Moody Bible Institute Reviews

452 reviews
All Categories
Moody Bible Institute is a great institution to receive an undergraduate degree with a solid biblical education. They have a great community of students who often have gatherings and faculty that are genuinely interested in students' well-being. Thanks to dedicated donors, students attend tuition-free, having to only pay for living and food expenses. Located in the heart of Chicago with a tight-knit campus, it is a short walk to Michigan Avenue, the Lake, and accessible on public transit, such as the Red and Brown Lines. Recent disturbances include the closing of their Spokane campus, the loss of 1/3 of the faculty starting Fall 2018, and interim President and Provost due to unconventional circumstances.

I have loved my experience at Moody. The professors are AMAZING, some of them are the most intelligent people I have ever met. If you want a great biblical education, you will receive one. They truly care about the students. They will bend over backwards to help you succeed. The school's reputation provides the students with incredible opportunities.
However on the flip side, the registrar is very difficult to manage. They are very disorganized, bad at communicating and are seriously struggling with finances having to completely shut down a campus. Unfortunately because of these things, trust and morale has dropped significantly.
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!
