Methodist University is extremely high priced for the level of education you are getting. In my short time here my advisors have been terrible and pretty much forced me to transfer. Athletics aren't very good outside of the Golf teams, Lacrosse is a new program, I was recruited for lacrosse and played a year here, good atmosphere, good team, good skill level, not competitive enough. Food is pretty good usually, every now and then there is an off day. All and all its a pretty bad experience, really wish the school was more conservative with the number of conservatives that are on campus, but universities are all liberal now a days so what can you expect.
Review Your College
I am in my first year of college, and it was a tough start being that I have just retired from the U.S Army, and there is a large age gape between me and my peers. One of the great things about Methodist University is teacher to student ratio. most of my class' have less than 15 students. All of the teachers that I have had are easy to talk too, and will bend over backwards to help you understand any material that you may have not comprehended.
I truly believe I wouldn't have grown as much as an individual or gotten so many opportunities to lead and do what I love, at another campus. Methodist has provided for me through the classes, clubs, organizations, honors, etc. From the weekly events that student activities and residential housing assistants plan to classes. Certain classes can't be helped but all professors make sure their students know they are there to help. And our names are known along with our faces. That helps immensely with grades and self confidence. I couldn't have asked for a better college experience so far!
