    I love this college! great environment and student involvement. The professors here care about their students and see student success as their own. The classes are small and interpersonal, very well structured and set students up to succeed academically and personally. The non teaching faculty are always available to help and very pleasant to deal with. You are not just your tuition like i felt at a much larger college in South Carolina. I am always made to feel like a priority and i wouldn't go anywhere else.

    McMurry is a small private institution in Abilene, Texas. Every single professor that I've encountered so far in my short year and a half all have the same goals for you in mind. If you need anything at all they are always there to help whether it be for their class, if you're having a bad day or if there's something going on in your personal life that you just need to get out. The professors and counselors are extremely helpful and intuitive. The McMurry community is awesome and they are always doing good things for the community of Abilene. This University is perfect if you're looking for a small community of people your age, looking to make a change in your community, need help such as one on one with a professor to understand certain concepts, go at your own pace classes, and much more.
    Coming from a big city, McMurry was the perfect college town for me! I wanted to get away from all the partying, noise, and stress. I loved that I knew literally everyone on campus and glad that we became one big family. Everything is in walking distance from classes, gym, track, dining hall, dorms, and even shopping. The professors truly care about the future of the students and keep in contact even after graduation. I'm glad I chose McMurry!
