Methodist College Reviews
This upcoming spring semester I will be going into my second semester at Methodist. So far I have absolutely loved it! I transferred to Methodist from ICC and the transition was very smooth. I was really nervous but all the faculty and staff at Methodist made my transition so much easier! I was able to connect with other students right away. Everyone is so friendly and there is a very homey and friendly environment.
Requires volunteer hours in order to graduate. Unless you are a 2nd degree student. The professors are alright depending on the class. There are no athletic clubs or teams. There are only two or three clubs. Parking is close but when everyone has class it is difficult to find a spot.
I have not yet started at Methodist college of Nursing, but I am getting excited to as the spring semester is approaching. I love Methodist college because it is a smaller private school. It focuses on what I want to do. I love that students have the opportunity to live right on campus too. The only thing that I would like to see change is it's size. I hope Methodist continues to grow and can add more master degree programs. Overall, I absolutely loved visiting Methodist college.
