MidAmerica Nazarene University Reviews
MNU is a great Christian university! All college students will learn the values of being a Christian and how to maintain that relationship throughout the workforce, education, and life. This university also has a very calm atmosphere that will allow students to feel at peace when walking to classes, getting work done at the library, and so much more.
I have appreciated the atmosphere of MNU. I have been encouraged to explore and grow, and I have seen my learning increase by leaps and bounds. I love the teachers; they truly care about me! I have been developing such a depth in my relationship with God and with others that I never even dared imagine.
Considering I am going back to college since 2003 to a different university of my own choosing, I have throughly enjoyed my conversations with personal at MNU. They have been helpful and kind. They have taken a considerable amount of time to invest in me. Something that even my previous university did not do when called upon to help me with continuing my education.
