The campus is absolutely beautiful! It's small enough that walking across campus takes less than 10 minutes. All of my professors have been amazing, especially the nursing staff! Class sizes are usually around 20-30 depending on the room size. I have had no bad experiences here, so I definitely recommend Midway to anyone!

While studying through Midway, I found most professors to be extremely helpful and learned a lot from them. However, the higher the level of leadership and the longer some professors have been there, the less helpful and caring they are. It doesn't matter if you follow your advisor's plan and approval for classes, if you aren't knowledgeable about the order of things, you will be a senior for three or more years. It doesn't even matter if they tell you everything is okay and they will make sure you graduate by a certain time. Don't take their word for it. You are truly on your own! Also, the negative ratings of employees on Glassdoor are a true reflection of how things operate at Midway all the way down to the students. Their leadership needs to learn from the younger professors and staff.
Midway is a go to college for small campus life while still gaining a strong education. A very homey environment, as well as teachers who care about you, both as a student and as a person. Small size classes equal personal help from teachers allowing you to make the most of your education at the palm of your hand.
