Methodist University Reviews
What I like about Methodist University is that it reminds of the small town I grew up in when I lived in Middlesex, New Jersey. Whether it is in class or I am participating on campus for school events, it is a personal experience and that I am not just another body in the school that goes unnoticed. What I like the most is the small class sizes that gives the teacher the ability to help me out with class material one on one. What I would like to see change at our school which is currently being talked about with our Student Government Association is the attendance policy. For some classes you can only receive a handful of absences, no matter the reason why you missed class. I believe this is unfair to students, especially with the threat of the corona virus, that there should be excused absences due to illness or inability to get to class due to physical injury or other valid reasons.
I did take online classes for half of my spring semester, but this was due to the rising threat of the corona virus which forced schools to shut down and to begin virtual learning. I had a great experience with this. It was a situation where everyone was learning to adjust to the new learning system, the professors included. Students and professors held each other accountable but understood there would be mistakes and rooms for improvement and that we needed to work with each other to get through the dilemma together.
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.
