McPherson college is a good place if you want to primarily focus on school, or if you want to continue your sport, but you aren't DI level. It is a pretty campus with nice students, and kind staff. If you come to McPherson you have to realize that you will be an open book. Everybody knows everybody. There are a few flaws, but that comes with all small schools!

McPherson College has been a great school so far. I love the hometown feeling and the locals are very friendly. I am a student athlete playing baseball in my sophomore year. My team mates and coach are like my family. We bond day and night together. As far as living, the dorms are okay. They need to be updated because they are too old. They still are standing but a lot of things stop working throughout the year. As far as food, the cafeteria is much better than the year before.
I Love the student teacher ratio! The teachers, faculty and city want Mac Students to be successful.
