Methodist University is a good campus and has a lot of outside the campus things to do. Methodist University isn't really a party campus since it is small and its doesn't serve any alcoholic beverages at sporting events. I think that Methodist University would become a better campus if the staff or administration would have more entertaining experiences around the campus. My experience with athletics is that the teams are leaning towards the right direction into becoming a school that contends for conference championships in all sports.

So far, I have loved my experience with Methodist University. The staff is wonderful to work with, and they are very helpful in the starting process. I not only was able to contact my advisor and get a response promptly, but they were able to set me up to succeed in my coming years at the University. My classes were picked out for me, so I know what I need to take to get me Gen Eds out of the way, and not worry last minute to get them done.
I was recently accepted to Methodist University, therefore, I have only had the pleasure the meet the admissions, financial aid and veterans assistance staff at Methodist University. My experience with the staff, up to this point, has been fantastic.
