Miles College Reviews
I thoroughly enjoyed my Miles College experience. This small, family-oriented HBCU allowed me to make life long friendships, network with exceptional professionals in my field, and taught me rewarding lessons that I could use after college. I loved the pride and comradery amongst the students, faculty, and staff. The campus life was filled with endless activities and numerous clubs and organizations to join. The dorms and student recreation center were nice and not far from "the yard" were the greek organizations hosted step shows and cookouts. The football team had a winning record and continue to win SIAC championships. Most importantly the teachers genuinely cared about each and every student and wanted everyone to succeed. Miles College embodies "Culture, Class, and Civility".
Do to Covid 19 my freshman year is not at all what I was expecting. Miles is doing a great job at making sure everyone is following protocol and social distancing. My teachers are doing a good job with the online teaching and the cafeteria food is pretty good. The down side to my experience here is, my second week of school we had a fire in my housing unit. It was one of the most scariest times of my life. Not knowing if everything I owned was destroyed or not. Thank God I hand minimal damage. I wish the school would have done a better job in communicating with the students better. We were basically just shuffled around not really knowing what was going on. I literally moved three times before I was finally place in a permanent unit. I also have been having problems with getting active phone/fax numbers for any of the administration here. Its very frustrating but hopefully things will get better.
The Illustrious Miles College is a very unique and welcoming college. The campus’s atmosphere is emerged in positivity, growth, and dedication provided by not only the students, but also each and every professor and staff member. This school is very family oriented and thrives on making each individual feel comfortable in discovering and becoming their true selves in this world. Miles College (soon to be Miles University) is a great place to start your journey in your career field and your overall walk of life.
