Methodist was a great experience for me. It was a small school setting, and I loved that my professors actually knew me by name. I would recommend MU for students who want a personal college experience with a quality educational outcome!

The school is a very small school with people intertwine together with different social groups, clubs, and sports. Most of the students on campus are student athletes making the game atmosphere inviting. The classes are rigorous and fun as you dive right into your major. The only problem with the school is there is not much social life outside of your organized hangouts and they can become boring really fast.
What I love about Methodist University is that it is a small University. Professors know their students on a more personal level and it makes it easier to build relationships and communication. I also love that the campus is beautiful and everything is together, its not all spread out. I feel safe here and the people are super friendly. I would like to see the parking change, there is limited parking and confusing hours as to where you can and can not park.
