Moody was an excellent school! Not only did I receive an excellent education, but I also grew spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and socially. My professors were wonderful - they taught the content very well, and they were always available to help!
Review Moody Bible Institute
I have found that the environment of Moody Bible Institute in invigorating and and a breath of fresh air, filled with people desiring to better themselves through educational and practical ministry in the help of others in the local community and places abroad, through the betterment and maturing of oneself spiritually. All of these things done for the glory of God, and the betterment of humankind. The Students there are friendly, and inviting always full of smiles and willingness to help one in need. the Faculty and staff there are highly educated and masters in their various concentrations, yet apt and prone to developing the minds and hearts of their students, not by their own knowledge but the knowledge found in the Word of God. In essence, the institution and definition of Moody is a place that has manifested the focal point of the Bible, which is Love, Grace, Mercy, and the invitation to understand and become apart of the family of God, in Christ.
As a student who has completed her first year at the school, I have found it to be wonderful overall. The school has many different opportunities to build community. It's a smaller school, but there are many groups to be a part of, as well as simply making use of the open lounge and activity space. The professors, overall, have a heart for the students and their subject, and want to see students walk away from class having learned something of value, whether it came from the lecture or outside of it. The school needs to improve their communication on several fronts, as well as update some of their buildings. At times, it seems as if the voices of the students are not heard or consulted.
