Moody Bible Institute Reviews

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.
Review Moody Bible Institute
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!
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.
