I love how Montreat is a great private Christian higher education institution. I like how the classes are small with an average class size of 19 people which allows for great student teacher interactions. At Montreat the campus is small which means you can get to know alot of people on a personal level. Also being a collegiate golfer at Montreat I like how majority if the student body are athletes, how the professors are very understanding when it comes to missing classes for a sporting event. Although Montreat has some flaws with the way they handle financial aid and the condition of the dorm rooms overall the college is a great place to learn.
Review Montreat College
I have been a student at Montreat for three full semesters, and throughout that time I have loved my time here. The facilities are great and for athletes it's a big attraction. The only thing I would like to see a change in is the attitude difference between the faculty. There needs to be more of a consistent attitude about whether or not they care about the student or not. Either they all try and help the student or not. Too many of the professors have a different attitude about giving the students a chance at success.
I'd never say Montreat is the best; it has its flaws like every school does, but I will admit it's amazing. We're in a mountain surrounded by nothing but nature, classmates, and God. It's a place of serenity, a place of fellowship, and a school all in one. The teachers are willing to go out of their way to help you and with the smaller classes it makes that a little bit easier. Montreat is a beautiful Christian college that is focused on making you into the best person you can be professionally and spiritually. I wouldn't pick another school ever with the fact I'll be a little over two hours away from home because im receiving a great education, meeting new people, and playing college lacrosse.
