Mars Hill University Reviews
Personally, I have enjoyed the school in terms of meeting different clubs;however, for the price the school is really poor devolped over the years and isn’t inclined to push students for academic success. Most students are pass along athletes who usually don’t care what their grades are and some of the professors have embraced this more specific lower classes such as intro to visual arts. If a professor seems shady leave immediately as they are not really supportive unless you demand it at times. The food is terrible: 40,000 a year shouldn’t allow me 5 food options every day it’s quite sad. Housing is okay but compared to other schools is very low quality. Local area is beautiful but small, the party scene is non existent. Honestly wingate or Gardner Webb are better options regarding a private school and WCU or Appalachian for state school. Take my advice on this 🤙🏽
Personally I love mars Hill. Although they need to work on the cafe food, they have renovated a lot of the buildings and more plans to continue. The area is great, it's close to downtown Asheville and other places and the views almost everywhere are so gorgeous! The professors are very good depending on your major. One of the major problems is when you try to transfer credits, Mars hill doesn't do a good job with transferring credits in or out. They are big on athletics and over half of the student population are athletes. I give Mars hill a thumbs up because I've thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and I would recommend this school to others!
MHU is a great school from a academic standpoint. The professors are willing to go out of their way to help and have unlimited office hours. Classes are small and have on average about 15 people in them. This school is all about athletes though. It is hard for the non-athletes to socialize because most of the athletes are already in their clicks. If you are walking past somebody on the sidewalk and smile at them, odds are they won’t smile back. Everybody keeps to themselves here. Dining hall food is horrible and has odd hours. Nothing to do on the weekends at all unless you want to drive to Asheville. Weekends here are like watching paint dry on a wall. Most people go home on the weekends anyway so it makes it hard to socialize and make a friend.
