My school has a wonderful community, outstanding teachers, and its in an awesome location. Moody Bible Institute provides students with the education that they need to be fully equipped to go out and serve the world however God has called them. Some of my favorite moments at MBI are with friends. My school is unique because the teachers love their students the way Jesus Christ has called everyone to love one another and students at my school really care about our community on campus and off of campus. MBI students and staff reach out to those in our surrounding communities to share the love of God with them!
Review Moody Bible Institute
I am a full-time online student at Moody Bible Institute and, so far, I have been thoroughly impressed with their online forum and the quality of their education. Prior to my choosing MBI, I was nervous about earning 100% of my degree online. After I started my classes, I realized that, even though it was online, my professors were still very personal and they were all clearly excited to teach me and to help me grow as a learner and as a Christian. The classes are challenging, but not so much so that I feel like I can't accomplish it. I have learned a lot about myself and my purpose in life throughout my first year with MBI and I am now entering into the classes more closely related to my major.
I've had an overall great experience! The community is great, very welcoming and open. The professors are sincere and care about the well-being of the students, and they make themselves available. I have found it easy to get plugged into different student groups on campus. The academic load is heavy, but bearable. They have sound teaching and doctrine, and great conferences!
