I cannot begin to tell you how amazing my experience at Maryville has been. I used to go to a public state school and mine personally was not helpful nor did the professors care because there were so many of us. At Maryville, professors truly want to see us succeed. My advisor is extremely helpful. I am a senior going into my last semester and I have a job lined up. The alumni connections Maryville has are unmatched. Everyone is so friendly here as well! Parking is FREE. I love this school.
Review Maryville University
Maryville University is a great place for undergraduate students and for graduate students. The application process is easy and straight forward. The professors are some of the best in the Midwest!
While Maryville University doesn't represent the massive universities that dominate the foreground of American higher education, it definitely has some great pros that make it a great school and alternative for those whom don't want to attend the typical state schools that, for the most part, have a campus so large that it would take days to fully cover the campus. The university benefits from this trope as it allows classes to be small and personal, with professors that take pride in their work and staff that go out of their way to ensure the students get what they want out of their college experience. However, the university also falls victim to it's size as some aspects of the "college experience" is left to be desired. The lack of more than one dining option makes the otherwise decent food get old within a couple of months and its location also makes it virtually impossible to experience St.Louis without the use of a car, or go anywhere without a car for that matter.
