I took my freshmen year at Moody Bible Institute through their FYOP (First Year Online) program. I was grateful that though studying online, I connected to a lot of students and I felt the experience better prepared me for living on campus. The student body is joyful, encouraging, and up-lifting.

The business aspect of Moody Bible Institute is not always the greatest. In my freshmen year, specifically, I felt that the Institute did not do well in guiding me through different aspects, such as the payment process and how to accurately access my online classes.

Overall, I have thus far loved studying with Moody Bible Institute!

Moody Bible Institute is located in the heart of Chicago. It's a bible college that has excellent education. They have bible courses and don't require one to take regular college course classes such as Math, Science or History during the first two years in college. The tuition is very affordable as it is about $16,000 a year. This is due to the fact that there are various generous donors that willing give because they value education and ministry. The professors are amazing because they desire to invest in students and want their students to succeed in school. Since MBI is in the heart of Chicago, it can get very busy! There's a lot of things students can do such as going to the lake (which is very close by!) to visiting China Town or even just going to the Pier. This school is very diverse with many students all over including international students too.
Moody is a great place to prepare for ministry and not to get burdened down with an incredible amount of debt. I have played soccer at Moody and been pushed and grown, learned life lessons, by the coaches and teammates that will be part of my life far beyond my four years. Although the campus is in downtown Chicago, it is a beautiful, comfortable, safe setting. There is so much to do and explore here on a budget-minded wallet! I know that I will be sufficiently ready for the challenges that I will face in ministry and my career due to the outstanding education I received.
