Terrible. You are fined if you do not go to mandatory chapel. Title 9 reports are ignored. Residential life is not supportive, nor helpful. There is nothing to do if you are not an athlete. Dorm rules are strict. Guys/girls are not allowed in dorms on tuesdays and Thursday’s past 11pm. Dorm WiFi is often bad and the vents are filled with mold and mildew. People are condescending and there aren’t many events held. The cafeteria has had several health code violations. The ONLY good thing I can actually say about this place are the teachers. The teachers care about their students, although they are not paid enough. The classes are small, however you can find that experience at many private university’s.

It's a fantastic University. Rarely do you find a University with a community that cares about you. The Professors actually care about not only your academic success, but how you're doing as a person. The school fosters a positive Christian atmosphere, and has plenty of fun social events. The food is okay, but there are many options to choose from each day. I would recommend MNU to anyone looking for a small Christian University with many opportunities to build friendships and connections, and also to obtain the skills and knowledge for not just a future career, but also for life in general.
I like that everyone feels at home here! The community atmosphere is so loving and caring. No one is excluded out of anything. It's anyone's decision to do certain activities, but when students do go they love it.
