small, family like atmosphere. Everyone knows each other, the teachers know you by name. The small town for me was another plus. The facilities are wonderful. They are kept clean and up to date. I would totally recommend Maranatha to any young person who is looking for a great christian college to attend!
I love Marantha Baptist University! Maranatha is a small college that is very welcoming. The professors are always very helpful and are willing to take the time to help you. The food is great and it is always fun to eat in the Dinning Common with a group of friends. There are also encouraging chapel sessions every morning. My most favorite thing about Maranatha is the online duel credit courses available for high school students. I was able to complete 26 credit hours before coming to campus and arrived as a second semester freshman! This was a huge money saver for me and I highly recommend it to all college students considering any college.
