Midway University Reviews
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!
I love the close knit community feeling. Everyone there from the staff, to the students to the community care for each other like no bigger university ever could. the class sizes are very reasonable and you are able to get the experience with your professor that you wouldn't get if you where to go to a bigger university. Living on campus gave you interactions with people you wouldn't get had there been more housing options, the dining hall was filled with joy everyday as many students came in chatting with each other. Overall a smaller university is something I will recommend to anyone who is having a hard time choosing between colleges.
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.
