McKendree University Reviews
Like that online options are available, especially being involved in sports. Looking forward to fall of 2020!
Many of the professors in the college are below average, many of my high school teachers were much better with a class. While many teachers are underwhelming there are a few professors who go above and beyond to really help the student learn and enjoy class. Many of the building at McKendree are in need of repairs. The areas with the largest need for repairs are the student housing areas. Many of the amenities for the students are not taken care of such as a beach volleyball court infested with weeds.
I experienced online format because of the coronavirus. Although there are some internet problem, I have a good experience when learning online. The instructors are dedicated and hard-working to give me the best foundation despite the fact that they have to switch to online learning.
