Marion Military Institute Reviews

The school which is set to simulate service academies is represented by almost every state in the country. Unlike most universities in the nation, Marion Military Institute instills in every student an importance in timeliness, and the core values which are Truth, Honor, and Service. The leadership in the corp works hard to encourage every cadet to practice the core values by stressing the importance of keeping your 'battle buddies' in check. The corp also has many opportunities to learn and grow as a leader which is why it is known as the "Leadership college of Alabama." Between clubs like White Knights, Honor Guard, Scuba Tigers, and Flying Tigers, (just to name a few) students have an enriching experience that they will always keep with them through their adult lives. The school offers a variety of programs to prepare students for their futures such as the Early Commissioning Program and the Service Academy Program that rocket students ahead of their peers.

Some of the greatest professors in the nation are at MMI. The admissions staff is very helpful, and just about any professional adult on campus would go out of their way to help you. Unfortunately, the cadet leadership is corrupted and those in higher ranking cadet positions do not deserve to be there. During my year at MMI, I saw a trend of those freshmen and sophomore cadets who kissed up to the higher cadet leadership, to be in the best shape when it came time to receive promotions. Bullying and some hazing by cadets are in the norm of some of the corp of cadet activities. Before choosing MMI, I would ask the admissions department about how many cadets leave after their freshman year, and why.
The town of Marion has nothing, fortunately for cadets, you are not allowed to leave campus very often, so what is in the town is irrelevant. Campus facilities are poor, even though renovations seem to be currently in the works.
I spent two years at MMI and graduated with an Associates Degree. It is in a rural area, but the school places focus on academics and preparing for the military. I am not entering the military but met a lot of good people there. I can honestly say I am "MarionMade!"
